What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a vision for the experience we want to create. However, engaging with the community and gathering feedback is vital in making sure that players love the game as much as we already do. Road to Guangdong has driving, maintenance and repair mechanics, along with a rich interactive story. We will be listening carefully to our players’ feedback on each of these elements and how they come together to create a rewarding game experience, ensuring that Road to Guangdong exceeds the high standards our players rightly expect.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Road to Guangdong to be in Early Access for 2-3 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We want to gather feedback from our players to help us fine tune the driving experience, traffic and repair systems. However, most of our time will be spent creating locations and evolving the story, bringing Sunny and Guu Ma’s journey to a fulfilling conclusion.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access launch version represents the first chapter of Sunny and Guu Ma’s story; setting the scene for the road trip, and the beginning their journey together. Players will need to carefully maintain the aging but beloved family car, driving across the Guangdong province and undertaking family quests to unlock the first of the relative’s recipes.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Road to Guangdong’s price will increase throughout Early Access and/or at full launch. Any price increases will be communicated with the community before they happen.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be regularly looking for suggestions and feedback on the game throughout Early Access and will be very active on the Steam forums, social media and Discord.”

UPDATE NOW LIVE - Car Repair Update



Hello all,

Road to Guangdong has just received an update! The focus is on making the breaking down and repairing elements of the game more seamless and feel less like a set of menus. Now, when checking your car, there's no loading screen, and instead of repairing and walking around the car in the manual-like mode, you now walk around the car out on the road itself.



We've also tweaked the procedural generation of the tea fields and industrial plane environments in order to make the roads more interesting to drive along!

This is just the beginning of our continued Early Access support and updates for Road to Guangdong, and we will be launching more updates very soon.

Take a look at the following forum post to find out more on our immediate update plans: https://steamcommunity.com/app/995840/discussions/1/1638661595049951791/

Full Patch Notes
  • Updated 1st stage of tutorial - latest tutorial is now localised into all supported languages
  • Tweaked car handling/setup - now has 4 gears, slightly higher engine power and the suspension is now a little more "rolly" (like an old car would be)
  • Tweaked the procedural generation settings for "tea fields" and "industrial plane" road types to make them more interesting to drive along
  • Minor tweaks to AI
  • Repair Anywhere™! No need to load into repair mode any more.
  • Repair mode: camera tweaked to be slightly further from the car
  • Repair mode: haynes-o-vision shader disabled unless a mechanic is repairing for you
  • Fixed miscellaneous (& mostly invisible!) bugs and/or typos



Thanks,
The Road to Guangdong Team

First Update Now Live! Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge Added



Hello all,

We're delighted to announce that the first ever Road to Guangdong update is here, which introduces an engine temperature indicator gauge on the car dashboard.

The engine coolant temperature gauge is now active on the dashboard.

This important gauge gives you valuable information in how hot your engine is getting. If the temperature is rising you are probably over revving the engine and causing wear and tear.

We know we have lots of feedback to address, so expect more updates next week! You can find a list of our priorities for the next few weeks here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/995840/discussions/1/1638661595049951791/

Thank you all for your support.

About This Game

Your family’s cherished restaurant is struggling and it’s down to you to ride to the rescue. But your trusty old car, Sandy, won’t survive the road trip without your expertise behind the wheel.

Only a steady hand and a sharp eye will ensure she makes it to your destination. So slip into the driving seat and buckle up for the adventure of a lifetime, set against the beautiful backdrop of 1990s Guangdong.
A treasured part of your family for longer than you can remember, Sandy has carried your loved ones through many a crisis. But your beloved car has seen better days and she’s going to need a helping hand to respond to this latest emergency.

Only by keeping tabs on your fuel consumption, tyre wear and engine condition will you keep Sandy purring as you travel across the wide expanses of China’s most populous region in search of help.


The road ahead is long and it’s going to take more than careful driving to keep Sandy on the move. The only way you’ll ensure she has everything she needs to complete your mission is by taking regular checks under the bonnet. Keep the mechanics away by topping up oil and fuel levels and repairing and replacing worn out parts, from oil filters to fan belts.


As Sunny, a young art graduate and recent inheritor of the struggling family restaurant, you join your Aunt Guu Ma on a mission to revive the once-thriving business. Separated by generations, your relationship with your ageing aunt will be truly tested as your road trip turns into a journey of discovery.

Only by navigating those bumps in the road, and making tough choices as you encounter other relatives, will you shape Sunny’s character, establish her position in the family and discover secrets that could save the restaurant.
