Captive Audience (Early Access) – A Thrilling Narrative Where You’re Trapped in a Game Show

Game Review

Captive Audience is a weird little first-person narrative thriller game that has you locked into a twisted game show where you need to perform specific tasks in order to survive.

You play as a character named Matt, which somehow got sucked into a game show where you need to wake up each new day and do some task in order to to keep the audience interested. If you don’t keep them watching, you’ll face some consequences- including getting your show cancelled and then getting killed because of it. It’s a dark game with some very emo humor.

As you play through the game’s days, you’ll learn about the backstory of Matt and why he’s being held captive. The tasks range from menial things like sending emails to more complex things like cooking breakfast. Every night another contestant on the show will talk to you through the walls in  your room and talk about your wife- she’s also locked into the game show.

The game is still in early access, but it’s already very entertaining and fun to play. It’s a very satirical and dark game, so be prepared for that. There’s about an hour full of content for you to play through, so enjoy it! Captive Audience is one for the books!

I play the newest to the crappiest indie games and filter them for the rest of the crew.

In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?

Indie devs: the last honest game creators.
