American Hero: Jack on the hunt for the malignant virologen

American Hero Full Motion Video (FMV) Game Ziggurat Interactive, Publisher and developer of retro and modern titles, has released American Hero, an action-packed FMV title, for PlayStation 4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC (exclusively over Gog), an Atari VCS version will follow shortly.

The game, an allusion to the action movies of the 80s, was originally developed for the Atari Jaguar CD, but never completed — until now! In their desire to bring classic retro titles on modern platforms, Ziggurat Interactive has secured the rights to American Hero and completed this lost gem together with the developer Empty Clip Studios.

American Hero is a real product of his era and is passing only with shabby Spells, brainwashed handlers, a mad villain and the Timothy Bottom nominated for the Golden Globe Award (which contributed new voice recordings).

American Hero was written in the 1990s and is a satire on the exaggerated action films of the 80s, which is even aged to a cartoon of the 90s cinema. In this playable movie, professional actors play with, including Timothy Bottoms (The Last Picture Show, Elephant), Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, Final Destination) and Musette Wander (O Brother, Whore Art Thou, Wild Wild West).

It was an incredible journey to get this unique and ambitious FMV project, improve and complete, says Michael Devine, SVP of Business Development. This was our greatest challenge in the restoration, and that we can publish American Hero today is an example of the ethos that drives us to preserve our game history.

In American Hero, the players hatch in the role of the former American intelligence officer Jack, who has to stop the malignant virology Krueger, who plans to let go of an ominous virus on the water supply of Los Angeles. Players must make spontaneous decisions that help or hinder Jack while trying to find and protect the only scientist who has the remedy for this deadly pathogen.

American Hero Features:

A fully realized screenplay on Hollywood level with player-controlled action and dialogue decisions A gloomy, adult action history with violence and sex appeal A unique, virtually seamless FMV format that feels like a movie The return of Hollywood actor Timothy Bottoms as Jack with newly accepted voice output
