Lambs on the Road is an episodic puzzle game after where trial and error is the key to progress this short episode. Based on the book The Road” by Cormac McCarthy.
You take on the role of John in a post apocalyptic world where only the strong or the crazed survive. John is trying to find his daughter, Mary. John must face different dangers to progress.
The first episode will see John take on murderers, crazed cannibals. Each set piece has multiple sections to them that will have you reacting quickly or you will die. If you die during the set pieces, you will be sent back to start of the set piece.
It only took about thirty minutes to finish the episode and work well as a teaser for what might come for more episodes if Lambs on the Road.
With its price point, do not expect a long game, it’s more like a demo/teaser. However, if there is interest in this episode then there will be more.
Overall Lamb on the Road has potential to be an interesting game, that could have some great moments. I hope they make more would love to see where they take it.
