Means of Escape is a new IP currently in development by Pub Games. In Means of Escape, players must guide the out-of-control suit (and its hapless occupant) through to safety, using both puzzle and twitch-gaming skills to negotiate the hazardous environments. The game's unfortunate protagonist, Terrence, has purchased the latest model of the Means Of Escape evacuation suit (MOE) - the latest must-have corporate gadget of the near future. CEOs and VIPs invest in the suit as a form of personal protection, but little does Terrence know the suit often causes more trouble than it solves! As a result, Terrence will have to suffer the suit's over-zealous fits of mayhem and carnage whenever it deems he is in danger - players control the suit by placing actions for the suit to perform in advance, offering a unique twist to a much-loved style of game

What is Means of Escape?
In the not-too-distant future CEOs, VIPs, and other corporate bigwigs have invested in specially designed suits called the “Means of Escape” (MOE) suit. The idea of this suit is to immediately get the wearer out of danger as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, under certain circumstances, the suit can into a “premature evacuation” mode whereby the suit immediately tries to “rescue” the inhabitant from non-detrimental dangers by throwing him or her into danger.

Means of Escape

Developed using Epic’s Unreal Development Kit, Means of Escape is a forward-planning puzzle platformer. Rather than control the MOE suit in the traditional platforming sense, players must place actions for the suit to perform in advance, dropping markers to jump, slide, and shoot rockets throughout the environment.
