Buy Escape: Sierra Leone on Steam!

Welcome to the official Escape: Sierra Leone website!

It's a little barren right now, but like the game, it's a currently a work in progress! Watch this space for updates in Q2-Q3 2017!
 

WHERE CAN I BUY ESCAPE: SIERRA LEONE?

Currently the game is only sold on Steam (see the nice big green button on the top of the page for a link). There will be an eventual DRM-free product sold on this page for the same price, but it could be a couple months after release. There is also the possibility of a hard-copy collectors edition at some point after the 1.0 release.
 

PLAYING THE GAME

E:SL is a pretty hard game, be prepared to die pretty quick the first few plays. I highly recommend you read the "Guide" provided with the game. You can find the guide in the main menu, on the right set of options, near the bottom of the list. Read it through and it will answer most of your questions about the gameplay mechanics.
 

TACTICS

Avoid combat at first, try to find a safehouse and firearm BEFORE going up against even a single enemy. Even with a gun, avoid going rambo unless you like to die. Try to pick off enemies one at a time, without engaging multiple at once. Learn from your mistakes, if one area is too hard, wait until you're better equipped to handle it. In the end have fun, that's the point! You can carry 2 large items (rifle, gas can, or torch), and 12 small items such as food, drinks, or handguns. Choose what you carry wisely. Diamonds do not take up inventory space, so grab every one you can find.
 

GOALS

Your only goal is to escape the island, there are multiple ways to accomplish this. I won't tell you them and ruin the fun, but explore around and figure it out!
 

SAFEHOUSES

The only way to save your game is to use the bed at a safehouse. If your character is tired, he will sleep and time will pass. You can reload a save any time from the main menu. If you die, then you will have to either load a save, or start a new game, there are no autosaves or quicksaves. You're limited to 10 save slots, so use them wisely.
 

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Currently the hardware requirements are a little steep, as much optimization needs to be done. Currently only Windows 7-10 is supported, and only the 64 bit versions. I'd recommend at least an Nvidia 760/Radeon 7870 GPU, and a quad core CPU running at 3.2GHz or more. You will also need around 20-25GB of HDD space. Again, system requirements are high, but are going to be lowered a lot as development progresses.

VEHICLES

These need fuel and won't work without it. Every vehicle has a fuel gauge, so watch it closely. To successfully escape, you must have enough fuel in your vehicle (usually over 3/4 of a tank will be sufficient). Currently vehicle weapons cannot be reloaded, so once one of their weapons runs out of ammo, that's it.
 

FINAL NOTES

This is an Early Access game, meant to give a taste of the gameplay mechanics. There are many issues that must be addressed. The Early Access builds do not in any way represent the final quality of this game, and it will be vastly improved and expanded upon in later revisions. The main goal of Early Access is to allow community feedback to shape the game and help it develop into what the players want to see.
 

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • This will be updated as big issues are brought to my attention during Early Access.
