In this video, which you can see below, Chris Brookmyre, the author behind both novel and game, takes viewers on a short tour through some of the worlds players experience in Bedlam, explaining his thought processes and giving some new details on the game’s creation as he does so:
For those interested, the game is currently available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Here’s a quick summary of the game, courtesy of the official press release, and those curious can see our thoughts on the title here:
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.
