Our Work

The Escapists is a fantastic franchise that we had the pleasure of working on twice. The first round of work we did was asssiting the team with the Xbox One and PS4 ports of the game. Helping with the adjustments from the PC version, the new UI/control implementation and then the bug fixing to make sure that the console ports were just as, if not better, than the initially launched PC version. The second time we worked on the franchise was on the creation of the “Escape Team” DLC. Working closely with the designers on the team to create the project, including the rebuilding of existing mechanics alongside introducing some new twists into the game.
