PC Windows Mac OS Linux IOS iPhone

Forward: Escape the Fold is a retro-styled, simple, and bite-sized roguelike/roguelite game that is meant to be played in short sessions. It offers fun decision making and the procedurally-generated replayability that fans of the genre crave. The game is very relaxed, offering a very simple premise - enter a procedurally-generated dungeon and fight your way forward until you escape or die. The game's rules are simple, but your choices are carefully considered, and the depth of the game is more vast than expected, creating an interesting dynamic of weighing benefits with the sacrifices made to get those benefits. Combat is extremely simple and any time you come across an enemy that you can attack or be attacked by, your health is reduced by the damage number on the enemy card, and the enemy disappears. Your goal is simply to have more health at the end of each stage than the boss card's damage number.
