During last night’s The Game Awards 2020, Anapurna Interactive and Fullbright announced a new mother-daughter narrative adventure called Open Roads. The game will star the voice talents of Golden Globe winner Keri Russell and Golden Globe nominee Kaitlyn Dever. It is expected to debut for consoles and PC in 2021.
Players will experience the story as 16-year-old Tess Devine, on a road trip with her mother, Opal, to discover what has been left behind in evocative places forgotten to time. Together, they’ll explore a series of long-abandoned family properties, unearthing a mystery much darker than either of them imagined. Opal and Tess’s relationship has never been easy; in their search, they’ll discover not just the truth they’ve been seeking, but each other. Kaitlyn Dever voices the role of Tess, and Keri Russell voices the role of her mother, Opal.
The game features a groundbreaking art style, melding detailed first-person environments with beautifully hand-animated characters, bringing the adventure to life. Players will bask in classic road trip vibes, chilling in the car en route to the next destination, fiddling with the radio, and chatting with Tess’ mom, Opal. The game utilizes a unique and engaging interactive dialogue system that moves the narrative along, exposing character flaws, secrets, and buried truths.
