Stage 1 – Play Through the 6 chapters and collect 18 Tapes


Welcome to this trophy guide for Road 96 a procedurally generated adventure game by DigixArt and Ravenscourt. You will play as 6 teenage runaways who are all trying to reach the border and escape the tyrannical country of Petria. Along the way you will encounter several recurring characters whose stories are intertwined.

Before you start it’s important to watch your health bar as you can die, therefore steal any money or food you can find as there is never any terrible consequences for doing so. Make sure your health bar stays full, and choose wisely when selecting which path to take.

There are a few missable trophies. The most important being “Stone After Stone” When reaching Road 96 with each of the runaways make sure to leave a stone on the cairn inside the cave behind the waterfall. You’ll only be able to leave one stone so this will have to be done with 3 runaways. The 6th runaway will enter the cave and the cairn will be destroyed so you will only get 5 attempts at this.

“Cat Person” and “A Light in the Darkness” are both earned in the chapter ‘Smells like teen spirit’ Where you will also meet Zoe for the first time. Make sure to pet the cat sat on the woman in the chair after speaking to her. Then at the end when with Zoe, make sure to blow on the fire.

“Homesick” and “Campaign Funder” can be unlocked in any chapter where there is a phone booth. It costs $1 to phone and a further $10 to make a donation. The numbers to make a donation are 96777 to call and donate to Florres or 96555 to call and donate to Tyrak.

Collectibles, you will need to find and collect 18 tapes for the trophy “Collect ’em All”. Tapes are found inside cars, will be given to you by characters or can be bought for $10. As the game is procedurally generated each time you play you will get different chapters and therefore different opportunities to collect tapes. Thankfully tapes carry over and if you fail to collect 18 in a single palythrough you’ll be able to carry on in New Game +. Some examples of tape locations are provided in the trophy section below.

Collect ’em All
Collect all tapes

In total there are 18 tapes to collect, they are different ways to get them. Some will be given to you, others you will find inside vehicles or you can buy for $10.

When inside any vehicle always check around and see if there is a tape, and make sure to buy any you have the opportunity to.
