Road Not Taken Ventures to PS4 August 5th

CEO, Spry Fox

Hi folks! We’re thrilled to announce the official release date of Road Not Taken! It’ll be coming to the Playstation 4 on August 5th, 2014 and the PS Vita later this Fall. To celebrate this announcement, we’ve put together a new trailer! This one is a bit, er, unusual. You might need to have lived through the late 80s or 90s to really get it. ;-)

If this is your first time reading about Road Not Taken, we’ve written a ton of blog posts about the game and it’s development. Some of our favorite posts are this one about our inspiration for the game and this one about the changes we’ve made in reaction to playtests.

Lastly, we’d also like to take this opportunity to share some free artwork with everyone, in celebration of our launch date announcement! Our lead artist Brent Kobayashi has whipped up some wallpapers to decorate your various and sundry devices. :-) If you love this art and haven’t already done so, check out Brent’s earlier post detailing his inspiration for the art of Road Not Taken.

Any info about the pricing?

This game looks so good. Do you have a price point yet?

How about some Vita-sized wallpaper since you’re bringing this game to the Vita?

Super excited for the game. This and Hohokum are two indies I’m pumped for. They both look great.

I have been so excited for this game, too bad it wont be on PS3 as well.

I advise everyone to go watch the GameSpot E3 Stage Demo for this. It’s hilarious watching the creator fail at his own game!

I don’t know how I feel about the game yet, but I loved this retro commercial. Lol The 90’s were pretty bad, but they provided a lot of great material for jokes.

PanTheMan16 said:

Great wallpapers, BTW, but you forgot links for 1920 x 1080. ;)

Etherealwalnut said:

Yesssss! I have been waiting for this. Soooo looking forward to the release! This looks even more addictive than Triple Town, which is going to be dangerous for me. :)

I’ve been so excited about this and even went out of my way to play it at PAX East. And yet, I never realized it wasn’t also going to be on PS3. Dang. Guess I won’t be buying it for awhile. Someday though, when I upgrade.

Chedderly said:

June 25th, 9:19 am

@TangoThief – it’ll be available on PC and Mac as well, via Steam. :-)

TangoThief said:

June 25th, 9:33 am

@Chedderly — Thanks! That’s a nice consolation. But I’ll probably hold off until I get a PS4–and I’m not regretting another reason to upgrade. I just haven’t yet exhausted the many awesome offerings on the PS3 yet. I only got mine this past Christmas after years of grad school eating up all my time and preventing me from playing any games at all. Even now, my job and family prevent me from playing enough that my (comparably short) backlog will likely keep me entertained for a year or two. Just Skyrim will likely occupy me for the whole summer or more.

I guess that’s the problem of being the last to the party–so much to catch up on, and your secret crush is already in another man’s arms.

Holy lord, that was hilarious. It made my entire morning, thanks.

This commercial is almost as awesome as the one that came out for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

I mean, if you’re not gonna say a price, can you confirm or deny it’ll be a PS+ game? But yeah, FINALLY, one of my most anticipated games.

Where are you getting your information? The July PS Plus update isn’t up yet.

technidave said:

June 25th, 11:16 am

So local 2 player confirmed? Because if not, this video is very misleading.

Etherealwalnut said:

He is getting it from the EU PS Plus update. I don’t know why he is posting it here. Our list of games often differ, and nothing has been confirmed for our region.

Destructoid appears to have gotten info on the NA games a day early. Check the site, they have an article about it.

xeballzak said:

June 25th, 1:32 pm

for the love of god.are we ever gunna get games on the ps4 that dont look like they belong on the vita.bless you guys who make these and i hope you make good money.but dam would love to see somethin that actualy utilizes the power of this system

MakoSoul said:

June 25th, 1:34 pm

@xeballzak Last time I checked there were plenty of games that capture the power of the PS4. However, every game doesn’t need to look as awesome as Infarmous: SS, Killzone or Watch Dogs in order to be fun.

Etherealwalnut said:

June 25th, 1:40 pm

Ah, I see. That list might be correct. Sounds great if it is. However, I take all news with a grain of salt until I hear something official :) But props to you if it is right.

Kai_Shenlong said:

June 25th, 2:06 pm


Spot on. The July Preview is up and you nailed it 6 for 6. I’m happy with.

nosforatu75 said:

June 25th, 2:24 pm

Excellent. I understand. Glad it was correct.

SohRonery said:

June 25th, 5:26 pm

Man, can’t wait for the Vita release of this game. Good to know that it is in the work and somewhat has a release window. Can we get some vita-sized wallpaper?

Etherealwalnut said:

June 25th, 8:44 pm

Yep, see that it is official now, Nosforatu.. Awesome line up. Very happy with it. Sorry not much is exciting you about it this time, but I hope August has some more titles to your liking. :)

Einhander138 said:

I’ll happily buy it – on disc.

No physical media – NO SALE.

Elvick_ said:

June 25th, 11:47 pm

Bah, I wanted it on my Vita more than PS4. And no, remote play isn’t the same thing so no one reply with that. (I like remote play and use it, but I’d not choose that over native ports ever)

@32: it’s a digital game. You think they’re going to put a $15ish game at retail? Get outta here.

Elvick_ said:

June 25th, 11:50 pm

Awesome trailer btw

PanTheMan16 said:

@Elvick: What, no shooing this time?

Amnalehu said:

June 26th, 7:56 am

That trailer is so funny! I think this game has a lot more than 300 colors! I’m really looking forward to downloading this. Thank goodness I updated my hard drive to a TB.

Welmosca said:

This should be on PS3 too,well at least its coming to Vita later…..only PS4 bugs me….game seems promising and fun.Oh well gotta wait for that Vita version.

BTW the 5th wallpaper is fantastic…great idea.
