French studio DigixArt recently acquired by Koch Media is happy to announce that the procedural road-trip adventure Road 96 is out today on Nintendo Switch (link), Steam (link), GOG (link) and Epic Game Store (link). Road 96 will be also available as part of the Hitchhiker bundle (link), together with the OST featuring 9 artists and an original Game eBook containing the key stories from 10 years before the events happening in the game.
Road 96 is a procedural ever-evolving story-driven adventure game with survival elements in which players must escape a country ruled by an authoritarian regime that's on the brink of collapse. Road 96 has an ever-evolving story that unveils more and more on each run to escape the country, inspired by road trip movies from the 90s from directors like Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers and Bong Joon-ho. The game soundtrack features tracks from bands like Survive (Stranger Things).
Road 96 represents the most ambitious project from DigixArt, headed by industry veteran Yoan Fanise (Valiant Hearts, Memories Retold). Last June, the Road 96 Steam demo was one of the 5 most downloaded at the Steam Next Fest among a total of over 700 game demos, getting a great reception amongst critics and players.
