After being delayed due to “tragic events in Toronto“, Ukiyo Publishing today announced that the new release date for Death Road to Canada will be May 8th, 2018. In partnership with Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, Death Road to Canada is a randomly generated, zombie filled road trip game where survival is key.
Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way. Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, Death Road To Canada features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat.
Death Road To Canada tasks players with surviving its brutal, hyper-violent combat with over-the-top, looted weaponry. Scavenging the derelict environment, tough, sometimes hilarious decisions will have to be made along the way, either alone or in its two-player local co-op mode. Death Road To Canada will be available for $14.99 with a 20% launch discount during its first two weeks of sale.
