Don’t Escape: 4 Days to Survive, the fourth instalment in the popular Don’t Escape series from developer Scriptwelder, is currently 15% off on Steam.
The Earth has been beset upon by the apocalypse after a strange event caused the moon to crack in half. In Don’t Escape: 4 Days to Survive you must help David, a lone survivor who keeps experiencing prophetic dreams, survive through 4 days of bizarre and deadly terror.
The trick to the Don’t Escape series is that they put a spin on the usual ‘escape the room’ games. Instead, you must try your hardest not to escape whatever circumstances you find yourself in.
The first three games in the series can all be played for free in your browser (Flash is required). The first game in the series, known as simply ‘Don’t Escape’, requires you to successfully stop your werewolf-self from escaping a cabin and wreaking havoc on the townsfolk. You can play it here.
The second game, Don’t Escape 2, is set during a zombie apocalypse. However, this time you’re not alone, and you can recruit other survivors to help you fortify a building so that you can survive the zombie horde and the night. You can play it here.
Don’t Escape 3 is arguably the most terrifying game in the series as you wake up, alone, on a spaceship that’s drifting in space. Everyone else seems to be dead, the ship’s computer is counting down to something, and there’s something extremely suspicious about that spacesuit…
You can play Don’t Escape 3 here. Just be aware that, while the game isn’t real-time based, there is a small section at the beginning which will kill you if you don’t complete it in time. Happy not-escaping!
Those who are well-versed with online Flash games may recognise Scriptwelder from the highly acclaimed Deep Sleep series, all of which can be played online for free. You can play Deep Sleep, Deeper Sleep, and The Deepest Sleep by clicking their respective links.
Scriptwelder also made the beautiful A small talk at the back of beyond, a short but sad game about talking to an AI. You can play it here. Just get ready to cry.
Don’t Escape: 4 Days to Survive is currently going for just $12.74 or £9.34, and it’ll be on sale until May 13th. Pick it up at a nice discount while you can!
