STOCKHOLM – April 26, 2022 – Out of the Blue, developers of the critically acclaimed Call of the Sea, and Raw Fury are teaming up to put their second collaborative project on the broadcast schedule: American Arcadia. This exciting new title combines two gameplay styles: a 2.5D platformer and a first-person puzzler – in a thrilling single-player experience with a unique story.

In American Arcadia, players take on the roles of two characters – each with their own distinct gameplay – whose lives and fates are intertwined. Arcadia is a ‘70s-style, retro-futuristic metropolis where everyone enjoys a life of luxury. But what the citizens don't know is that they are playing a role in American Arcadia, a television show that has been broadcast live 24/7 for decades. Under the eyes of countless viewers, those who are popular lead a carefree life with nothing to fear. But those who fall out of the audience’s favor risk a far less rosy outcome…
For an average man with an uninteresting life like Trevor Hills, that should mean serious trouble. But Trevor has found help from a mysterious voice promising to guide him through American Arcadia's backstage to his freedom. Is this offer real? Or merely a gimmick to raise audience ratings?
American Arcadia Features:
- Escape a ‘70s Televised Utopia: Discover a gripping story presented uniquely as a documentary, with character interviews and interrogations as you progress.
- Two Experiences in One Game: Control two characters with completely distinct play styles: one a 2.5D side-scroller with challenging platforming action, breathtaking chases, stealth and puzzles, the other a full 3D first-person game with hacking, exploration, stealth elements and puzzles.
- Rich Characters & Performances: Exceptional voice talent, including Yuri Lowenthal (Spider-Man, Prince of Persia, Call of the Sea), Krizia Bajos (Cyberpunk 2077, League of Legends) and Cissy Jones (Firewatch, Life is Strange, Call of the Sea), breathe life into a world of compelling characters.
American Arcadia is in development for PC and consoles. It is available to wishlist now on Steam.
American Arcadia will participate in this year’s TRIBECA Games Festival. More information on the title will be revealed during this year’s Summer Game Fest and on its official website: www.americanarcadiagame.com.
