Version 1.1 is live, including Workshop support

Already played the campaign 20 times? Optimized your speed run strats for each room? Dying for new content? Well you're in luck, because we've pulled the level editor out of the beta branch, and it's ready for you to try!

It's not pretty... there's still some programmer art, and no mouse support yet. But it gets the job done. Our fearless vanguard of beta testers have already populated the custom levels collection with some fantastic gems, so even if you're not up for building a level yet, give them a try and be inspired.

What's new in version 1.1?

  • ADDED Steam Workshop support - create and share levels!
  • ADDED support for rebinding of gamepad controls
  • FIXED key bindings not being saved properly
  • FIXED many in-game and startup crash bugs
  • IMPROVED performance for rendering

As always, I'm looking for feedback, so post to the forums and let me know what you think!

About This Game

"The game’s flow from challenge to discovery is a masterwork for the genre ..." - Ars Technica

Escape Goat 2 is a puzzle platformer game where you use machinery, the environment, and a friendly mouse to progress through a dungeon.

Overview: None have overcome the Stronghold of Toragos... will you be the first goat to do so? Escape Goat 2 is the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed 2011 indie game, featuring more than double the content: larger rooms, HD graphics, dynamic lighting, and a host of devilish new traps.

Pick your path through the massive Stronghold, divided into ten unique zones. Worry not, brave Goat, for you have a friend on this mission: Your immortal mouse familiar can crawl to otherwise unreachable areas, to hit switches and distract enemies. Use your wits, reason, reflexes and courage to overcome each room, and save your friends from an eternal slumber...

  • Over 100 rooms of puzzles, traps, and sheeply lore
  • With destructible and movable walls, the rooms take on many forms as you manipulate hidden machinery to reach the exit
  • Fully hand-drawn, hi-def art and animation, brought to life with a custom lighting engine
  • Epic 90's Redbook Audio soundtrack, featuring guest track by Disasterpeace (composer, FEZ)

Listen to the soundtrack!

If you played Escape Goat 1 you're in for a real treat. I found the first game to be fun but much too easy for my tastes. EG2 has proven to have quite a bit more variety thus far. He has implemented a much better system for moving between levels so that if you get stuck you can easily pull up the map and go back to any room and level of your choosing--no more need to start rooms all the way over just to find that one puzzle again.

Escape Goat 1 wasn't much on story, that's part of its appeal for many, you won't find much here either but if you talk to all of the animals you'll find quite a bit more story to get into. I find myself excited to beat the next section of levels so that I can find out what will happen or be said next; the game does a good job at keeping me coming back for more.

The art is fantastic, I enjoy the attention to detail and the great new lighting engine adds quite a bit of depth to the feeling of the game. You'll find a great soundtrack within the game too.
