Publisher Annapurna Interactive and developer The Fullbright Company announced Open Roads for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. It will launch in 2021.

View the teaser trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

One fine fall day, Tess Devine and her mother, Opal, discover a cache of old notes and letters carefully stashed away in the attic of their house. Hints of deep-rooted family secrets, decades-old burglaries, a lost treasure somewhere near the Canadian border… What they uncover suggests a much darker mystery, best left well enough alone.

But that’s not going to happen.

In Open Roads, Tess and Opal embark on a road trip adventure to explore a series of long-abandoned family properties, unearthing the past. They’ll search the ruins of these places that hold buried memories, things Opal has tried for years to forget. And in this search, they’ll discover not just the truth they’ve been seeking, but each other.

Key Features:

  • Experience the story of Open Roads as 16-year-old Tess Devine, on a road trip with her mother to discover what has been left behind in evocative places forgotten to time.
  • Bask in classic road trip vibes as you chill in the car en route to your next destination, fiddling with the radio and chatting with your mom.
  • A groundbreaking art style melds detailed first-person environments with beautifully hand-animated characters, bringing the adventure to life.
  • A unique and engaging interactive dialogue system moves the narrative along, exposing character flaws, secrets, and buried truths.
  • A mother-daughter road trip adventure from Fullbright, the award-winning creators of acclaimed story games Gone Home and Tacoma.

When I see Annapurna I know it’s a good game. Looking forward to learn more about it.

THIS is the kind of game Fullbright does best, IMO! Tacoma just had so many characters for such a short game that it simply couldn't retain the same intimate feel of their real masterpiece, Gone Home. THIS recaptures it for me, even just in the trailer! I like the mother-daughter story set-up here. My relationship with my mom was complicated, but got to be fairly close when she was alive. This is a game I definitely want to play.
