Road 96 developer DigixArt has announced a prequel to the branching narrative adventure game. Road 96: Mile 0 will release on April 4th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC. Check out the reveal trailer below.
The story focuses on two characters – Zoe from Road 96, who leads a rich lifestyle thanks to her father working as the Minister of Oil and Kaito from Lost in Harmony, born in the poorer Colton City. The two become close, and eventually, Zoe discovers some unpleasant details about the country and her father.
In addition to showcasing why Zoe left her home, Mile 0 will also detail events that led to Road 96. In a unique twist, Zoe and Kaito have inner worlds that manifest as rhythm-based sections (not unlike Sayonara Wild Heart) that will affect their growth.
DigixArt CEO Yoan Fanise said, “In Road 96: Mile 0, we wanted to show where Zoe is coming from and why she left her comfortable life. But we didn’t create Mile 0 in a conventional way. We went the crazy route, using metaphorical music sequences where you ride along on the beliefs and doubts of Zoe and Kaito. The funny part is that YOU choose how you want them to evolve.”
Stay tuned for more details on the prequel in the coming months.
