The lights are on
Spry Fox's roguelike-puzzle hybrid has a release date and humorous new trailer straight out of the 90's. The tailer tells the story of two kids bored with a first-person shooter who are saved by Road Not Taken.
Road Not Taken takes the classic spin of procedurally generated worlds and perma-death known to roguelikes and adds interesting puzzle components and narrative angles. In order to save the people from your town, you must navigate the woods using your powers and energy to solve puzzles. If you run out of energy, you die. The story will take place over a span of many years and promises to show your interactions with your fellow townsfolk change over time.
