Reviews

“That narrative setting you as an outlaw, on the run from The Law, inspired by ‘70s road movies. And damn, it looks so good in black and white. I’m super-intrigued to find out how the storytelling works here, especially as they drop genres like “rogue-like” and themes like “moral choices”. And resource management? I think this could be seriously good.”
Kotaku

“You'll start each playthrough by answering questions about your vigilante driver and why they're on the run. That'll influence what kind of radio chatter you hear as you drive along, because apparently your antics are all over the airwaves. There's a lot of both—dangerous driving and radio commentary—down here in its announcement trailer.”

About This Game


Heading Out is a road-movie inspired racing game mixed with an immersive narration, character creator and resource management.

We aim to recreate the spirit of cult American road-movies from the past. Such as Vanishing Point, Two-Lane Blacktop and Thelma & Louise.

Drive through the American West

Welcome to the mythical American West. You’re a vigilante driving across the country in a muscle car. How fast can you go coast to coast? Who or what are you running from? Are you looking for an adventure? Or do you want to get lost on the highways carved in vast American plains?

Beautiful cars, hi-octane races and the joy of the drive

Hop into a classic muscle car, tune in to a great Americana soundtrack and go on a drive through the American West. Run from the police, chase other drivers, maneuver in traffic, break through a sandstorm, contemplate views during a peaceful night ride through the desert… And most of all: enjoy the ride!

Create your own hero & story

You’re the Driver . Using a deep but easy-to-manage character creator, the player will answer questions about their fears, dreams and ambitions. What’s your motivation? Why are you on the run? Who’s chasing you? Choices made in the character creator determine what the player hears on the radio. Because you’re making headlines and everyone is talking about you!


Meaningful choices and unique adventure

Choose your path across America. Keep an eye on your fuel meter, car condition and wanted level. Think strategically. Study the map. Meet mysterious travelers, make interesting choices and discover fascinating sites.

Will you help a stranger? Will you leave your past in the dust? Will you take up the challenge to a duel on the blacktop? Build a legend that is uniquely yours.

Rogue-like structure, infinite replayability potential

Every time you click New Story, a new adventure is created. You can become someone completely different, encounter new events and make different, meaningful choices. After completing a run, you can immortalize your adventure and share it with other players!
