Not For Broadcast is, apparently, a "propaganda simulator". When I bought this, I thought it was a mid-1980's TV studio broadcast simulator, which is, technically, true.

What I learned, very quickly, is that I don't want to play a TV studio broadcast simulator. Nor would I want to work in one.

I love the craft of making TV. I've spent hours upon hours listening to a podcast about showrunning.

Live TV? No. Too many moving parts that I had to pay attention to, and I ended up more stressed out than I was when I sat down to play.

It's a well-produced game, and reading up on it afterwards, it has an interesting storyline, but playing it through would just feel like hard work. It's times like this I wish you could gift a Steam game to someone who'd actually enjoy it.

Will I play Not For Broadcast again?

1: Nope.
