ZEscape Early Access release


Get ready to escape this Friday (July 20th) as ZEscape hits Early Access on Steam!

Huge thanks to the community for helping out with reporting bugs and issues during the closed alpha tests.
ZEscape Early Access is released on Steam this Friday for PC, 64bit Windows.
Here is a gameplay trailer with some video footage that was captured during the latest closed alpha:

The Early Access build contains a few highly requested features such as RTV system, map voting at the end of levels, and in-game voice chat.

Madhouse Software has partnered up with Nitrado, bringing official dedicated servers online and available for the release on Steam this Friday, as well as offering players/communities to rent their own dedicated ZEscape servers.
Having your own dedicated servers gives communities the advantage of managing it with their own admins/mods. (Note that the admin system is very bare bone at the moment as it is being developed and refined.)

One of the first maps ever designed for ZEscape makes a return in the Early Access release.
Prepare to return to Dark Yard.

Overlooking the construction area in the center of the map.

This particular map has gone trough a lot of re-designs during the years and still has a lot of rough edges.
It is the first of the "classic" ZEscape maps to make a return, but will be quickly followed by more in coming content updates for the game.

Phenomenal idea, ZE in CSS is one of my favorite past times in video games, you guys have some great potential on your hands to even expand what was already a fantastic game mode.
