Road 96, a new narrative game from award-winning French indie studio DigixArt, has been announced for Nintendo Switch.
Opening up today's Nintendo Indie World Showcase, Road 96 has you trying to escape from a country on the brink of collapse. Your goal is to reach the border, thousands of miles away from your starting location, and you'll have "dozens" of choices to make as you forge your own path to get there.
The trailer shows off an intriguing cast of characters, as well as an interesting set of decisions to be made on your part. All of these decisions are said to alter your experience, sometimes closing options, sometimes opening them; every playthrough is procedurally generated, so you can always jump back in for a new run to see different storylines.
"We think Switch is the perfect platform to enjoy Road 96, literally 'on the road', in your backpack, anywhere," says creative director, Yoan Fanise. "The colourful landscapes and characters of Petria become even more impactful when you discover them in your hands. It’s a pleasure to have brands such as Nintendo and HP’s OMEN helping us with our little indie game."
Road 96 drives on to the Switch eShop later this year. Let us know if you're planning on taking it for a spin with a carefully chosen comment below.
