Our videos of Escape Plan

The Playstation Vita's release is getting closer by the minute and Gamersyde has not finished covering the launch titles yet. Today, we suggest you take a few minutes of your time to take a look at a downloadable game which will be available as Wednesday at $14.99 (and apparently €12.99 in Europe): Escape Plan. Fun Bits' creation is a subtle mix between Lemmings and Limbo, which makes it all the more interesting. Using mostly classical music in its soundtrack, the atmosphere of the game is quite peculiar to say the least. The touchscreen and touchpad are your only way of interacting with Lil and Laarg and I must say this adds a lot to the relationship between the player and the two creatures.

Well ...for me its the only one cool game for Vita atm. I'd love to see such games on iOS :p

Actually looked pretty good, if simple. Wouldn't mind knowing if their are some ingenious uses of the mechanics later on in the game. Do love the level of interactivity with the environment this game provides.

I so want to play this. Looks awesome. Seems to be the best use of all the vita control options too. Really like the art style as well. They remind me of the enemies in american mcgee's alice. You can't get a hard copy of this tho can you? Download only? Either way it'll probably be a day 1 alongside wipeout, uncharted and motorstorm. Roll on wednesday.

iPhone games are crap period! Clumsy horrible control system with a view the size of a kids calculator!

Can't really knock this any for what it is, which is lemmings essentially. Undoubtedly clever and gorgeous looking etc and not too expensive. That's me though and i'd had my share of Lemmings after after the first game

What exactly is it with all the Ipad or Iphone grief? I think they're fantastic and allow you to jump into an experience very quickly- that usually being the point right. I'm right on 360 playing Bayonetta or something if i want something with a bit more meat but there is definitely something very satisfying about Ipad. I remember back when the VCS ruled and games were indeed for the most this casual quick experiences like Ipad offers. There's room for both types surely

Might catch you on wipeout ;D.

Also, as simple and "casual" many IOS games maybe, you have to appreciate some of the ideas that come from some developers and how they work around the limitations. Sure they don't always pull it off but you do have to sometimes give them credit. But hey that is the beauty of the Vita, it will be able to bring in the best of both worlds, the ingenuity of IOS/Android titles and the precise nature of modern console gaming and without so much of the hardware limitations when it comes down to graphical tech, gameplay innovations and the quantity of content in games. That amongst many reasons is why the Vita should be one the most exciting portable systems to any gamer and if what they've shown is capable at launch, it can only get much better later on in the products life cycle.

Game looks nice but it comes across as something that should come with a Vita to demonstrate the functions of the peripheral.

What's the point of tapping play before every room as well? Is it supposed to make the load times between such tiny spaces more acceptable?

I like the visual style and detail but the game just looks really boring. I got bored while watching the vids and couldn't finish. The frequent pauses in gameplay would be a little irritating too.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yep, absolutely no reason for me at all to get one right now. I'm good with Zelda on Wii U. If Mario had been a launch title though....... lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker this year because this was clearly going to be Sony's year, but then MS announced Scorpio and Mario Odyssey was announced. But next year should be fine, no big purchases planned, haha. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I told myself when PS4 had just released that I was gonna get one when Uncharted 4 came out, but when it came out I borrowed my brother's PS4 and finished it. So I was then planning on getting one (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: For Mario you have time until September. :-) (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I realize I'm going to need a PS4 for that and the plan is to get one next year. Just can't be this year with Scorpio, a new TV and probably a Switch for Mario too, lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker A JRPG like Ni No Kuni 2, Tales of series, Star Ocean even though the latest is bad. Not just JRPG either, games like Nioh, Nier etc (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Nah not those turn based JRPGs. Combat needs to be real time for me in any RPG. I just can't get into turn based battles. (1 Hour ago)
