Gone Home and Tacoma dev reveals mother-daughter road trip adventure Open Roads

Annapurna Interactive on publishing duties.

Fullbright, the developer behind acclaimed narrative adventures Gone Home and Tacoma, has unveiled its latest offering, Open Roads.

"One fine fall day," explains Open Roads' newly launched Steam page, "Tess Devine and her mother, Opal, discover a cache of old notes and letters carefully stashed away in the attic of their house. Hints of deep-rooted family secrets, decades-old burglaries, a lost treasure somewhere near the Canadian border... What they uncover suggests a much darker mystery, best left well enough alone. But that's not going to happen."

The ensuing adventure follows 16-year-old Tess and mother Opal - voiced by Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart) and Keri Russell (The Americans) respectively - as they explore a series of evocative, long-abandoned family properties in search of answers. Between each destination, players can "bask in classic road trip vibes", fiddling with the radio and conversing with mum.

Open Roads teaser trailer.

As hinted at in the reveal trailer above, it's all presented with a striking autumnal art style that blends detailed first-person environments, rendered in full 3D, with hand-animated characters.

There's no word yet on when Open Roads might arrive, but it's coming to PC and currently unspecified consoles, and is being published by the ever-reliable Annapurna Interactive.
