Hitchhike your way to freedom in this crazy procedurally generated road trip. No one’s road is the same!

Road 96 really is a gorgeous road-trip narration game. You will uncover many different places and characters on your way to freedom. It is an evolving story-based adventure inspired by many top notch directors, and in it you will find elements of action, exploration, and character encounters seasoned with many different unusual situations. This makes the game kind of unique and well thought through. The graphics of Road 96 are beautiful and its style really suits the game well. Soundtrack is also great and fitting, made-up of the hits of the 90s from the previous century. Its gameplay reminds us of DONTNOD Entertainment’s Life is Strange, or the Telltale Games’ products, which is not a bad thing at all, because we liked those games as well. The replayability factor of Road 96 is a lot bigger than with the games we just mentioned, as there are numerous different endings based on the dialogue choices you have made. The game costs 19,96 EUR which is not too greedy at all, based on all the content if offers. Make sure you grab it if you are in for some choice making and good story-telling. If not for twenty bucks then wait for it to go on sale and buy it then.

+ You create your own little story with the paths you take.

+ Great soundtrack.
– Some performance issues and goofy animations.

Final Verdict

The game is a must play for all fans of narration games. It looks gorgeous, it is visually very appealing and playing through it is great.
