Two teenagers, two scientists
former players in 96 way Will contact Zoe, one of the main characters in the game. She is from the wealthy part of the city and her father works as Minister of Oil in President Tirak’s government.
Kaito – a character from Lost in Harmony – was born in the dangerous and gritty town of Colton and moved with his parents to the upscale White Sands apartment estate to get a job and escape the city’s pollution. For two years now, they’ve been living where all the VIPs live, as well as Tyrak.
Fascinated by his darkness, Zoe grows closer to Kaito and becomes good friends. The time she spends with him leads her to uncover disturbing truths about her country and even her father.
Will players discover why Zoe had to flee her home country? And what really happened in 1986 during the border attack? The friendship between the two is soon tested. How will it affect the fate of their story? Will they remain friends?
In Mile 0, we wanted to show where Zoe came from and why she left her comfortable life. But we didn’t do it the traditional way, we went the crazy route, with allegorical musical sequences where you witness Zoe and Keto’s beliefs and doubts. The funny thing is that you decide how you want to develop them.

The inner world of Zoe and Kaito
Players explore the inner worlds of the two characters. Even if the narrative part is the backbone Route 96: 0 milesAnd Zoe and Kaito are going to skate through psychedelic music rides. These journeys of fantasy use a unique blend of rhythm-based gameplay and narrative choices that allow players to influence and shape their own emotional journey.
The colorful and classic “Land Locked Heart” by US band The Midnight is about to be released. This is the first single from Route 96: Mile 0, which enhances the emotional experience for players.
This song is about the irony of coming home. While it’s where I grew up and where evidence of the origin story spreads, there comes a time when it doesn’t feel like home. At some point, it feels like a place you have to flee from, or that you’re destined to continue a story that isn’t your own. We’re excited to see the song come to life at Road 96: Mile 0.
