Explore endless roads in this beautiful driving game that runs in your browser

Slow Roads pushes browser based gaming to the next level.

Having an absolutely tricked out PC with the latest and greatest tech is the dream for many a PC gamer. That pull is especially strong at the moment with the release of new premium hardware options like Nvidia’s RTX 4090 Founders Edition GPUs, AMD’s new Zen 4 Ryzen 9 7950X, and Intel Core i9 13900k CPUs. PC gamers around the world are dreaming of their next build.

But if we are honest with ourselves, that dream might be a bit further off than we’d like. Between bills, the economy, global shortages, and whatever’s next, it’s a bit of a lofty goal. A new PC that can do it all, probably isn’t in my near future. That’s why I’m so thankful that people are making incredible stuff, like this zen driving game, that runs in a browser window.

Slow Roads is an endless procedurally generated driving game that’s free to play in your browser. Its developer goes by Anslo, who recently posted a video of their game running to Twitter, announcing that the project was ready to share. The video shows off the game running with different environments, and times of day, and it’s immediately very clear that this is quite an impressive effort that really pushes browser based gaming.

“Slow Roads exists primarily as an exploration of procedural scenery generation, but also as an experiment testing the boundaries of 3D application development within JavaScript. As a game, this project is a nostalgic love letter to the rolling hills of the Peak District, and to the arcade rally games I would play for hours on end as a child. As a technical demo, I aim to set a high bar and redress the negative idea of what can be accomplished in the browser”
