It’s been quite a while since we last covered Death Road to Canada, a silly little “road-trip simulator”, where you journey north of the American border fighting off hordes of zombies to reach your friendly northern neighbor—which also happens to be where I reside! It’s been almost two and a half years since developer Rocketcat Games said it would be released (they anticipated November 2013 on their Kickstarter), but it’s finally coming out next month.
There’s been plenty of moaning, grumbling and bitching in the Kickstarter comments section—not without reason—but Rocketcat has been keeping up with the majority of them, even as they work frantically to have the final game ready for distribution. They’ve also been keeping backers updated with regular posts, listing tons of bugs they’ve patched up in the game, while also adding couch co-op, “rare/secret locations”, and other features which can be found on the Kickstarter page. On April 9th, they posted their biggest update yet, which must provide a dose of relief for disgruntled backers: the game is set to come out in late May.
There are some backers who paid over $30 to help see Death Road to Canada come to life, and they received their digital copy of the game around a year ago, so if you want to see gameplay you can find some Twitch streamers in the Kickstarter comments section. The rest of us will have to wait for the game’s release later next month, and here’s to hoping it won’t be delayed yet again.
