Best Metroidvania You Didn't Play in 2013!
New review from The Slowdown
"Inescapable is a Metroidvania-style indie game of admirable constraint and deliberateness."

"...creates a style, and atmosphere, that is much its own."

"Much like the rest of the game, the visuals are notable for their effective understatedness."

" with the rest of the game, these snippets and bits of writing are ultimately a tool – rather expertly utilized by Fielding – for creating an illusion, or a sense, of place – and at the very end of the game, a very specific mental space that the game ultimately, laudably, inhabits."

"...everything about the game seems so very, very deliberate."

"Inescapable...made me confront my own mortality as a gamer and a reviewer."

Release date: September 25, 2013
The debut game from one-man independent developer Magnetic Realms, "Inescapable" is a Sci-Fi action adventure in which players unravel the mystery uncovered by a remote interplanetary mining operation. What did they find? What threat does it pose? And ultimately, what does it truly mean to be a hero?

Inspired by a wide range of classics of the genre from the 8 and 16 bit home computer era (eg. BBC, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Atari ST, Amiga etc) such as Exile, Gods, Switchblade, Flashback and even the Dizzy series.

  • Side scrolling action combined with adventure style puzzles.
  • A large world to explore with an intriguing story and an unusual, thought-provoking ending.
  • Hand drawn pixel art for a classic Amiga-esque look.
  • Features optional CRT screen simulation effect for a more authentic look on modern LCD monitors.

Yeah, I don't think that idiot knows what "literally" means. Anyway, he's the only person I've seen say wholely negative things about this game so he's probably full of it.
