The studio behind the Thirties supernatural mermaid-filled journey Name Of The Sea have introduced their subsequent recreation, and it seems to be like a tonally bang-on pastiche of actuality reveals, social media saturation and Nineteen Seventies dystopian sci-fi. Printed by Uncooked Fury, American Arcadia centres on Trevor Hills – a mean bloke in flares, tank high and ‘tache – who’s a bit too boring to outlive the unwitting reality-show metropolis of Arcadia the place he lives. Cue a mysterious information who might or might not be making an attempt to assist Trev escape. It is good to listen to that Yuri Lowenthal and Cissy Jones are again on voice duties, presumably as Trevor and his new pal, after their top-notch performances in Name Of The Sea.
American Arcadia is offered within the type of a documentary, with interviews and interrogation scenes. Out Of The Blue are increasing on the first-person puzzles from Name Of The Sea by introducing some 2.5D platforming this time round. Considered one of two playable characters will do the leaping and the opposite would be the first-person knowledgeable. Possibly they’re not nice multitaskers? It hasn’t been revealed who the opposite character you may play as is, however I am going to wager on Trevor’s mysterious information. Each kinds of play promise stealth and puzzles, but it surely sounds just like the platforming sections will see extra motion and the first-person bits will deal with fiddly stuff like hacking mini-games. Hopefully the latter will find yourself in a museum at some point.
Regardless that it’s simply been introduced, American Arcadia has made the minimize for this 12 months’s Tribeca Pageant. It is considered one of 9 official alternatives for this 12 months’s competition, which additionally consists of Cuphead: The Scrumptious Final Course, A Plague Story: Requiem, Oxenfree II: Misplaced Alerts, in addition to Sam Barlow’s newest, Immortality. A brief demo shall be on present from June 11-Nineteenth in case you occur to be in New York Metropolis then. Extra particulars in regards to the recreation must be forthcoming on the Summer season Recreation Fest in June, too, in accordance with Out Of The Blue.
That is hopefully after we’ll discover out American Arcadia’s launch date, however at the moment, you possibly can head to its Steam web page if you wish to hold an authoritarian eye on it. When you’re notably snoopy then there’s extra information on its official website too.
