No Straight Roads

System: Switch
Release date: August 25, 2020
Developer: Metronomik
Publisher: Sold Out


No Straight Roads is a prime example of a game that is more than the sum of its parts. Its gameplay may be decent at best for the most part, but its constant explosion of beautiful art, vibrant colors, and glorious music make it an overall unforgettable experience that needs to be played firsthand to be fully appreciated. This makes it all the more unfortunate that its aesthetics are heavily compromised in its Switch version, sullying its single greatest selling point.

No Straight Roads, the music-based action-adventure title from publisher Sold Out and developer Metronomik is out today on Switch. Check out some gameplay below.
