Theale, UK – 26 January, 2023: DigixArt and Ravenscourt are thrilled to unveil Road 96: Mile 0, a narrative adventure game with a musical component and the prequel of the critically acclaimed Road 96.

The game is due to release on April 4th on digital platforms across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC and Switch.

“Land Locked Heart” the brand new single from American synth band The Midnight – which features in the reveal trailer and brings a 90s vibes to this lively game – will be released soon on Spotify.

Watch the trailer here.

Road 96: Mile 0 is set in White Sands– Petria’s only luxurious community – and takes place just before the road trip which started in the summer of 1996. Players will alternate between the roles of Zoe and Kaito, two teenagers with opposite backgrounds and beliefs.

Two teens, two worlds

Former Road 96 players will remember Zoe, one of the main characters of the game. She comes from the rich side of the city and her father works for President Tyrak´s government as the Minister of Oil.

Born in the dangerous and dark Colton City, Kaito – a character from Lost in Harmony – has moved with his parents to the rich condominium of White Sands to find work and escape the city’s pollution. It’s been two years and they now live where Tyrak and the city’s VIPs reside.

Intrigued by his darkness, Zoe gets closer to Kaito and the pair become good friends. Spending time with him will lead her to uncover disturbing truths about her country and even her own father.

Do you want to find out what made Zoe flee her home? What really happened in 1986 during the Border Attack?

Soon this friendship will be put to the test. How will it impact the fate of their story? Will they remain friends?

Yoan Fanise, CEO of DigixArt says, “In Road 96: Mile 0, we wanted to show where Zoe comes from and why she left her comfortable life. But we didn’t make it the conventional way, we went the crazy road, with metaphorical music sequences where you ride through the beliefs and doubts of Zoe and Kaito. The interesting part is that YOU choose how you want them to evolve.”

Zoe and Kaito´s inner worlds

Explore the two characters' inner worlds. Even though the narrative segment is the backbone of Road 96: Mile 0, Zoe and Kaito will skate through psychedelic musical rides. These imaginary trips use a unique mix of rhythm-based gameplay and narrative choices, allowing the players to influence and shape their emotional journey.

The Midnight

The colourful and retro Land Locked Heart from The Midnight – the American synthwave band - will be released soon. This is the first single from the Road 96: Mile 0 soundtrack which reinforces the emotional experience for players.

“This song is about the paradox of coming home. Even though it's where you were formed and where the evidence of the origin story is all around, there comes a time when it no longer feels like home. Eventually it feels like a place you must escape from, or be destined to continue in a story that isn't yours. We’re excited to see the song come to life in Road 96: Mile 0,” says The Midnight.

Road 96: Mile 0 is a narrative adventure game with a musical component developed by DigixArt and published by Ravenscourt launching on digital platforms on April 4th.


Happy Gaming!

According to 12,000 reviews Road 96 is a VERY good game. Hopefully this prequel will rate the same. Right now Road 96 is on sale until Monday 1pm eastern. You can get it for $8 - 60% off. The Road 96 Hitchhiker Bundle offers a great deal at $12 which is still less then Road 96 by itself not on sale. The bundle gives you, what seems to be, 2 very nice DLC's :

1. Road 96: Prologue eBook - A game in itself taking place 10 years before the events of the game. You do not need to play Road 96 to appreciate the book, or vice-versa, but the two bodies or work align, and they complement one another.

2. Road 96: Documentary - This documentary narrates the creative trip that French studio DigixArt went through during the 3 years of the development of Road 96. Meet the team and the challenges their talented minds faced at each stage of the production, and how they found the solutions that made the game grow and evolve to what the World can enjoy today.

Well thanks to Ana announcing this Road 96 Prequel I took another good look at Road 96 and this time it sold me, the bundle. I had been eyeballing this game off and on since its release. I had to check my inventories to see if I might of already grabbed it. Well I hadn't

Road 96 is not on sale at GOG

This prequel looks and sounds promising. I definately am a fan of that music

Thank you Ana!
