No Straight Roads - Launch Trailer | PS4.
In No Straight Roads, the player takes control of either Mayday or Zuke and can switch between them anytime in single player. The game is designed around a rhythm-based combat system in which the player can move freely without having to follow the beat, but still has to pay attention to audio cues in order to plan their moves. The music notes they collect can be used as projectiles, and some objects can be transformed into weapons during boss battles.
Mayday and Zuke attack differently due to their specializations. Mayday's guitar swings and attack transformations deal more damage, while Zuke builds up combos with his drumsticks and provides support using his transformations. A skill tree depends on the number of fans the band has at a time. As Bunk Bed Junction's popularity rises, the player is offered upgrades to their abilities or additions to their individual movesets.
Every area of Vinyl City hosts an artist promoted by NSR. Bunk Bed Junction is to take them on, obtain their Platinum Discs, and further open up the city.
The game takes place in the fictional high-tech metropolis of Vinyl City, which is stated to be the music capital of the world. The city is governed by No Straight Roads (NSR), a corrupt electronic music label whose goal is to monopolize the music industry and continue their control of the city and maintain order. Vinyl City is made up of several districts, with each one run by one of NSR's artists as charters. They each possess a Platinum Disc which gives them control of a certain district.
Vinyl City's power comes from a technology called "Qwasa" which turns music into efficient energy. NSR's influence lets them host the Lights Up auditions to find talented artists who can provide a source of energy for the city and meet the label's standards of order. Knowing this, Bunk Bed Junction sets out to challenge their rule.
The protagonists are the indie rock band Bunk Bed Junction consisting of Mayday (voiced by Su Ling Chan), the energetic, hotblooded guitarist, and Zuke (voiced by Steven Bones), the self-possessed, relaxed drummer, who fight to bring back rock music to Vinyl City and defeat NSR, the EDM empire by hijacking their artists' concerts. NSR is led by Tatiana (voiced by Priscilla Patrick) and has a roster of superstar artists which includes DJ Subatomic Supernova (voiced by Mohamad "Uncle" Ali Imran), an egotistical space-themed DJ who performs to spread his music all over the universe, Sayu (voiced by Nikki Simmons), a bubbly digital pop idol designed as a mermaid who believes heavily in the power of love, Yinu (voiced by Damia Huda), a piano-playing child prodigy known as 'the Golden Maestro of Vinyl City', 1010 (all voiced by Muhammad Zulhilmi), a robotic navy-based boy band, and Eve (voiced by Joanna Bessey), a shapeshifting diva who creates and curates abstract art. Other notable characters are Yinu's overprotective Mother (voiced by Azah Boémia Anuarul), Neon J. (also voiced by Muhammad Zulhilmi), 1010's cyborg superintendent and former war ex-soldier, and DK West (voiced by Alfred Loh), a well-known rapper. Numerous other characters inhabit Vinyl City, such as Kliff, self-proclaimed number 1 fan of Bunk Bed Junction.
