Road 96 Prequel Game Announced, Launches in April

This morning brings the announcement of Road 96: Mile 0, a new narrative game set before the events of the critically acclaimed Road 96.

If you haven’t played Road 96 yet, consider this a good reminder to get that done. This morning, DigixArt and Ravenscourt announced Road 96: Mile 0, a prequel game bringing a new story and characters, while sticking to what made the first game so compelling. Even better, you won’t have to wait long to play it, as it’s already been given an April 4th release date!

Channeling the same ‘90s vibes found in Road 96, today’s announcement trailer for Road 96: Mile 0 features the brand-new track “Land Locked Heart” by The Midnight.


Road 96: Mile 0 is set in White Sands, Petria´s only luxurious community, and takes place just before the life-shaping road trips of Road 96. Players will alternate between the roles of Zoe and Kaito, two teenagers with opposite backgrounds and beliefs.


Two teens, two worlds:

Fans of Road 96 will remember Zoe, one of the main characters of the original game. She comes from the rich side of White Sands and her father works for President Tyrak´s government as the Minister of Oil.


Kaito – a character from developer DigixArt’s first game, Lost in Harmony – on the other hand, was born in rough, impoverished Colton City. After moving with his family to get away from Colton City’s pollution and find new jobs, Kaito finds himself in White Sands as well. It’s been two years since this move and they are now close neighbors to the Tryak abode.


Intrigued by his dark demeanor, Zoe gets closer to Kaito and the two develop a strong friendship. This budding friendship with Kaito eventually exposes Zoe to disturbing truths about her country and even her own father. Through this new-found relationship, players will discover what made Zoe flee her home and the truth behind the 1986 Border Attack that sets off the events of Road 96.


“In Road 96 Mile 0 we wanted to show where Zoe is coming from and why she left her comfortable life, said Yoan Fanise CEO of DigixArt. “But we didn’t create Mile 0 in the conventional way. We went the crazy route, using metaphorical music sequences where you ride along on the beliefs and doubts of Zoe and Kaito. The funny part is that YOU choose how you want them to evolve.”

Road 96: Mile 0 is set to hit PlayStation 4|5, Xbox consoles, PC, and Nintendo Switch on April 4, 2023.
