STOCKHOLM – March 24, 2022 – Indie publisher Raw Fury and game dev collaborative Geography of Robots are happy to announce that the genre-bending narrative adventure game NORCO is out now on Steam for PC and Mac. NORCO is also available today as a free download for PC Game Pass subscribers.

NORCO, the first-ever winner of the Tribeca Games Award, blurs the boundaries between art and video games. Heavily inspired by the titular town of Norco, Louisiana, and the greater New Orleans region, developer Geography of Robots blends true stories and personal history with inspirations from Southern Gothic literature and pulp fiction to create a uniquely dark and captivating game experience.

Set in a gritty, distorted version of South Louisiana, NORCO puts you on the search for your missing brother in the aftermath of your mother’s death. You’ll team up with a fugitive security android and explore the sinking suburbs, run-down strip malls, drainage ditches, and verdant industrial swamps of Louisiana's petrochemical hinterlands.
NORCO is available as a digital download in both Standard and Special Editions. The Special Edition includes the full game, The Art of NORCO art book, and the official soundtrack, featuring a complete new album by metal band Thou.

NORCO’s full first act is free to play on Steam; progress can be carried over to the full game when purchased.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana. Raw Fury has been putting out some good games.

Did anybody play this? Did you like it? Did you understand it?

I just finished the game. I don't regret playing it. I like that it was different and weird but I don't have a clue what it was about.

You got Norco just in time KatieB. That sale has just ended. Good for you!

They just did a major Update on NORCO Sunday and because of that they are running a Live Broadcast on the update now

EDIT: According to the update the sale on Norco will run until the 13th even though Steam is showing FULL price now...Go figure....

I am from Louisiana and I see this game as a love letter (in an odd sense) to the old Louisiana. It's pretty interesting. Half through now.

Just finished. 9.9 hours total (according to Steam.) Very creative, weird and wonderful...not sure exactly what it's all about but certainly gives me fodder for thought.

Thanks for your final thoughts KatiieB! Glad you liked it! It reminded me of some weird mixed up dreams I sometimes have.
