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.

Merece una mención especial, si le miráis los video de youtube os daréis cuenta de la calidad del sonido. En este artículo en PlayStation Blog USA hablan de como se ha trabajado el audio del juego:

We recently added the first batch of sounds to Road Not Taken, and the team got really excited, like the game was finally coming together! It’s funny because it was such a small thing in relation to the huge amount of work that has already gone into the game, but it really highlights the difference sound can make in the way we experience things.

The world of Road Not Taken is made up of magical and natural surroundings. That makes me happy, because even though I love the bleeps and bloops you can get from synthesis, my favourite way to make sounds is from scratch like a foley artist.

It just so happens that I started working on the RNT audio catalogue in the autumn, right when there were piles of dried leaves everywhere – perfect! I brought a bucket of them inside and rustled them, crunched and dropped them… my studio was a mess! Also, if you listen closely to the end of the second RNT teaser, you can hear some percussion that was made from dry sticks. At the time I was at a cottage on vacation with my family, so I used a makeshift set-up to build that sample instrument. I expect that you’ll hear it again.

Crafting the amazing audio of Road Not Taken on PS4 & PS Vita
