Escape: Forced Overtime is a lewd puzzle game (or a “Bound girl simulator”) about a woman that finds herself in a sticky situation; caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, she must escape her bindings through a variety of situations!

Note: this article is a FRACTION of the full review. To read the whole article (including commentary and ratings), be sure pay my site a visit.

Note: I couldn't be bothered to beat this game, I'd hate to waste anymore time on it. Take this article with a grain of salt.

Gameplay
Reach the knife in each level through movement-based puzzles to escape your restraints! Most of the stages follow two formats; one allows you to move on your feet, often times forcing carefully balanced “jumps” to reach your destination; and the other forces you to lie down, using a suite of “leg and torso control”. The latter requires a great deal of skill. There is no guessing which way to move — if you can’t properly maneuver the floors, you’ll gonna have a bad time. You have a limited amount of stamina. If you move too fast or too much the screen with spin and shake and you’ll lose nearly all control. As you complete levels, you’ll unlock new customization options for the player character. Supposedly, there are unlockable “lewds” (but I didn’t see any CGs after struggling for over an hour).

Sexual Content
I didn’t see any nudity or sexual-content. The main protagonist spends the game tied-up, and she sports a jiggly pair of breasts — but I whether or not there’s nipples beneath her office attire remains to be seen.

Verdict
I can’t bring myself to beat this game. It’s just not for me, and it’s probably not for you either. If you’re looking for a fappy-fap or fun with BDSM, this is not your game. If you want any form of fast pasted gameplay, this is not your game. If you want in-depth character customization or modding support, this is not your game. The goal of the game is simple; you only need to collect the “knife” from each stage (and it’s clearly marked). However, reaching that knife is an arduous journey of mashing keys and hoping for the best. That, or learning the intricacies of a game that’s a few hours long. Even if this game interests you, you should wait for a sale.

i really don't think its fair to make a review on a game you can't bring yourself to finish because of the "controls" you should be looking at the game through other peoples eyes and not just your own if you are going to do that

I deeply appreciate the replies and corrections. I didn't want to make any claims I couldn't back, so I tried to steer clear of anything I couldn't vouch for. I'll update my review accordingly.

To be honest, this game kind of pissed me off. As I mentioned, the gameplay is novel, but beyond the controls I thought the game was tedious and uninspired. I hope I was clear enough that my "review" isn't the best representation of the game (seeing how I quit early on). However, I still believe this game will only appeal to a niche crowd (and there's a lack of features and mechanics to appeal to a wider audience).

Disagree with the review, there is nudity and BDSM.

There is nudity and no censorship. I beat it and took around 3.1 hrs to 100%. You eventually unlock different gags and the ability to remove clothing. Just thought I'd let you know so you can update the "(Adult) Content" and "Censorship?" section.

I personally don't agree with your review and think people who like BDSM and puzzles would enjoy this game (on a sale, I think.) it's done pretty well with how she moves tied up once you get the hang of it. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Anyway, nice review!
