- Version Played: Xbox Series S
A very surreal game. The Artful Escape follows the story of a folk musician who wants to do rock and roll, but doesn’t want to disappoint his town, who expects him to fit into the shoes of his uncle, a legendary folk singer. He gets whisked into space and ends up in a performance across the universe and some wonderful characters who try to convince him to become his “true self”.
On his journey, he will play music across wild and unique lands. These consist mainly of fairly simple platforming segments, but the visual spectacle of each level is enough to keep your attention. There’s lots of creative stuff to see, and it is a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
