Posted on December 6, 2023 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Open Roads, which was first announced three years ago, has now been confirmed for Switch. We also have a final release date of February 22, 2024.
Open Roads is a road trip adventure game. It’s being made by the same folks as Gone Home, though Fullbright co-founder Steve Gaynor is no longer involved and the group is now known as “The Open Roads Team”.
Information about the game is included in the following overview:
One fine fall day, Tess Devine and her mother, Opal, discover a cache of old notes and letters carefully stashed away in the attic of their house. Hints of deep-rooted family secrets, decades-old burglaries, a lost treasure somewhere near the Canadian border… What they uncover suggests a much darker mystery, best left well enough alone.
But that’s not going to happen.
In Open Roads, Tess and Opal embark on a road trip adventure to explore a series of long-abandoned family properties, unearthing the past. They’ll search the ruins of these places that hold buried memories, things Opal has tried for years to forget. And in this search, they’ll discover not just the truth they’ve been seeking, but each other.
Featuring star performances by Keri Russell (The Americans, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker) and Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart, Uncharted 4).
