Release date: 2015
The game will be available for free.

Игра будет доступна бесплатно.

Electric Highways is a game that's all about experience and exploration. The project is like an interactive conceptual music album, where each level is like a short song, with the visuals that match the music. Everything in the game has been created for the purpose of giving the player a certain kind of emotion, and the setting takes place in a surreal, virtual world, made out of abstract 3d graphics, where the player must explore ten levels, each with an individual theme, while listening to different music tracks and finding way out.

The year is 2072. Virtual reality has become a worldwide phenomenon, allowing people to sink into the virtual web, while experiencing isolation in real life. A VR engineer has finished his virtual reality project, but before uploading it on the web, he decides to visit it for the last time, plunging deeper into his own surreal world.

The atmosphere of the game has been inspired by early 80's electronic music (including such examples as Gary Numan and Depeche Mode), visual styles of old games like System Shock, LSD: Dream Emulator and the 1984 version of the film Metropolis. The project features a 100% original soundtrack inspired by classic electronic music.


Electric Highways это игра-экспириенс, действие которой происходит в недалёком будущем. Игра в какой-то мере является интерактивным музыкальным альбомом, где каждый уровень – будто бы небольшая песня, с визуальным рядом, дополняющим музыку. Всё в этой игре, особенно графика и музыка, было создано с целью вызвать у игрока определённые эмоции. Сеттинг — сюрреалистичный виртуальный мир, созданный из абстрактной 3Д-графики, и игроку предлагается исследовать десять уровней, каждый со своей тематикой. Игра берёт вдохновение из электронной музыки начала 80-х, фильма Metropolis, и классических игр, вроде System Shock и LSD: Dream Emulator.
