Northbound is an explorative, narrative-driven Adventure-Game, created by Arno Justus and Johannes John Koeberle.
In Northbound, players take control of a university graduate who, out of a lack of direction and a desire to escape his everyday life, goes on a roadtrip with his childhood friends. On the road, packed tightly inside the small bus, he realizes that alot has changed since they were kids.
Northbound started as a BA-Project in the 6th semester of Game Design at the Zurich University of the Arts.
During the semester Arno and Johannes were able to exhibit the game at various events and gather a lot of positive feedback. After they completed their bachelors degree successfully, they decided to continue the production of Northbound.
