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.”

About This Game

Assume the role of Sunny on the road trip of a lifetime with her Aunt Guu Ma. Drive and maintain your dilapidated old car as you journey through 1990s Guangdong, China, meeting with relatives and rekindling relationships to save your family restaurant.

Drive across China in the beloved but weathered family car, ‘Sandy’. Take care of your tyres, fuel consumption and engine condition as you navigate the beautiful province of Guangdong. An epic journey in such an old car isn’t going to be easy – be prepared to take a look under the hood. Add oil, manage petrol, maintain the engine and build a stock of useful parts to avoid calling out the mechanic.

Play as Sunny, a 23-year-old art graduate, as she joins 68-year-old aunt Guu Ma on a road trip to rekindle her family restaurant. Unexpectedly inheriting her family’s restaurant, Sunny is tasked with reigniting relationships, and establishing her place in the family, on her quest to secure and recreate secret recipes.

Navigate narrative puzzles and moral choices as you select dialogue and shape Sunny’s character. Sunny and Guu Ma’s relationship will be tested and evolve throughout a road trip that will change both of their lives.
