Description
Release date: Q4 2016 / Q1 2017


Welcome to Escape Lizards, a brand new indie puzzle/platform game coming to Windows PC in late 2016/early 2017!

In-game, gravity will be your nemesis as you must guide the lizards' eggs from the starting point across a tilting series of increasingly difficult worlds. Use all the game mechanics available to you in order to roll, flip, and zoom through the checkpoint goals and beat each platform in the shortest time possible. All is not lost however, as you have multiple tools at your fingertips in order to scale any challenge thrown your way...


Get Tilting!

The first and most important tool in any lizard wizard's toolbox is the ability to tilt the world. Using this mechanic, you'll guide your precious egg over ramps, slopes, twists, turns, and tricks to get to the goal across even the most precarious of platforms. Just take care not to fall off as you race to get to the finish before the clock hits zero!

Flip Out!

Make gravity your plaything and solve advanced puzzles with the help of the best lizard wizards! When tilting the platform just isn't enough, flip the entire world ninety degrees and roll along walls and even ceilings in order to beat the clock and save your egg!

Star Power!

Beat each level within the time limit to pass them; but come back and beat them even faster to earn bronze, silver, and gold stars! Earning more stars will unlock more worlds and tougher levels. In addition, after every level your three fastest Steam friends' times will be shown, so compete and see who can score the fastest time, and browse the leaderboards from the main menu to see where you can earn more medals!

Never Stop!

Knock the evil vulture clan's eggs off the platforms as you race to the finish and unlock bonus content, challenge modes, and hidden levels. Each new level will present a fresh challenge and is designed to test your brain and your dexterity in ever-increasing amounts! Finally, even after you beat everything, take to the Steam store where you'll find free and downloadble extra worlds!



Escape Lizards gives you the tools to solve each of the 100+ increasingly difficult levels; but ultimately how you solve each one is up to you. Shave seconds off your time by cutting corners and taking risks, or take longer routes, knock vulture eggs off, and still enjoy beating and exploring all the levels! Eggcelent players will even find ways to flip the worlds and take shortcuts by rolling along walls and ceilings, the underneath of moving platforms, or even finding hidden paths to beat their friends and find The Elysian Fields flush with stars!




Escape Lizards will feature 11 distinct worlds, each with 10 unique and challenging levels to be beaten in increasing difficulty. The player will start at The Home Forest, before spanning out to new and exciting, glorious, or even scary environments; all created with a cel-shaded, cartoony theme. Below is just a selection of the worlds we have completed so far.

This looks really cool, thanks for turning down offers by sleazy Greenlight manipulators.

I'd love it if you could bring this to GNU/Linux, too :)

Looks fast-paced and awesome. I hope there will be a level editor.

I would like to see you participate in a competition that we’re running, the Game Development World Championship 2016. It's an opportunity to increase your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

Good luck with your game.
