UKIYO Publishing has announced that Death Road to Canada will be heading out to consoles in Spring 2018. The game is a randomly generated zombie-filled road trip northward. You can look for it on PlayStation 4, XBox One and Nintendo Switch.
In the game, you find yourself as a survivor of the dreaded zombie apocalypse. It’s your task to travel (and survive) from Florida to Ontario. You’ll “face off against near insurmountable odds” on a blood-soaked journey in a beautifully pixel-perfect survival game.
Of course, you’ll also have to pick up things along the way to help you on the journey. You’ll need to scavenge the devastated game world to find “over-the-top weaponry” and much more. “Tough and sometimes hilarious decisions will have to be made along the way, either alone or in its two-player co-op mode”.
More About Death Road to Canada
“We believe the game is perfectly suited to be played in both the home and on the go,” said Kepa Auwae, Co-Founder of Rocketcat Games. “Single player is great of course, but the local co-op mode brings a slower, more tactical pace to the game. With the Nintendo Switch’s Joy Con controllers and the promise of couch play on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, we’re proud to share the console experience with players across the world.”
Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way. Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, the game features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat. A far cry from sunshine state at the end Route 66, Death Road To Canada is a desperate scramble to the promised land of Ontario.
