In this context, it’s heartless to moan about some gameplay and design issues, like mostly uneventful driving parts or linear nature of family meetings where a failure is hardly an option. All these gripes are fully acceptable if you put your heart into the game. Road to Guangdong might not be the next must-buy hit but it has more humanity to share than most games out there put together.

Too slight to be seriously considered a Ja-copy of Jalopy, Road to Guandong has some adorable visual-novel moments that focus on family. It’s just a shame, then, that the road trip sections to reach them are so lifeless.

Overall, I would describe the game as having a big heart. From the devs making changes after early access feedback, to the characters, and the story of the importance of family, you can feel the love in the game. I was heartbroken when I failed a mission, leaving with no recipe and a family member that wouldn’t visit the restaurant. The difficulty isn’t too bad, even though there isn’t a proper tutorial.
