Wan Hazmer, one of the lead designers on Final Fantasy XV and Daim Dziauddin, concept artist on Street Fighter V have created a new studio; Metronomik.
The studio’s first game is called No Straight Roads and it’s a music-based action game coming to PC and PS4. Publisher Sold Out recently partnered with Metronomik to release a physical version of the game on PS4.
Both PC and PS4 will receive digital versions of the game.
No Straight Roads
In No Straight Roads, players will control Mayday and Zuke, two members of Bunk Bed Junction. This indie rock band is fighting against the NSR mega-corp.
NSR is an EDM empire who has taken control of Vinyl City and banned all other music.
Players will need to explore Vinyl City, visit its various districts, use rock to transform objects into weapons and fight massive bosses. It’s almost like 2112 the game, with a hint of Brutal Legend.
Wan Hazmer, CEO of Metronomik, said;
Partnering with Sold Out has given us the opportunity to turn the volume up to 11 on NO STRAIGHT ROADS, and we’re thrilled to also release a physical edition.
Pushing the game to early 2020 wasn’t an easy decision, but the extra time will let us fully deliver on our vision for NO STRAIGHT ROADS while sticking to our studio’s core values of providing a friendly, healthy workplace.
We’re so proud of everyone on the team for what they’ve achieved so far, and we can’t wait to bring Vinyl City to life…!
No Straight Roads won Best Indie Project at the 2019 Unreal Open Day in Shangai and Best Audio at the 2019 Taipei Game Show.
It will be available on PS4 and PC in early 2020.
