Hi! I'm CnN along with Re, and we're building MURICA, a metroidvania style adventure/RPG Freedom Simulator for play on PC through Steam. (you'll need a valid Steam account)  Release is targeted for Q4 2019.



To make MURICA great we need stuff like food and electricity.  Your support for MURICA on Patreon puts us in a position to sideline our other work and focus 100% of our time on getting the best MURICA in your hands by our target of Q4 2019.

We're really excited about making this game and sharing the MURICAN story with the world. These aren't just alternate facts, they're alternate facts from an alternate universe. Think about that for a second.



All supporters are automatically made MURICAN citizens (Congratulations!) and are granted access to subscriber content featuring extended commentary on game play, plot, characters, and more. We'll be updating everyone at least twice a month on the 2nd and 4th weekends.

From there higher tiers will enjoy exclusive perks like voting rights, copies of the game on release, their names and support levels in the finished game, and more.

Most of all you'll be getting the satisfaction of helping MURICA pull itself up by it's bootstraps, which shouldn't be physically possible. Becoming a patron allows us to bring you the best MURICA by our projected release date. We have a lot we want to bring to the table that you can make happen. Voice acting is a prime example, but we need the extra time and funds to get additional voices and script meaningful cut scenes for them.



After being shot through a wormhole by your smart TV, you wake up to find yourself in MURICA, an alternate version of our United States 2,000 years in the future.

Your journey begins atop the GREAT WALL of MURICA on the Canadian border:
It was only a matter of time before the MURICANS deduced everyone was out to get them. Better to wall the whole country up... for freedom of course.

All humans are gone:
There are plenty of cyborgs, and a few clones to boot. There's a bit of tension in the air as cyborg dominated MURICA is considering legislation to vent earth's atmosphere into space in response to 'the air-pollution crisis created by solar power'. Although cyborgs don't need to breathe, clones do.

Your body was exploded on the trip here:
Due to staffing cuts at the US of MURICA Department of Teleportation and Stuff there was an oversight by outdated AI, and your body didn't make the trip. Your soul has been downloaded into a Type-77 clone as a temporary replacement. You're welcome.


As a human, you're not welcome:
Nobody can remember when or why all people were made illegal. Something about freedom... or maybe security. At any rate cyborgs will be after you. Luckily your soul is stuffed into a clone for the time being, and yes... we know, we know, you're upset about your former body. Don't worry, there's sort of a chance at a shot at maybe getting your real body back. Don't be so hyperbolic, point is nobody knows who you are yet, so as a clone you should be safe. For now.

Travel across MURICA looking for a way home:
The way home isn't clear, but you're told the people at the US of MURICA Department of Teleportation and Stuff would be the only ones with the power to send you back. Their offices are located in what used to be Washington DC hundreds of miles away, but don't worry, we're sure you won't get roped into some grandiose plan to save the universe from collapse. Nope, just straight to DC.

Things you'll do in MURICA:
Over the course of your travels you'll see many places and meet many 'people', get involved in the culture, maybe accidentally start a religion. Heck, you might even make some friends and decide to stay a bit longer than you planed, to see some things through.
