Where do you go once you’ve successful Kickstarted a Dizzy-like 16-bit era platformer? Well, if you re the creator of Spud’s Quest, you create a top-down prison break game called The Escapists, and you Kickstart that, too. The developer explains that he believes the prison-break theme hasn’t been sufficiently explored by videogames: “Surely a game that encapsulates the tension and thrills of meticulously planning and executing a perfect prison escape would be fun, no? Well I think so, that’s why I’m asking for your help to make The Escapists.”
And he’s asking for just £3000 to get this off the ground. Doesn’t sound like a big ask, eh?
