Apple Arcade on Friday picked up its latest arrival, called “Next Stop Nowhere”. Created by developer Night School Studio of “Oxenfree” fame, “Next Stop Nowhere” is a road trip adventure story set in a colorful, cutthroat vision of outer space.
You play as Beckett, a simple courier living a simple life until a chance encounter with former bounty hunter Serra throws you into an adventure you never expected (and might not survive).
Here’s an excerpt from the official blurb
The unlikely allies fly across a dusty, deadly galaxy in a race to save Serra’s son Eddy–dodging gangsters, bounty hunters, and the dangers of deep space along the way. Beckett is in over his head. How he survives—the choices he makes, the relationships he forges, the person he becomes—is up to you.
Here’s a preview trailer for the game.
Key features include:
- An intelligent conversation system with branching dialogue that changes your relationships and the story based on every decision
- A spaceship that comes fully equipped with his own personality
- A completely unique version of space (the outer reaches of a dilapidated galaxy) filled with colorful skies, treacherous asteroids and a several orbits to explore
- A thrilling and thoughtful narrative brought to life by a vibrant cast of voice actors
- Cross-device play through Apple Arcade
“Next Stop Nowhere” is available across the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV free of charge with an Apple Arcade subscription.
