So, I missed it by a few days cuz I was out of town but the 9-year anniversary of Escaping the Prison happened recently! To celebrate I’m posting a bunch of things from the remaster of the game. I did this with Breaking the Bank’s anniversary as well!
For those that don’t know, I’m working on a Henry Stickmin finale called Completing the Mission. It will be released on steam in the Henry Stickmin collection, which also features remastered versions of all the games.
I’ll start off with some images!
You might’ve seen this one in a previous newspost but here it is again! I’ve improved on picking colors. Also shading heads.
This is one of the most improved rooms. Everything just looks nicer, and not a grey concrete cube.
The door moved! Also you can see how the colors do so much! Better looking police hats too ;)
Here’s another one that just has too much to even talk about. Notice how the new widescreen format lets you see a lot more of the sides!
Now for some more intense reveals!
Here’s a comparison of the Opacitator scene! Notice how the sound has been improved. Every room has slight background noise. Also notice that I have not updated any of the animations! That would take way too long.
Finally, here’s the big sneak peek!
Lots of things with this! I had to rerecord the cops’ first lines because the original had some annoying background fuzz, but I still tried to make them sound exactly the same. I also wrote my own score for the intro music. Some other songs will be different as well, for one reason or another. Also, I’ve improved the look of the buttons. Oh, I forgot to record it I guess, but all the buttons in Escaping the Prison now have animated rollovers like the newer games. That will be a reveal only in words!
When I made this game I never expected it to turn into a series. I was inspired by a comment my friend left on Breaking the Bank "Better luck getting out of prison then". People liked the games, so I kept making more! It's been a long journey and I'm hoping I do the series justice with Completing the Mission! It'll release someday >:)
