Hi everyone, thanks for all the support and votes so far! I just wanted to highlight a very nice review from The Slowdown's Martyn Zachary.[www.slowdown.vg]

"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."

"...as 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."

Hi all,

Version 1.1 of Inescapable is now available. This update includes some gameplay tweaks based on player feedback. The most significant change is that now the shock absorbers completely absorb all falling damage.

Full change list:

  • Fixed sound init problem for some Windows 7 users
  • Improved support for certain USB gamepads
  • Shock absorbers now reduce all falling damage to zero
  • Strong updrafts are now more visually distinct from others
  • Fixed a bug where a key reappeared even after collected
  • Made some underwater jumps easier
  • Improved physical layout of some neighbouring rooms to make more sense
  • Fixed a typo in the story text

"Inescapable hits all the right notes..."
"I found the ending quite moving. A thoughtful critique smartly grounded in its simplicity, Fielding found the perfect way to cap off your soldier’s exploits."
