Amiga Amigos: Inescapable

The nineties never died

Magnetic Realms sounds like the name of a studio from gaming's past and it's fitting that the first release from the one-man band is an attempt to capture the strange beauty and mystery of the 16-bit home computer era. It's a sidescrolling adventure with an action garnish, taking place on a distant planet where a mining expedition has uncovered terrible things. Terrible Lovecraftian things. It looks lovely, with an optional CRT screen simulation effect to make your fancy monitor seem like a beautiful relic. Inescapable is available now, DRM-free, for $9.99 and you can see it in action below.

In the absence of a demo, it's impossible to say if it plays as pleasantly as I hope so I shall try the full version as soon as time permits. I'm already several thousand times more interested in this than I am in the Flashback remake.
