You may remember hearing about No Straight Roads earlier this year, a music rhythm action game being developed by Metronomik and being directed by Final Fantasy XV’s lead game designer Wan Hazmer. It had been confirmed for PS4 and PC for a release later this year, but things have changed. No Straight Roads will now be published by Sold Out which in turn means that on top of a digital release the PS4 version of the game will also get a physical release. That physical edition is ready to pre-order now for £29.99/€39.99/$39.99, but the digital version isn’t. In addition No Straight Roads will now be releasing at some point in 2020.
In No Straight Roads players take on the roles of Zuke and Mayday, members of the indie rock band Bunk Bed Junction. Unfortunately for them indie music as well as every other genre bar EDM has been outlawed by the NSR Mega Corporation which has gained control of Vinyl City. The two characters need to use the power of rock to smash the control of the EDM grip over their home. Music takes centre stage as the game is designed to use the melodies in the gameplay including boss battles.
We’ll see who wins in this battle next year.
