Malaysia-Made No Straight Roads To Start Rockin’ This June

Malaysian developer Metronomik has finally announced the release date of the most highly-anticipated Malaysian-made game after years of hype. No Straight Roads is slated to release for the PS4 and PC (exclusively on Epic Games Store) on 30 June 2020.

Metronomik CEO Wan Hazmer (former Lead Game Designer for Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV) announced the news via PlayStation Blog and the official Twitter accounts for No Straight Roads.

They also shared the details for the No Straight Roads Collector’s Edition, which includes the following additional exclusive items:

  • A 10-track vinyl record featuring an awesome selection of tracks from the game’s OST.
  • A 64-page The Art of No Straight Roads artbook featuring never-before-seen artwork.
  • A set of collectible No Straight Roads drumsticks, so you can jam out to NSR’s music at home.

The No Straight Roads Collector’s Edition (and Standard Edition; Physical and Digital for PS4, Digital-only for PC) are already available to pre-order now. On the Epic Games Store, it’s priced at US$18.99 (or roughly RM82+). The PS4 version is currently unknown at the time of writing.

No Straight Roads is an action-adventure game that mashes together rhythm-infused combat with a vibrant offbeat world and a killer soundtrack. Although music plays a central role in the game, it’s not a conventional rhythm-action game. However, listening to the music can be critical to mastering the combat.

What this means is that enemies will attack according to the beat of the music. Players can then attack, parry, jump and move freely in third-person perspective while listening out for special cues to dodge enemy attacks.

The game pits two passionate indie rock band members, Mayday and Zuke, against EDM empire NSR, whose tight grip on Vinyl City is smothering the expression of other music genres. Playing as Mayday and Zuke, it’s up to you to lead the musical revolution in Vinyl City and take the fight back against NSR’s musical megastars.

It’s sort of like the plot of Trolls World Tour, but with rock being the good guys instead. According Wan Hazmer, Metronomik has been working with famous artists like James Landino, Andy Tunstall, Funk Fiction, Masahiro “Godspeed” Aoki, Az Samad, Clyde, and the game’s own music director Falk Au Yeong.

You can even listen to one of the tracks from No Straight Roads right now.

Thanks to those collaborations, players can look forward to an incredible soundtrack that shifts between EDM and rock as they progress throughout each stage. In addition, take a look at 1010, a superstar boy band from No Straight Roads, whom players will probably be going up against in an epic rock vs pop battle.
