Independent publisher, UKIYO Publishing, in partnership with Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, announced that the randomly generated, zombie-filled road-trip. Death Road To Canada will launch on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 25, 2018. Players will be able to take the highly esteemed, cadaverous journey from Florida to Ontario, soaking up its immaculately gruesome pixel-art take on the undead apocalypse.
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.
“We’re thrilled to announce the console release date for Death Road To Canada,” said Kepa Auwae, Co-Founder of Rocketcat Games. “We’ve been hard at work on the ports and we can’t wait for players to try and outrun our hordes of pixelated zombie. As far as we know, this is the first time console players have been tasked with escaping to Canada.”
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.
