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!

Quite an enjoyable game.

A bit more puzzles rather than platforming than I would like, but that's just down to my personal taste.
The controls are solid, the music is great, the artstyle appeals to me, and overall is was just a very fun experience.
It felt like a very high quality Flash game, in the sense that it's really easy to get into and play in short sessions.

Only issue is I had random lag spikes at time. No idea what those were about.

Some platformers pride themselves in being tooth-pullingly difficult, just as some puzzle games seem to do the same in being unnecessarily oblique. "Escape Goat 2" finds the magic middle ground, requiring no more from a player than he or she is likely able to contribute. The platforming is just hard enough to be challenging, clearly not trying to be Super Meat Boy Redux. The puzzles will make you scratch your head, but won't make you scream aloud or hurl your mouse at your monitor (or your controller, as it is fully controller-compatible). I couldn't put this game down once I'd started playing, and once I did successfully put it down, I spent a lot of time thinking about that last room that I was having trouble clearing. Tim Schafer ought to be proud of this puzzle-platforming masterwork he's created. Eleven thumbs up!

This was one of those games I got in a Humble Bundle that I never really expected to play. It is a surprisingly brilliant platform puzzler, with a cute theme and a good level of difficulty. Most of the mechanics have been done before but it still manages to bring something unique to the genre, while the levels are short enough to be perfect for short sessions.

The only negative I can think of at this stage is that the game looks less good in the smaller levels, as the screen zooms in by dropping the resolution rather than using more detailed textures, but that is a minor quibble.

I love this game so much.
This game reminds me a game called Solomon's key on Famicon I played when I was child.
