Overhead view, stealing cars, shooting up everything – American Fugitive looks like a modern take on the classic GTA format.
On the lam
Fallen Tree Games’ American Fugitive might look a lot like polished up version of the old GTA format, before the series went 3D. What it actually is though, is a more action-y version of the classic TV show/movie The Fugitive.
You play as Will Riley, a man who has been wrongly convicted of murdering his father. Needless to say, justice must be done. Well, that and a prison break, and a cross county spree.
Set in 1980s middle-America within a sleepy rural town, American Fugitive invites you to play as Will Riley. By no means a killer, but no angel either, you face life in prison for a crime you didn’t commit. Fueled by grief over the cold-blooded murder of your father, and armed with a burning desire for vengeance you’ll need to break out of jail to find the real culprit. Simply put: It’s payback time.
An ensemble cast of characters will offer players perilous missions across a story spanning 10-14 hours of gameplay time, allowing players a chance to help Will set things right. But can any of them be trusted to help Will uncover the truth? Are their motives as questionable as their integrity?American Fugitive press release
