Escape Plan Control Scheme Revealed

Sony Puzzle PS Vita News Gamescom 2011

During Sony’s Gamescon conference, a game called Escape Plan was announced. In fact, Travis wrote the article right here. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a plethora of information that came with the announcement. However, a preview of the game from IGN has revealed the control scheme used to play the game.

To put it simply, the control scheme will be void of physical controls. So that means the game will be controlled through the touch screen and rear touchpad. It seems that those two functions of the Vita is the main focus of this game, considering there was no mention of the use of motion control or the cameras. The analogue stick was used for camera control, but that could be removed from the final build.

The control scheme wasn’t the only information revealed. The game is being produced by those who developed Fat Princess (with some developers on the team working with the PSP version) and the game takes on a very humourous tone, including the deaths, being described as “heinous and unusual”.

Escape Plan is a puzzle game where you control two characters, Lil and Laarg, throughout different environments ‘through any means necessary’. This is an early build because they were locking their lips and throwing away the key when it came to release and distribution.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
