Escape Plan: Watch the PS Vita Trailer Everyone’s Talking About

Escape Plan for PS Vita

Hi everyone and guten tag from Cologne, Germany! Some of you may know me as one of the collaborative partners with SCEA Santa Monica Studios for the award-winning PlayStation Network exclusives, Fat Princess and Fat Princess: Fat Roles. I’m not only here to introduce Fun Bits Interactive to you, but to also introduce Escape Plan, as one of the upcoming titles for the PlayStation Vita. Escape Plan made its debut on Tuesday at the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe press conference and I have to express how thrilled I have been to see how well it has been received by colleagues and media alike throughout the week.

Placing bite-sized entertainment in the palm of your hands, Escape Plan features two hapless characters, Lil and Laarg, who have been captured and need your influence, skill and brainpower to escape from a dark labyrinth of irreverent puzzles and traps. Escape Plan takes advantage of the PlayStation Vita’s multi-touch display, rear touch panel and swipe interfaces. Players can swipe, squeeze, poke and slap these guys to interact and manipulate the environment and help Lil and Laarg survive each deadly room before their captor and nemesis recycles them and turns them into his minions … or sheep.

Escape Plan for PS Vita

For those of you who haven’t seen anything on Escape Plan yet, watch the video above for a peek of what is in store for you next spring on PS Vita.

I hope you are excited for Escape Plan as much as we are! Lil and Laarg will be as fun to watch in victory as they will in the hilarious agony of defeat. We look forward to reaching out to our fans and will continue to keep you posted on anything related to Escape Plan, so please continue to check back here on the PlayStation.Blog for more information!

Question for Chris Millar: Does the number on their stomach increase every time they die? :p

    + Chris Millar on August 20th, 2011 at 9:11 am said:

    Hey FearMonkey, you got it – their #’s increase with every splat.


+ SpyDudeFX on August 18th, 2011 at 2:04 pm said:

Looks great but what happened to Fat Princess? Is it done? No patches? updates? Anything? 14 months waiting and no news :/


+ remanutd5 on August 18th, 2011 at 2:07 pm said:

at 15 , increase or decrease ? i thought it meant the number of lives they had left


+ FearMonkey on August 18th, 2011 at 2:12 pm said:

@17 – the trailer starts with them at zero, so I assumed they start with zero and it goes up. Part of the score you get on the level might be based on how low the number is on their stomach upon completion. Was my guess anyway.


+ remanutd5 on August 18th, 2011 at 2:14 pm said:

at 18 , yea that could be a possibility too , hope they mention something about it today


+ Carl-G on August 18th, 2011 at 2:15 pm said:

Bring it to PS3’s PSN soon to? :P


+ D-Meat on August 18th, 2011 at 2:21 pm said:

+ Conaaando on August 18th, 2011 at 2:21 pm said:

What a GREAT game! Reminds me of Machinarium… :-) I loved it! Will definitely get this one!


+ boxmyth on August 18th, 2011 at 2:24 pm said:

This looks awesome. Will pick it up with the Vita for sure.

Also, new video player doesn’t seem to like Chrome…

+ Kxpuc on August 18th, 2011 at 2:26 pm said:

+ DaveedT13 on August 18th, 2011 at 2:35 pm said:

Looks great and fun, but I’m not interested at all into handheld gaming…so, will pass… : /


+ Seahawk313 on August 18th, 2011 at 2:39 pm said:

Looks really cool… so many awesome games coming to the vita!!


+ KILLO31 on August 18th, 2011 at 2:41 pm said:

Looks so awsome.


+ plaztiksyke on August 18th, 2011 at 3:00 pm said:

Looks really neat. I hope that the facial animations are as detailed in-game as they are in the cinematic.

Will puzzles have multiple solutions like Stacking?

Will it support saving in the cloud storage and resuming on PS3?


+ theXsilentXchild on August 18th, 2011 at 3:16 pm said:

that everyone is talking about? Never heard of this game till today. Looks cool though. Wish it was on the psn. Those Germans sure have a latex fetish!

+ BG808s on August 18th, 2011 at 3:40 pm said:

That’s an awesome looking game, very cool and original!! Unfortunately I have zero interest in portable gaming devices, so PLEASE make a PS3 version of it for those of us not into that!!


+ SoleAddict23 on August 18th, 2011 at 3:58 pm said:

What should do is allow for PS3 owners to play their games on their PSVita and their Vita games on their PS3, of course without the need of any device being connected to the internet, or the game being in either device or either device being in an unuseable state like how the PS3 is currently when it’s in Remote Play mode. You would need to own a PS3 and a Vita and the game on one of the consoles. This would increase PS3 and Vita sales as well as sales for the games. Having to own a copy of each game on each device is a HUGE F You to consumers and extremely greedy and uncalled for.

Also, on Vita there must be multiplatform games like Street Fighter X Tekken for Vita owners that don’t own a PS3/360. Exclusive, completely new entries in current franchises like Uncharted: Golden Abyss for PS3/360 owners because PS3/360 will have no reason to get a port of a game they can get on their PS3/360. Also, new IPs.

This looks so original and clever. Nice game Sony!


+ Link01 on August 18th, 2011 at 4:07 pm said:

Extremely frustrating and hilarious .. I love it!


+ Type-F- on August 18th, 2011 at 4:10 pm said:

When i first saw the trailer i thought it was a deformed PATAPON.


+ Tomm4118 on August 18th, 2011 at 4:18 pm said:

This is the kind of game that’s going to put the PSVita a step in the right direction. It’s good to see that Sony is really thinking this through and is commited to delivering true portable, casual, fun games to the system.

I for one was very excited to see them make this announcement. I was a bit worried at the fact that Sony would get too carried away with trying to emphasize the whole “Consol Quality” crap, and slowly loose their support in the system, but this has me thinking otherwise. The Smartphone guys can eat their words for all I care. Vita is really proving it’s the ultimate handheld device to beat.


+ Berae on August 18th, 2011 at 5:14 pm said:

This is game like that that will make me want a PS Vita. It looks very nice.


+ DZORMAGEN on August 18th, 2011 at 5:21 pm said:

This game reminds me of LIMBO, and that’s a good thing!


+ sfarrar on August 18th, 2011 at 5:37 pm said:

LIMBO meets Nightmare before Christmas. I love it.


+ Alyyse on August 18th, 2011 at 5:37 pm said:

this game looks amazing. i’m so ready for the the vita


+ blackghost826 on August 18th, 2011 at 5:39 pm said:

Escape Plan looks fantastic, same with almost all the other upcoming PS Vita games!

For everyone asking when it will be released, it says at the bottom of the post “next spring on the PS Vita”.

Thank you Sony for making the best games and consoles! Keep it up!
