Road 96 is a fascinating and frequently tense adventure that manages to keep its story on track despite the odd bump in the road.

A road movie told in multiple border crossings and a narrative game to remember.

A beautifully structured, poignant, procedurally generated road movie, that's packed with character and intelligence.

Yet, I can’t help but feel entranced by Road 96’s framework; the depiction of a journey as being a bunch of moments. Moments where you dig into a character’s psyche or just have fun playing air hockey. It’s lightweight, effective, and I can’t think of another place where it’s this well-executed. If you’re willing to stomach the rough patches and politics, there’s a rich game within. One that explores how people affect and are affected by the world. Personally, I think it’s worth the trip.
