“As a lifelong gamer, Bedlam is the love-letter to gaming I’ve always wanted to write, and the team at RedBedlam have done an astonishing job bringing my ‘gameverse’ to life” said Christopher Brookmyre. “It’s a great feeling to know that gamers can now explore the world of Bedlam via a totally different medium.”
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.
