Sony Vita Gets “Escape Plan”, You Get First Impressions [TRAILER]

Share And Comment

Sony Computer Entertainment opened up the war chest this past Tuesday and dropped a peak at one of their first Vita games that looks to have a lot promise. Escape Plan appears to have all of the wonderful silliness and that creepy edge of the recent puzzle-platformers that have come to the PlayStation world as of late. (Remember LIMBO? Yeah, creepy, dark, and black and white.) Escape Plan appears to be taking from previous successes in the genre and adding a bit of comedy to the mix, all while making it available in the palm of your hand.

Escape Plan will feature two hapless characters, Lil and Laarg, who have been captured and need your guidance, skill and problem solving abilities to escape from a dark maze of confusing puzzles and traps. (Seriously, you played LIMBO right?) Escape Plan is boasted to take advantage of the PlayStation Vita’s multi-touch display, rear touch panel and swipe interfaces to help players complete their goals and bring Lil and Laarg to safety. Players can swipe, squeeze, poke and slap these guys to interact and manipulate the environment.

I’m not sure about anyone else, but looking at the trailer below this looks like it’s got some promise and introducing it on the Vita seems to be an interesting way of introducing the power that Vita holds as an interactive device. Let us know what you think!

I started gaming when it was nothing more than green screens and clunky keyboards. Today, I play everything and anything that provides for a gaming experience. Good, bad, indifferent, and some times even ugly. I'm here to tell you whats up.
