Acclaimed Author Chris Brookmyre Takes Players Inside Genre-Hopping FPS Bedlam
London, 4 November 2015 – Following a successful launch week, a new behind-the-scenes gameplay video for the genre-hopping FPS Bedlam is now available. In the video, Chris Brookmyre, celebrated author and writer of both Bedlam the novel and the game, takes viewers on a short tour through some of the worlds seen in Bedlam, explaining his thought processes and giving extra details on the creation of the game.
Bedlam is available now on PlayStation®4, PC, Mac OSX and Xbox One, the all in one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. All versions are priced at $19.99 in the US.
In Bedlam, players take on the role of Heather Quinn (aka Athena), a programmer at medical scanning developer Neurosphere, who finds herself transported into the world of Starfire: a nineties FPS she remembers from her teen years. Searching for an explanation and a way home, she ventures beyond Starfire to discover a vast realm of interconnected game worlds documenting the evolution of the FPS genre and of video games in general. As Athena, players move through numerous game settings while battling against a digital conspiracy that seeks to destroy the game worlds and their characters. A fast-paced and authentically unique FPS, Bedlam serves up a dizzying variety of genres from fantasy RPGs to classic 2D arcade games to WWII shooters in an innovative journey through gaming nostalgia.
