Back at PAX West last year, when we still had conventions in person and didn’t need to wear masks 24/7, I got to play a cool game called No Straight Roads. I was drawn to it cause it was touted as a musical rhythm game, but that didn’t quite do it justice. It’s a really unique experience, with massive boss battles, a unique aesthetic and really rocking tunes. It’s pretty different from anything else I’ve played recently, and that instantly put it on my radar. Well, the good news is that as of today, we have a release date for No Straight Roads! It’s slated to rock out this August. So if you need a distraction from the humdrum reality we currently live in, this is a great excuse.

No Straight Roads | Robot

And if you’re the impatient sort, there’s a playable demo on the Epic storefront. But you can read more details about the announcement, as well as check out the newest trailer from BitSummit Gaiden, by reading the press release below!
