Escape Velocity

A curated Collection of Fantasy and Science Fiction Media

Desperate to save the life of their ill father, two brothers embark on a perilous journey to obtain a magical medicine. Along the way, they have to work together to overcome obstacles, as well as their own shortcomings.

I liked this game. Neither the plot nor the characters are particularly deep, but the story is skilfully supported by the unique game mechanics and the atmosphere of the art. Several times I was truly intrigued by the landscapes through which I passed, and I enjoyed most of the puzzles (even though they were largely simple). Only once was I taken out of the story, in this case by physical improbabilities that went beyond my suspension of disbelief. However, I expect that most will be able to condone this particular part of the game too.


I played this game on my desktop, both with Jasmijn and on my own. I can recommend both playing styles, each having their own merits.


A nice little story. A fairytale to escape into, with both cheerful and dark elements.
