Publisher Raw Fury and developer Out of the Blue have revealed the first extended trailer for America Arcadia during today’s Summer Game Fest. The world premiere gives players the first detailed look at the upcoming 2.5D platformer and first-person puzzler, where players explore the unique stories of two characters – each with their own distinct gameplay – whose lives and fates are intertwined.
You can watch the extended trailer below. It first premiered during Summer Game Fest.
Trevor is just an average person living a mundane life, enjoying his daily routine and the small little things that make him happy. In the real world that wouldn’t be a problem, but in Arcadia, not being popular enough means trouble. But he’s 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?

About American Arcadia
Welcome to Arcadia, a ‘70s-style, retro-futuristic metropolis promising a life of luxury and comfort for everyone. Only, citizens don’t realize they’re playing roles in American Arcadia, the world’s most popular reality show that’s been broadcasting live, 24/7, for decades, and their supposed utopia is not all it seems. Under the eyes of countless viewers, popular citizens lead a carefree life, but those who fall out of the audience’s favor risk a more dangerous outcome…
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 fully 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.
