Play as Francis Vendetti, a teenage guitar prodigy, who is thrusted into a psychedelic journey to discover who he is in The Artful Escape, a Rock Opera inspired platformer. 

Francis must battle with the legacy of a dead folk legend, along with his own insane imagination. Francis must become who he really is, his stage persona, as he converses with all sorts of strange characters, from oddball villagers to reality-defying monstrosities. Your persona will match your own journey, from its oddball beginnings to the look and style you hope to achieve, and face off against foes in musical battles and you traverse worlds so surreal.

The Artful Escape is by indie developer Beethoven & Dinosaur, and is set to release sometime in 2020 for the PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. 

Developer Quote

• Close Encounters of the Third Kind-style musical jams.
• Create your own stage persona from the sci-fi beginnings of your backstory to the glitter in your facepaint.
• Converse with all manner of being: disenchanted publicans, nostalgic villagers, lumbering alien wildlife, and reality-defying behemoths.
• Walk, run, double jump, air walk, light cannon, trip, and dance across the multiverse. Traverse landscapes made of sound, triggered by your movements, as if the world itself were an instrument.
