Boss Battle Records have released the soundtrack to the highly anticipated No Straight Roads video game. The soundtrack release coincides with the game’s global release on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Directed by Wan Hazmer, lead game designer of Final Fantasy XV, and Daim Dziauddin, concept artist of Street Fighter V, Metronomik’s No Straight Roads is an action-adventure game that mashes together rhythm-infused combat with a vibrant offbeat world and a killer soundtrack. The game so far has been presented at the Tokyo Game Show, Paris Games Week and was awarded with the Best Audio Award at Taipei Game Show’s Taipei Indie Game Award.
No Straight Roads is created with two goals in mind: to reinforce the role of audio in a video game without turning it into a rhythm game, and to tell a story about different musical ideals through powerful visual elements.
The incredible soundtrack has already resonated with fans, with singles ‘vs. SAYU’ and ‘vs. DJ Subatomic Supernova’ already amassing millions of streams across digital services.
Your music can change the world in No Straight Roads. With the power of music, you can transform certain objects into weapons. Your performance in the game will also bring about changes in the game’s music: a dynamic transition between Rock and Electronic Dance Music.
