Your family’s cherished restaurant is struggling and it’s down to you to ride to the rescue. But your trusty old car, Sandy, won’t survive the road trip without your expertise behind the wheel.

Only a steady hand and a sharp eye will ensure she makes it to your destination. So slip into the driving seat and buckle up for the adventure of a lifetime, set against the beautiful backdrop of 1990s Guangdong.

A treasured part of your family for longer than you can remember, Sandy has carried your loved ones through many a crisis. But your beloved car has seen better days and she’s going to need a helping hand to respond to this latest emergency.

Only by keeping tabs on your fuel consumption, tyre wear and engine condition will you keep Sandy purring as you travel across the wide expanses of China’s most populous region in search of help.

The road ahead is long and it’s going to take more than careful driving to keep Sandy on the move. The only way you’ll ensure she has everything she needs to complete your mission is by taking regular checks under the bonnet. Keep the mechanics away by topping up oil and fuel levels and repairing and replacing worn out parts, from oil filters to fan belts.

As Sunny, a young art graduate and recent inheritor of the struggling family restaurant, you join your Aunt Guu Ma on a mission to revive the once-thriving business. Separated by generations, your relationship with your ageing aunt will be truly tested as your road trip turns into a journey of discovery.

Only by navigating those bumps in the road, and making tough choices as you encounter other relatives, will you shape Sunny’s character, establish her position in the family and discover secrets that could save the restaurant.

Hello all,

We have just made live a game changing update which overhauls the way Road to Guangdong's vehicle wear and damage systems work. These changes mean that Sandy will now breakdown more often, creating a more direct connection between you, the player, and Sandy.

If you're yet to pick up Road to Guangdong, you can do so now at a great price in the Steam Summer Sale!





Major New Content and Adjustments

  • Major overhaul of the vehicle wear and damage systems
  • Added concept of "quality" to all vehicle components
  • Quality affects both wear and damage
  • Wear is based on mechanical wear & varies from component to component
  • Primary drivers are usually a combination of: engine revs, coolant temp, oil level, & part quality
  • Damage is based on a statistical model of mechanical failures when the components are under stress
  • High revs and engine temperature increases the likelihood of serious damage to components
  • Lower quality parts are more likely to take random damage, and have a higher maximum random damage
  • To balance this and account for planned future improvements in the game flow between story sections and driving sections we...
  • Increased starting money by 300
  • Save games from the previous version should get 300 added to the saved balance, but we still advise starting a fresh game
  • Each completed story will now gift a 10l can of petrol, a 3l bottle of oil, and 150 money
  • Cost of being recovered to a garage has been reduced to 75

General Advice on New Wear and Tear Systems

  • Be cautious, try to keep the engine temperature low
  • Higher quality components will generally last longer
  • Don't be afraid to use scrap parts

General Polish and Improvement

  • Adjusted gear ratios to get approx. 2500 revs at cruising speed of 40 in 3rd gear, 60 in 4th
  • Tweaked the analogue steering sensitivity curves to be less twitchy on medium bends
  • Improved clarity of colours on the health bars in the repair & garage UIs
  • Increased range of camera look in repair mode to feel less restrictive
  • Tweaked AI driving speeds to account for the constraints of the new wear & damage model
  • Other minor things here and there

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed several (unreported!) control bugs which were hangovers from prototype builds
  • Various other lesser bugfixes



Thanks,
The Road to Guangdong Team
