The Escapists 2

Today, some more additional content for The Escapists 2 was released: the Snow Way Out update. Here’s a trailer and some details:

Following on from last year’s free Santa’s Shakedown release, Santa has now ditched his mantra of good will to all and has instead opened a booming online retail store. His sleigh sits abandoned, as new delivery sleighs ship products all around the world. The North Pole now contains warehouses and concrete cells to contain the poor elves forced to work for Santa. You still better be on your best behaviour, as waking up with a lump of coal in your desk is the least of your concerns!

The update includes the following:

  • A new festive themed prison to escape
  • 4 new jobs: burning letters to Santa, engineering, reindeer feeding and servicing the robot workers
  • New items to forge a new craftable weapon – the Candy Pain!
  • Unique ways to escape

Human: Fall Flat

Last week, Curve Digital announced that Human: Fall Flat is getting a new level in 2019, simply called Dark. Here’s a trailer and some details:

Dark takes place as Bob is dreaming of a night-time area, set under the haunting glow of a full moon and complete with classic horror tropes and imagery. With all sorts of tricky puzzles and devious contraptions, Dark will have players messing with magnets, electricity and, of course, Bob’s signature wobbly physics! This stage is available to play in both single-player and multiplayer.
