Excalibur Games has announced that its brand-new story-rich management game, Road to Guangdong, will release on Xbox One in 2019. Watch the Xbox One announcement trailer here.
The game will make its debut on PC on 16 May 2019 and will then arrive on Xbox One later in 2019.
Join Sunny and Guu Ma on the journey of a life time, as they travel across China in their aging but beloved family car. Can they maintain their beloved car and overcome their personal history to save the 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.
The game is filled with visual charm and personality, combining bold colours with a low poly art style. The visuals are underscored by a score which evokes the 90s setting and explores the tensions that exist between tradition and modernisation – themes which are at the heart of Sunny and Guu Ma’s story.
