If you are a fan of the older top down Grand Theft Auto games, then American Fugitive is definitely up your alley. Even if you’re not, American Fugitive has some really interesting gameplay mechanics, and a fun story that is totally worth engaging in. It also has a lot of random world activities to partake in that makes for a fun over-the-top adventure. You play as Will Riley, who is framed for the murder of his father and sent to prison. You then break out and seek revenge. The plot itself is simple, but the characters you meet along the way and the overall journey makes for a fun romp.

Inspired by classic GTA, American Fugitive is a modern take on sandbox action, offering a new 3D top-down open-world single-player experience. Developed by Fallen Tree Games, the two studio founders have extended AAA backgrounds; including titles such as TimeSplitters, Crysis, Black, and Goldeneye 007: Reloaded.
Welcome to Redrock County, a sleepy American town with a booming criminal underbelly.
You take the role of Will Riley. No angel for sure – but not a killer. Yet the cold-blooded murder of your dad is the crime they locked you up for. Fuelled by grief and a burning desire for vengeance, you’ll bust out of jail intent on finding the real culprit.
Once outside, you’ll need to blend with the townsfolk to avoid recapture. Establish contact with the criminal underworld and stay one step ahead of the police dragnet.
Set in the deep south of the 1980s, American Fugitive is a love-letter to the classic movies and games of old.
