A downloadable game

Route Nowhere is a 2d point and click adventure game that takes place somewhere out there along the roads of a fictional version of the southwestern United States. The game revolves around a hitchhiker who has set out on a road trip across the United States heading west.Encounter strange characters, solve puzzles and visit interesting locations.. including roadside attractions you'd come to expect from a game based off of Route 66. Eventually the hitchhiker ends up in a strange town where a lot of weird and bizarre things are happening and soon finds himself trying to discover why the sun never rises in this small town..

(The prototype was originally made for #adventurejam, but the game is now in full development. Due to the fact that the game has been rebuilt + improved since the original release I have decided to remove the old build off of here for now.)

I may re-release a new build here eventually or you can get it on my patreon..

Thanks for taking a look!

Route Nowhere was originally created for #adventurejam under the name The Endless Night - Prelude and is now being turned into a full game called Route Nowhere.

Additional Story background: The protagonist of the story has lived his entire life on the East Coast.. Suddenly finding himself compelled to hitchhike across the United States he starts off on his journey and finds himself traveling across an old roadway in the southwestern U.S which has now become obsolete due to a new interstate. As he hitchhikes his way across the southwestern states.. he soon finds himself stranded in a strange desert town where many odd and mysterious things are happening to its inhabitants and the surrounding area..

The game takes a lot of inspiration from old adventure game classics, movies, and pop-culture,.. including shows such as The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Route 66 etc...

Some characters you'll be encountering in the full version of the game:
A guy with a singing dog!, Elvis impersonator!, Madmax look-a-like, Some guy based off of the actor Andy Devine, Six-foot tall rabbit that hangs out in a bar, A Cowboy!, Guy in a grey suit with a red bow-tie looking for his bicycle that was stolen!, Generic Man number 2...Generic Woman number 5.. A Love interest!, Government dude.. AND MANY MORE!
