I am enjoying a lot the game. Thanks for sharing the demo. 

I discovered this game in the Facebook of the "Lisboa Games Week" where its available a video of the game https://fb.watch/efrwjkaMXM/. I suggest having this video available in the game website http://rootingtech.com.

Tenho mais alguns comentários relativamente ao website do jogo :

- Em ABOUT US têm tags HTML esquecidas: </p> <p>.

- Os Foruns no website paracem work-in-progress e por isso sugiro que seja inibido o acesso a esta área do site até que alguém o possa dinamizar.

- Na SHOP quando se carrega em XBOX, PS4 e PC/MAC nada acontece, o que é natural uma vez que o jogo ainda não saiu. Sugiro para já colocar ali um link para a DEMO e a data prevista de lançamento por consola.

- A NEWSLETTER em todo o website tem a mensagem de erro: [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"] não deixando subscrevê-la.

Experimentei o acima com o Microsoft Edge e Google Chrome e o comportamento do website foi o mesmo.

As minhas sugestões acima são detalhes... mais uma vez muitos parabéns pelo jogo e boa sorte para o lançamento.

Olá Pcarmo!

Muito obrigado pelo seu tempo e também pelo seus comentários. Acebei seguindo as tuas sugestões no website e realmente ficou melhor. Ainda tenho que trabalhar muito nele, mas assim pelo menos não fica com cara de abandonado.


Way to easy but cool idea. Also closed the 1st upstairs door and the game broke; wouldn't let me interact with anything so I had to restart.

Hi! Thanks for your comment! We are working on adding different difficulties! And we are also working on fixing that bug. Hope you enjoyed it!




Спасибо! (hopefully Google Translate did not let me down!)


Я жду полную версию, мне интересно, кто же в той пещере рычал=)


Didn't let me down!) I should have written in English right away.)

:D Hopefully you'll see what's or who's behind that voice! 

Thanks for your comments! 


It looks interesting. I'll download and play your game right away.


Thanks! Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed doing it!

awesome game , graphics is great , but when i reach the cave the game ends , and i cant find the last two scenes in the other thumbnail pictures here, are those levels in constructio or i eventually failed the gamein cave ?? also i cant pickup the axe ., the puzzles were awesome , smooth gameplay . and i really like the thing that it had no english ,lol, really gave an awesome experience of playing a foreign country game with totally different language .

Hi! Thank you so much! It really means a lot, especially the fact that you liked that the game is in Portuguese! 

No, you got it right! Those 2 thumbnails are not in the demo, it's what comes next! ;) 

We are working on the full game, hope you play it!


It's easy and I like it

We're so glad you liked it!  We're working on new puzzles. Thank you so much for playing our demo!


its not letting me open it on my Mac. its saying that I don’t have permission when its my Mac...

Thanks for letting us know!  We'll see what the problem is and get back to you when it's fixed. 


If you're getting the error that says, "The application "Escape" can't be opened," that's a common issue on itch.io games:

1. Right click on the app icon and press "Show Package Contents"

2. Click on the "Contents" folder, then the "MacOS" folder. 

3. Keep that other window open, and open terminal.

4. Type "chmod +x " (Without the quotation marks, and a space after the +x. DO NOT PRESS ENTER YET!!)

5. Drag the file in the finder window (should be called "Escape_1.1" for this game) into the terminal window, then press enter.

6. Exit those windows and click on the app.

7.  Allow the app to run in settings.

Thank you for sharing! Did you enjoy the demo?

Yeah, It was cool. I have no criticism, good job.

hope version english ..but os easy puzzle game.... no stress

Hi! Thank you for your comment! Our idea was to make a game in our mother tongue but we will think about that! Thanks again for playing our demo!


Hello, I played this game and I really enjoyed it, it looked great, I liked the puzzles they were neat, one thing I'd like to mention is that the movement keys are Arrow buttons in default for some reason so if you change the default to WASD then it'd be better, over all good work :)

Hello Stella, thank you very much for your suggestion! I will change the default to WASD . Thanks again for taking the time to play our demo and making a gameplay video!

Thank you very much for your time and the video, it was very cool of you! Watching the video made me already think of some improvements (mainly the text).

This is a big push to finalize the game.

Hi, I'm CarioCityGamer, and just last week I had the honor of playing your game. I'll be playing the update as soon as possible. The puzzles are challenging but fun. The atmospheric music is on point making me a bit scared. And the voice acting is one of the best I've heard so far. Keep up the good work and I can't wait for the finale product.
