Colin McComb has teamed with developer Drop Bear Bytes as the Creative Lead for RPG, Broken Roads.
Industry veteran, McComb has worked on titles like Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Wasteland 2 and Wasteland 3 for the past 25 years.
Drop Bear Bytes was founded in 2019 in Torquay, Victoria and has a team composed of developers, artists and writers from Australia, South Africa, Canada, UK, USA and China. Broken Roads is a post-apocalyptic RPG that aims to set itself apart with its Moral Compass alignment system.It’s not all that often that you get a chance to work on a game that combines two major foci of your resume. When Craig [Ritchie, founder of Drop Bear Bytes] told me what he wanted to do with the setting and the philosophy of Broken Roads, I had to fight him because I was jealous of his idea. But then he let me join the team, so that was cool.
