Television network AMC and its newly-established subsidiary AMC Games have announced a brand-new flight passenger simulation titled Airplane Mode, scheduled to launch sometime in 2020 for PC.
Airplane Mode puts you in the passenger seat of a flight attendee, where you’ll sit through a “real-time, six-hour commercial airline flight [across the Atlantic]–in Coach,” according to the game’s Steam page. Every flight will reportedly feature randomized events to build “the most realistic flight simulation ever created down to every last detail–from the design of your seat and the seatback in front of you, to the contents of your carry-on bag and smartphone hard drive, to the behaviors of cabin crew and other passengers, and more.”
An Airplane Mode livestream is slated to go live on November 12 at 2 AM AST / 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM BST for the annual Desert Bus For Hope charity event. AMC shared a teaser trailer, which can be viewed below.
AMC’s vice president of gaming, Clayton Neuman, expressed enthusiasm for backing solo developer Hosni Auji‘s first mainstream project. “AMC has always been committed to bringing visionaries’ passion projects to life–on-screen and now in games, and we’re thrilled to launch this new label with the debut of Hosni Auji’s Airplane Mode,” Neuman said in a press release. “The game is as insightful as it is absurd; a meditation on the life between destinations, and one that we will be proud to bring to players worldwide next year.”
AMC Games may be the television network’s official branding for its indie publishing label, but the company has partnered with other third-party publishers on a handful of AMC-related projects. This includes adding The Walking Dead’s Negan to Tekken 7, assisting with The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, and several other titles based on the company’s Walking Dead property.
