Game: Escape

Escape is an atmospheric top down game where you must explore a mysterious forest to find a way out. You’re not alone out here, and something is coming for you from the shadows. Follow the light of the campfires. Their light keeps you safe, but not for long. Your surroundings are lit by a pulsing glow in time with your heartbeat. You panic, and your heartbeat races and your vision fades. Remain calm. Keep one step ahead of the shadows. Find safety in the light and escape this nightmare. Controls: Movement: W,A,S,D Sprint: Shift Exit / Quit: Esc Restart: Space (when gameover)


Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

Great game, gave me the creeps. I think I might have bugged because I landed in an area with no trees and I couldnt find my way back. Still loved it :D
