No Straight Roads Gets A New Release Date And A Demo On The Epic Games Store

Indie rhythm-action game No Straight Roads was originally slated for a June 30 release this year, but as recently as a month ago developer Metronomik announced that the game’s release would be pushed back slightly due to complications around COVID-19. Now, we can happily report that the game has a new release date of August 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (on Epic Games Store).

The almost two-month delay will most certainly be worth the wait, as we recently had the opportunity to go hands-on with a small portion of the game and came away suitably impressed. Have a read of our impressions right here.

On top of the release date, it was also announced that the game would be getting a free playable demo on the Epic Games Store on it’s original release date of June 30 – which is now! So what are you waiting for? Head on over there, download and play it and let us know what you think in the comments below or over on our social pages.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
