Hi, I’m Johnny Galvatron and I work at Beethoven and Dinosaur. For the past two centuries we have worked on our psychedelic rock opera and platform musical narrative adventure called The Artful Escape. Pre-order it from the Microsoft Store (Argentina, chili, Colombia and Mexico).
The development of The Artful Escape it’s been like an impromptu Pink Floyd progressive rock session. It has been an experience. With all the support of Annapurna Interactive, the game is finally finished and is now available for pre-order. Get ready to play it on September 9, that is … in a week!
The game follows the story of Francis Vendetti the day before his first concert. In an attempt to escape his uncle’s musical legacy, the teenage guitar prodigy sets out on a psychedelic journey to inspire his new stage persona. This fun adventure will take you through robbed opera houses, melodic alien landscapes and the impossible depths of the Cosmic Extraordinary.
Being an adventure game, you will find a lot of dialogue, so much that it was a real madness to voice all the characters, but we did it anyway! The game stars Michael Johnston as Francis Vendetti and Caroline Kinley as Violetta. Lena Headey plays a huge, asymmetrical floating space head. Jason Schwartzman plays the role of the brain in an aquarium over a flotilla of goldfish fins. Mark Strong plays the greatest amusement park designer in the universe and Carl Weathers plays a glamorous blues-inspired glam performer who goes beyond the stars.
The Artful Escape deals with the aspects that surround the personality of an artist: images, narrative, rumors, fashion, lighting, etc. It’s a game that will put your inspiration to work. In this game, you don’t have to pay attention to what people think of you. Just do what you like on wild alien cliffs. We gave everything we had into this title and we hope you enjoy it! Pre-order it from the Microsoft Store (Argentina, chili, Colombia and Mexico).
