The sun sets low on the horizon. The gentle sounds of the engine blend in with the chill music from the radio. The road stretches like a ribbon ahead of you. Wildflowers, trees, lakes, and even birds are in a serene stillness. This zen scene on the open road is what you'll experience playing Slow Roads.

Slow Roads is a chill driving game where you take a break from reality and ride endlessly from hills to vast plains. Customize the surroundings to match your mood, turn on some peaceful music, and simulate a blissful road trip online!

How to Play Slow Roads?

  • Slow Roads is a 3D driving simulator that provides a serene and relaxing escape from real life. There is no mission to complete and no destination to arrive at.
  • Create your own world instantly by choosing among a variety of surrounding options. 
  • Select your vehicle and start driving using the WASD keys. 
  • You can even toggle on auto drive by pressing F and enjoy the landscape view while lying back on your couch. 
  • Remember, it’s not a game of speed, stunts or drift but for relaxing with a peaceful browser game in your spare time. Yet, you can still speed up to 160 km/h using the cruise control.
  • Now, let's move on to how many different combinations of surroundings you create in this cozy simulation game. 

Earth Maps

Starting at home planet Earth and over the hills, you have 4 choices of options by altering the hills by switching between seasons.

  • Spring: Aesthetic scene with lakes and flowers
  • Summer: Feel the warm breeze and enjoy the view of various trees
  • Autumn: The green blends with orange in vast forests
  • Winter: Slippery roads and Christmas spirit all along
