Small Radios Big Televisions is tearing mysteries out of analog technology

More On: Small Radios Big Televisions

I wasn't expecting to be surprised today, but Small Radios Big Televisions is doing just that. The first thing you'll notice is the excellent digitized dreamscape from the soundtrack. Why do indie games get all the good music? Then you'll notice the polygonal Fez-like art style. With a point-and-click interface, you'll enter factories which send you into virtual worlds where you solve mechanical puzzles and map your way through these cutesy manufacturing plants. 

Then the music, the factories and the scenery gets glitchy. There's some mystery to unravel here, but the clues in this video are too obscure to parse. Super cool concept, though, in having to explore, manipulate and distort tape cassettes to make them "reveal their secrets," whatever their secrets happen to be. Not sure. But I'll keep my eye on this one.

Small Radios Big Televisions is coming to PC and PlayStation 4, developed by FIRE FACE and published by Adult Swim Games. The official website says it's coming Summer 2016, but we're officially into Fall 2016, so it sounds like it needs more time to bake.
