Earlier this year, veteran indie developer scriptwelder released Don't Escape: 4 Days to Survive. The point-and-click adventure, about a post-apocalyptic mystery and prophetic dreams, has quickly become a hit with both players and critics. But that's not where the series began. Fans have asked for a way to collect and compile the original three web games, and now we're happy to say they'll soon be able to.
Now available on Steam for $4.99 with a 10% launch discount, Don't Escape Trilogy is an anthology (no new content) of the original three standalone games in scriptwelder's cult classic series. Additionally, if you own either Don't Escape: 4 Days to Survive or Don't Escape Trilogy, you'll be able to complete your collection by getting the other game at a discount by picking up the Don't Escape Bundle.
Played by millions around the world since the first game released in 2013, the Don't Escape games took a popular formula, the escape-the-room genre, and inverted it. Instead of finding a way out, you were trying to keep yourself securely *in*. Each atmospheric point-and-click title is a self-contained story. In the first Don't Escape, players are a werewolf, and must think creatively to lock themselves inside a remote cabin to protect the townsfolk. In Don't Escape 2, the player needs to fortify against a zombie horde, while also contending with the fact that their friend has been bitten. And in Don't Escape 3, players awaken on a seemingly abandoned spaceship with no memories, but haunting visions give a warning.
The Don't Escape Trilogy for Steam doesn't contain any new content, but it does preserve the original web games in one package for fans, and includes Steam achievements. (The original games will always be free online for as long as the platform supports them.) If you're looking to complete your collection of scriptwelder's series on Steam, or if you've played Don't Escape: 4 Days to Survive and are looking to experience the rest, this is a way for you to do so while supporting the developer. We hope you'll consider checking out the Don't Escape Trilogy when it releases later this summer!
