Road 96

Road 96 is a 2021 video game developed and published by French studio DigixArt as part of the OMEN Presents programme in collaboration with HP Inc.,[1] with additional publishing support by Plug In Digital.[2] The game follows several teenage hitchhikers as they attempt to flee from the nation of Petria.[3] Featuring a tyrannical dictatorship in Petria, the game lets the player choose either to influence the election or to focus on crossing the border.[4] The player character meets seven non-player characters across each playthrough, with procedurally generated interactions.[5] The game was inspired by different works of fiction, from The Goonies and Porco Rosso. A test given to the player allowing them to flee to work offshore was based on real-world North Korean exams.[6]
