Author Chris Brookmyre takes players inside Bedlam

News Xbox One

We recently reviewed genre-hoping FPS Bedlam and was blown away by the unique storytelling tied so intimately into the experience. It’s an odd and clever game that doesn’t always tap into the fun we so often associate with games but instead purposely builds on frustration and unfairness in order to share its story. It’s terrific and awful at the same time, and a nightmare to try and describe, but fortunately Chris Brookmyre, author of both the Bedlam book and the accompanying game, has a new behind-the-scenes video where he 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.

If the video wasn’t enough to tempt you into playing, why not give our review a read.

Some say Greg isn’t one person but a group of many people posting under the pseudonym “Greg”. No one knows for sure but either way, as long as he continues to fight the good fight of reviewing games, then we will always consider him a hero.
