Characters Almost Done

Hey there,

as part of the aforementioned rewrite of Escape the Loop, the characters and the story needed a lot more work. As the lead writer, I've been doing a lot of reading, and a lot of writing in the past few months. Of course, I can't share any of the details with you (no spoilers, right?).



At this point, I'm happy to announce two things:

1. The character arcs are mostly done, as well as is the main story arc. So with that pinned down, we can start going into production of deeper game- and level design topics, as well as artwork.

2. Our previous project is nearing its completion, with artists and designers slowly starting to switch over to Escape the Loop. We're not done yet, but the coming months we'll be seeing a steady transition. For you, that means you can expect new artwork to pop up around here.

Well, that's all for now. Just thought we'd give you a short update.

As usual, don't hesitate to throw any questions at us.

Take care,
Steve

We Went to Montana, Here's What We Learned

Hey there,

so recently, I went on a trip to Flathead Lake in Montana, to get some inspiration for the level design of ETL. We did had some specific things in mind, but I wanted to make sure we got everything right – whether it be the people's attitude, the weather, or even just the foliage.

I talked to a lot of people, and took a ton of photos for inspiration and reference, and we thought we'd share a few of them. :redworker:

None of this is in-game, but we thought you might be interested to see what direction we'll be taking with the town. Also, no guarantees that anything you see here will end up making it into the game.





















As always, feel free to ask any lingering questions. :)

Take care!

About This Game



What if I told you, we've done this before? You've read this text, you've looked at these screenshots, and you've watched this trailer. Not once, but a hundred times. Maybe even more. And in five minutes, you won't remember any of it – and do it all over again.

Escape the Loop is an episodic open-world adventure game about time and recollection. You're stuck in a time loop – after five minutes, the world goes back to its initial state. Everything resets. You keep nothing. Except your memory of past loops. Every loop will be exactly the same, unless you change it through your actions. Use your knowledge of previous loops to find out what causes the time disruptions and break free once and for all.

An Open-world Episodic Game

You don't really hear the terms open-world and episodic together that often. It may seem somewhat counter intuitive to combine both in a single game, but Escape the Loop does just that. This unique approach will allow you to spend as much time with one episode, as you want. Try figuring out how to beat it, or waste your days exploring town, annoying neighbors, learning to play an instrument, or do whatever else you can think of doing in a time loop.
Each episode will not only be another chapter in Amelia's story, but also add a unique twist to the time loop mechanic, changing the town and its residents in new ways. This will make every episode as explorable as the previous one, with new things to do and more time to spend.
