Escape 2042 is available !
Escape 2042 is GreenLit !
Release date: April 2017
This game is a fast paced 2D platformer with 2 mini-games included.
The main game features security cameras to avoid, firing enemies, grenades to collect, computer "hacking" to open doors or disable laser protection fields, and level card based locked door in the first prison levels.
The game will take place in 3 different environments (prison, forest, desert) interspersed with 2 mini-games including a reversed shoot'em up and an original abseiling game.

The Story:
In the year 2042, a socialist government is in power, but nobody had foreseen progressive dictatorship that settled in. The elites of the government hid behind a sham democracy, disconnected from the life the people were leading, and acted solely in their own interests.

The regime considered the dissidents as conspiracy theorists, treated them like terrorists and locked them away in highly-secured prisons, to prevent them from telling the people the truth about the manipulating medias accomplice of the government power.

You are Eris, a computer engineer and member of the Truth Defenders coalition.

After a clandestine operation to inform the people, you are locked away in the highly-secured prison Bulor 24.

But your knowledge on security systems will enable you to escape.

Your turn now to escape as fast as you can from this place!

The project is also targeted for retro gaming platforms such as Megadrive (Genesis), Gameboy, Dreamcast, PC-Engine.

How much money does it cost?

Graphics and music are on point. However, it feels like you're trying to cram too many different types of gameplay into your game. Abseiling minigame? Really?!

Unless you're marketing your game as "a mashup of a bunch of genres" (e.g. Evoland 2), this simply isn't going to fly.
