About This Game

It's not about the destination, it's about the journey.
Heading Out is an immersive driving game meets visual novel passionately inspired by cult classic road movies.
Escape your fears by taking off down American highways on an emotional trip of discovery.


Your Adventure - What's your motivation?
The fears, dreams, ambitions and choices of your driver pave the road ahead so each run is a unique combination of races, chases, hazards and colorful characters.

Your Path - Will you, or won't you?
Each strategic decision impacts a variety of systems including who you meet along the way, what radio hosts say about you, fuel consumption, car condition and wanted level.

Your Legend - When and where does it end?
An eclectic Americana soundtrack backs each road trip playthrough as your experience expands across the unpredictable western frontier.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

The story of Heading Out addresses racism, mental health (anxiety, depression), inequality, and other social issues. There is no graphic nudity, sex scenes, or violence in the game, but the adult characters sometimes talk about intimacy, relationship violence, and - very rarely - sexual violence. These conversations are not graphic. One of the game's villains uses hate speech against minorities. Most adult characters use vulgar language. The game is recommended for mature audiences.
