The Artful Escape Brings Psychedelic Visuals and Rock Music to Xbox One

Perhaps the most bizarre, yet intriguing game shown during Microsoft’s E3 2017 Press Conference was The Artful Escape.

The brief footage shown for the Xbox One console launch exclusive was a dazzling array of bright colors, rock music, and trippy visuals featuring a young bespeckled boy. The description of the game from publisher Annapurna Interactive is just as colorful.

 The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti is a video game about great expectations, famous folk singers, lingering shadows, space Gods, hallucinogens, individuality, reptile shops, and wild imaginations. It’s an action, adventure, exploration, narrative driven, musical-laser-light-battle kind of game and is the debut of release from Beethoven & Dinosaur.

Still confused? Check out the announcement trailer below.



My Opinion:

I have no idea what type of game this will be, but it certainly looks different. I’m digging the psychedelic vibe it has going on though.
