OverviewOverview

Embr, is an action fire-fighting game. You join the Emergency Services Revolution and respond to fires to make money, climbing the ladder of success and score points.

You play from first person perspective. At each call out you not only have to deal with each fire but also use your hose, axe, or trampoline, waterslide, grapple hook to manage the flames, electrocutions and explosions. There are also various explosive gases that you need to vent and grease fire that can't be dealt with water.

The tongue in cheek action is really just an excuse for time critical missions where you must quickly navigate the buildings and environments to achieve your rescue. As you success the jobs become harder and you unlock new tools and outfits.

The multiplayer aspect of the game means that players need to communicate to decide which roles they will play. The equipment you choose can then complement the other members of your team.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for depictions of mild violence. Embr contains frequent depictions of non-realistic violence set in a child-friendly setting. All the violence present in the game is slapstick in nature. The player must enter burning buildings and rescue a designated number of civilians. The player can pick up and throw humans whilst removing them from the buildings. When they are thrown, their bodies become limp and they fall to the ground in a ragdoll-like fashion. They remain on the floor for a few seconds before getting back up with no injuries. If a civilian is killed either by fire, falling a large distance or by being attacked by the player, they do not have any audible reaction, and instead immediately become a cartoon skeleton which falls to the floor.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
