Escape 6, Indie Games, Pico Day

Posted by Afro-Ninja - April 25th, 2012

Finally got around to releasing Escape 6 last night


been sitting on that one for a while, feels weird having it uploaded now. for any fans of the genre, or point and click in general, could you give me some feedback? Escape 5 & 6 haven't been doing too well, I'm trying to figure out if it's the games themselves or just a waning interest in the genre.

Last night I caught a screening of Indie Game: The Movie with some of the NG crew downtown in Philly. Was a pretty interesting doc, followed the progression and release of Super Meat Boy, Fez, and Braid. It's definitely a good look into how dedicated you have to be to follow through on projects like that.

Lastly Pico Day is coming up this weekend and I'll be here in town with the rest of the gang, looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting some new faces!

Saw IGTM last week. As a kid who aspires to get into the same industry, that documentary is pretty soul crushing, but definitely a must see.

I think your games are great. Your new one had me scratching my head for a bit; I was thinking that the letter pies were more along the lines of 3.14, guess I was overthinking things. I don't know why interest is waning, maybe adding some VAs would spark some more interest? Hint hint :}

I actually found escape 6 to be quite interesting, i solved it without looking at the walkthrough (a first for me)
I liked especially the rewiring part and the lighthouse light part. morse code was fun too.
cant imagine why the escape games havent been doing well

Thought I'd say hi, as I will not be there... again. I'll try to visit this summer, especially if the raft-off becomes a reality. But it'll be hard starting a new job. Good luck on the game.

I waited so long for Escape 6! I always enjoy your Escape Games. Please, don't ever stop making them! Escape 6 is a little shorter compared to Escape 5, but I liked it a lot. Especially the 'letters = pies' puzzle!

Keep up the good work!

Sure I loved how it all played out, fab quality! But ultimately, I beg to know like, why tell about the scary face? On this note, no-one knows exactly who appears smiling?

(Start at the first pie in 'Sure' then count every ten pies - receive your answer!)

it's just a little personal easter egg :)

Escape 6 was great! I would love to see more. It games like these that make you think that I like.

Oh god.Totally gonna play this.
