Independent publisher, UKIYO Publishing, in partnership with Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, are proud to announce that the randomly generated, zombie-filled road-trip. Death Road To Canada is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players will be able to take the highly esteemed, cadaverous journey from Florida to Ontario, soaking up its immaculately gruesome pixel-art take on the undead apocalypse.
Death Road To Canada tasks players with surviving its brutal, hyper-violent combat with over-the-top, looted weaponry. Scavenging the derelict environment, tough, sometimes hilarious decisions will have to be made along the way, either alone or in its two-player local co-op mode. Death Road To Canada will be available for $14.99, €14.99, £11.99 with a 20% launch discount during its first two weeks of sale.

“We’re thrilled to finally release Death Road To Canada for consoles,” said Kepa Auwae, Co-Founder of Rocketcat Games. “The game translates incredibly well to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It plays great, the pixel-art looks suitably blood-splattered and local co-op is blast. Onwards to Ontario!”
“We’re proud to have partnered with two of the most talented studios around, Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, to release Death Road To Canada for consoles,” said Paul Hann, Managing Director of Ukiyo Publishing. “I can’t wait for players to jump in attempt the grueling, gruesome trip to Canada.”
Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way. Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, Death Road To Canada features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat.
