To celebrate the upcoming launch, the team is also ready to reveal a new live-action trailer

New York, NY — September 24, 2020 — All passengers should now be on boardthis is the final boarding call for Airplane Mode. Developer Bacronym Games and publisher AMC Games announced today that Airplane Mode, the quirky air passenger simulation game, releases for PC and Mac worldwide on Steam on October 15, 2020, for $11.99.

Airplane Mode, players enjoy the thrill of travel by enduring flights lasting 6 hours or longer—in real-time—complete with crying babies, spotty wi-fi, turbulence, and tiny bags of pretzels. Airplane Mode features two flight optionsa 6-hour journey from JFK to Reykjavik and a 2.5-hour trip from JFK to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

After your plane leaves the runway, get ready to enjoy a variety of in-game content, including exclusive entertainment available only inside Airplane Mode. As revealed previously, you’ll hear flight updates from infamous game designer Bennett Foddy as the voice of your captain. And before takeoff, you’ll view an inflight safety video from AMC Games’ “slightly off” network sibling IFC.

One new source of content is in the Podcasts app on your in-game phone. The first exclusive podcast we’re revealing is an ambient music podcast by Noah Sasso. Sasso is the game designer of BaraBariBall from the classic indie game collection Sportsfriends. For more information on his work as a musician, check out getdizzy on Sound Cloud.

In addition to listening to exclusive podcasts, here are a few more experiences and activities in Airplane Mode:

  • Let the white noise of the engine, the “bing!” of the flight PA system, and the din of fellow passengers transport you instantly to your row and seat. Take in your surroundings and allow yourself to imagine a seatbelt fastened securely around your waist.

 

  • Your carry-on items and the in-flight entertainment system have never been more enjoyable. Will you find your missing pen? Did you forget your phone charger? Will you discover even more exclusive content? You’ll have to rummage around to find out!
  • Just like being a real-life passenger, there’s no need to learn how to fly a plane. Other flight simulations give you high-definition cockpits with a billion switches and dials, but Airplane Mode is the only one that offers a realistic depiction of how regular people fly.
  • Experience what might possibly be the most challenging videogame you’ve ever played. Will you experience the relief of being disconnected from the outside world? Or will listlessness prove to be your final boss battle?
