Family Man, a Breaking Bad-inspired First-Person RPG from the development studio Broken Bear Games and Publisher No More Robots is coming to Steam on May 22. It's 30-minute demo of the full game, Family Man: Prologue, is available to download right now.
Family Man is a game that asks a simple question: how far are you willing to go for the sake of your family? This question is asked because the player owes money to the mob and they've got three weeks to pay it back. Will the player simply flip burgers for three weeks and get the required funds, or take on some dirty jobs for more cash but get themselves or their family in trouble?
It's up to the player, as each decision they make apparently affects everyone around them. Their neighborhood may flourish or wilt from the decisions that they make, and can either make the player's family bonds stronger then ever, or break down their marriage and relationship with their son.
The player will be able to explore the town of Riverport and decide how they want to handle each situation that arises. They can also unlock unique perks that will suit the player's own gameplay style, which can then lead into multiple endings that are based on the decisions that they make.
Family Man is available to try on Steam right now, and will be made available on May 22. If you also want to check out the game's Discord, go here.
