A downloadable game for Windows

The zombie apocalypse devasted large areas of the world, our two protagonists survived till now and reside in a trailerpark near a city. A radio call reached them with the message that there will be a space rocket leaving the planet to reach the moon base station. But to get to the space rocket, they need to fight their way through the city to the launch site. There is one downside: The space rocket has only one place left. Who will be the one, able to survive the journey and leave the planet for a better future on the moon? Who will shoot his way to the moon?


About

The Escape is a local multiplayer co-op/pvp 2.5D side scroller game with just one level. It was created during the GitHub Game Off Jam 2020. 
The player who will arrive the space rocket entrance door first at the end will win this game. But fighting alone could be hard. The elevator at the end which will bring you to the rocket entrance will only start if both players are on the elevator. One exception: if one player is already dead, it will start with just one player.

If one player dies during the game, the other player has the chance to shoot his way to the rocket which will flight him/her to the moon.

If time is up, both players die.

So choose your tactic wisely...
