A Ride To Love is a ren'ai (romance) visual novel inspired by the Death Grips band, in which you interact with characters inspired by the band's members. You play as a young student in their first week at a new high school. In this new place you will meet Zach, Stefan, Andy and more, new friends (and foes?), all with their own strong personality. As you get closer to Stefan, tension arises.
A Ride To Love was first meant to be Cybergnose Café's first video game project, to be developed and published in the summer of 2017. Inspired by the Death Grips meme phenomenon and particularly a visual novel mockup slide, the project was supposed to be a very short experience. But as the want to deliver a better experience grew, the collective postponed the project to take the necessary time to create more than a goofy meme game. Lucas Vially started writing the game in November 2017, finishing it by the end of the year. The production kept going during 2018 with Vincent Vially on production, code and art, and Lucas composing some of the music. All that at a slow pace because of school, work, side projects and you know, life. After a reveal and the release of a demo in the beginning of 2019, Lucas took again the responsability to direct the project to prevent it from ending up in vaporware limbo. Péter György Szabó was also brought on board to compose some of the game's music.
