This page of the game guide contains a walkthrough of chapter 5 of Road 96. We described how to safely escape to the other side and thus save the fifth character.
The next chapter begins with a character selection. We opted for a character traveling in a stolen car.
You'll encounter Sonya early on. You can spend some time talking to her, learning about her and getting some money for your efforts. Drop Sonya off at a phone booth, then continue the journey without her.
You'll end up in a roadside bar. We recommend looking into the small room before entering the bar. You can open the room with a lockpick. Inside you'll find, among other things, the keys to a car you can escape with.
Grab the keys and enter the bar. You can gamble here to earn some valuable cash. This isn't the main reason why you're here though. You must spend some time with the men drinking by the counter. You'll lose conciousness and will be drawn into planning an ambush. Your choices here affect the ending you'll obtain.
After completing all the tasks inside the bar you can gamble some more to earn more money. Once you're done, head to the car you grabbed the keys to. Get inside and drive away.
You'll soon encounter a policewoman, Fanny, with an unusual task for you. You must carefully maneuver between the cars and drop her off at a specific location. This sequenece requires focus and agility.
Fanny will leave you something before getting out of the car. Pick it up to obtain the Government Pass skill.
This time we decided to escape through the mountains, since our character had plenty of stamina. We recommend maxing it out before choosing this difficult but rewarding route. Nothing will happen to you on the way if you make sure to rest at the designated places. You'll reach your destination with half your stamina remaining, letting you escape safely.
