Indie label Raw Fury has released The Longest Road on Earth, a new narrative-focused game for iOS and Android platforms. It was made available yesterday and is also on Steam.
Developed by Brainwash Gang, The Longest Road on Earth is a collection of wordless stories that explore the sanctity of life and the perceptions that define us as human beings. Strictly speaking, it’s a game that focuses on following the everyday lives of normal people spread out over individual chapters.

These stories are narrated, not through dialogue or text, but through music. The songs on The Longest Road on Earth’s soundtrack have been written and performed by Beícoli, who aims to capture the emotion of each scene through their performance in over 20 original tracks.
The game also uses a monochrome design in its visuals as well as light controls to ensure it doesn’t distract from the story. It’s made to be as accessible as possible, hence the lack of dialogue to bypass any potential language barriers.

This also translates to the simple controls and lack of any real difficult gameplay, focusing mainly on you experiencing these spaces with the other characters. Altogether the game will take around 2-3 hours to complete, so it’s a good one to go through in one sitting too.
