Final Fantasy 15 designer’s music adventure No Straight Roads delayed to August •

But there’s a demo on the Epic Store.

No Straight Roads, the flamboyant music-based action-adventure from Final Fantasy 15 lead game designer Wan Hazmer, has received a last-minute delay and is now due to arrive on Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One on 25th August.

No Straight Roads is the work of Hazmer’s studio Metronomik, where it’s been in development for around three years, and was originally set to release tomorrow, 30th June on all platforms.

There’s been no explanation from Metronomik or publisher Sold Out as to why it’s been pushed back by two months at the eleventh hour, but PC players can alleviate the wait somewhat thanks to a new demo now available on the Epic Games Store (where it appears to be a PC exclusive).

If you’re unfamiliar with No Straight Roads, it’s a sort of rhythmic, music-driven action-platformer with two playable characters in the form of indie rock band members Mayday & Zuke. Each has their own unique weapons and attacks that they’ll need to deploy in order to stage a musical revolution against the evil EDM empire No Straight Roads.

Eurogamer’s Martin Robinson was impressed with Metronomik’s effort when he took an early look last year, describing it as “intoxicating mix” of inspirations, that was “part Psychonauts, part Jet Set Radio, part Space Channel 5”.
