"A puzzle platformer that isn't necessarily long, but it is charming though. And one of the many reasons people need to play it."

“Escape Goat does a bang-up job of providing those all-important "a-ha!" moments of satisfaction, when you solve a puzzle, or get the timing of some jumps just right, and manage finally to complete an area. That's what keeps you playing right through to the end.”
8/10 – IGN

“… incredibly fun puzzle platformer with a rockin’ soundtrack.”

“With the ability to tackle levels at your own pace, and some masterfully-tuned difficulty, we can guarantee that you’ve never played a better goat-centric game.”

The goat represents your conscious self, while your rat partner is your subconscious.
You need to work together to escape the prison that represents the ego, toward your freedom, enlightenment!
It's a deep game just like that. Maybe!
And it's a kinda fun puzzle game too. Problem solving and looking at things as a whole are required.

Simple puzzle platformer game but don't underestimate it, It's entertaining and a lot of fun.
You're playing as a purple goat that accompany by a mouse, both are a witch.
Why you asked? Because if they wear a magic hat they can teleport and kill everything that inbetween their teleportation range. Even a reaper couldn't stand a chance.
You're in a place called "Prison of Agnus" and your mission is to save all the sheeps through all the puzzle rooms.

I don't want to waste your time reading this, just go buy it. It's worth it.

This is a fantastic game. Old style 2D platformer with perfect gameplay and challenging puzzles. I really enjoy this game, the only bad thing I can think of it, it's that is a really short game and the speedrun challenge wasn't hard at all and I got it at the first try. 9/10.
