    Can’t decide which idea

    Trying to think ideas for the game, I believe that Escape is a hard theme because is an open and closed theme at the same time, you have freedom in a lot of variables but you cant escape from making a game where you are Escaping from someone/something to reach some goal, or at least I lack of imagination.

    I thought about making some wordplay like E-Scape or Esc-Ape but don’t think it will be so cool.

    So, in the end, I decide to use the word like it is and make an Escape game, the first idea I had was to make something philosophical like playing a game where you want to achieve total freedom but that was impossible and the idea of the game was to transmit exactly that, total freedom don’t exists (sad game).

    After thinking more ideas, I decided to make something really simple and try to finish it, so my last idea is a simple game like Canabalt where you play as a Vampire escaping from the Sun light, with some features like Robot Unicorn Attack where you can dash in the air.

    Lets see what happens, maybe I get a better idea later and abandon this game to do the other one.
