Description

vApe Escape is a point-and-click adventure in a science fiction comedy setting. The player takes control of an innocent ape who must escape the sad destiny of becoming a vape dispenser machine for the wealthy hipsters of the universe. The game will take the player across many (read: two) locations on board a space-faring cargo ship transporting vApe dispensers to the galaxy, and features multiple (read: two) endings to the story, depending on how you play it. Since it is imagined as an "interactive comic", you can print out your gameplay in comic-book format once you've finished the game, and put it on your comic-book shelf to impress your friends!

History

The game was created on our first Jamchuck - a "game jam" where we at Gamechuck (and our friends) think of, develop and release a small video game in a very short time. The idea was to create a game in the same style as our other interactive comics (All You Can Eat and The Lot), but much shorter so we can test some new visual ideas (such as a different art style - a digitally drawn comic with full colors) but also some new technical solutions (such as parallaxed comic-book panels).

Features

  • help a downtrodden ape commandeer a human starship IN SPACE
  • print out your gameplay as a comic-book when you're done playing
  • a dystopian science fiction where the apes HAVEN'T won
  • a soundtrack that will haunt you in your most intimate vaping moments
  • be warned though - it's only 5 minutes of gameplay (at best)

About Gamechuck

Boilerplate
Gamechuck is a game development duo that wants to provide innovative and unique gaming experiences. Our vision consists of games where the mechanics are intertwined with the story, the visuals, and the sound. We also spend time thinking of new ways to push the boundaries of existing game genres. Accomplishing the task of creating well rounded games is a complex job, and eager to share their work with the world, we decided to start off with shorter games, but that doesn't mean we don't have illusions of grandeur!
