What if graffiti could change the world?

Urban lifestyle guru Marc Ecko has teamed up with Atari to deliver a realistic slice of urban culture and graffiti art in this 3D action adventure.

The game follows the trials, tribulations and talent of Trane (voiced by hip-hop artist Talib Kweli), an upcoming artist getting up his tag. In a world where freedom of expression is banned by a tyrannical government, Trane finds a voice through his art.

Contents Under Pressure features a fresh hip-hop soundtrack that emphasises Trane's struggle and emergence as an unlikely leader of urban revolution.
