Escape: Close Call is an adrenaline pumping driving game which rewards near crashes with style points, encouraging risk and thrill seeking. Escape enemy vehicles increasing in difficulty while completing missions, maneuvering through the landscape, and earning coins to upgrade your vehicle with weapons.


Escape was originally created to be a tense game that's also addictive and goal oriented, and once a proof of concept video was made it was greenlit on Steam Greenlight in less than a week, reaching top 10 status out of all games on Greenlight. It was released on Steam two months later, on the 24th of March, 2016, and has been getting regular updates since. A VR update was added, and more modes are being prototyped currently, including a multiplayer addon.


  • Steep learning curve. Easy to learn, hard to master.
  • Cinematic Close Calls when barely managing to evade enemy vehicles.
  • Standoff mode where you challenge enemy cars as a matador.
  • Game mechanics that reward thrill seeking and risk.
  • Diverse power-ups that can be upgraded and personalized.
  • Novel sense of progression through unlocking stages.
  • 25 different vehicles that the player can drive, each with its own mechanics and advantageous properties.
  • Achievements and leaderboards to compare times and scores with friends or globally.
