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.

@the people who can't find the game.

Just type "Inescapable" on the store page search and it will lead you there, the game is not pulled or anything, it's just has a broken link.

Excatly what "cjdoublejj" asked; Where is the store page? The store link goes right to the homepage/"featured" page of the store...There is nowhere to purchase this game. Pulled? Cant imagine why...hope the developer wasnt foolish enough to be belligerant - like the dev of Paranautical Activity who made a violent threat (sarcastically but that doesnt matter) against Mr. Newell and got his game kicked off steam on launch day. Idiot just ruined his profit margin (more likely his ability to pay off the massive debt he went into developing his first title, as all indie devs experience). Hope nothing like that happened here, Im VERY thirsty for some Metroidvania action

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.
