“This episodic game continues to evolve, proving that the developers are listening and they are on the right track.”
8.5 – Vandal

“The Great Escape is such a better episode than the first ones, that it's not an easy task to avoid comparisons with those 90s LucasArts classics.”
8 – Gamereactor

“With high-quality writing, voice acting, and graphic design, it stands well above the expectations I had going in, and I’d easily recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of the point-and-click genre.”
8 – Twinfinite
