Broke Protocol allows you to define your own goals and identity in a persistent, interactive, and reactive online sandbox. Currently in open alpha at Brokeprotocol.com

You can roleplay in limitless ways to gain money, power, and influence in a diverse low-poly world. You start with nothing and have to build your wealth, while managing your hunger, thirst, stamina, and addiction levels.

Climb to the top of the criminal underworld, or fight it as a vigilante or law enforcer. You write your own story in Broke Protocol.

Already in open alpha testing, the game quickly gained press attention and a following. Now we are looking for a small financial push to make this promising indie title into the go-to game for engaging roleplaying and meaningful player-player interactions.

After months of planning, implementation, and testing, the latest update to Broke Protocol is finally ready. The Land, Sea, and Air Update is out now for all players on Steam. This update opens up new aircraft and boats for alternative means of transportation around the game world. It also introduces a new Mayor job and licenses required for operating vehicles.

Around various docks around the city, you'll find speedboats that can seat 3 (with extra storage in the rear). If you want to do some stealthy drug running between your farm and the city or hide an offshore chest, this is the ride of choice. Weather now affects ocean waves so watch the surf and keep the keel down.

Boat

Also, you'll now find flyable Cessnas in addition to the various choppers parked around the airport. This update is in preparation for anew area which will only be accessible by sea or air vehicles - a military base and federal prison situated on a separate island from the city. The Apache is now also armed must be bought and requires skill to operate.

Flying

Another big change: To legally use any vehicle requires the proper license. Licenses can be requested at the Town Hall from the new City Mayor position. The Mayor is a human controlled position and can accept or deny driver's, pilot's, boating, and gun licenses based on his/her discretion. Only 1 Mayor is allowed per server, but if you see any abuse, you can now start a votekick against them or others from the Player Menu (Tab key).

Rockets

Finally, a bunch of backend engine updates will improve graphics, AI, and spawn/view distances. Get the game on the Steam Store Page.


A more detailed changelog is here:
