onEscapee was developed by Invictus Games, Ltd. and published by the UK-Based (and now defunct) Sadeness Software. The Amiga 1200 release and the PC re-release differ slightly. The player’s health bar, for instance, is square in the Amiga version and rounded in the PC version. The pause menu was also re-designed for the PC version, with the ability to name save slots. The Amiga version, perhaps to cater both to those with expanded memory and those running more streamlined systems, features a “normal” and “fast” mode, with the game running noticeably smoother under “fast” mode. onEscapee’s gameplay is very similar to Another World and Flashback: The Quest for Identity in gameplay and features similar rotoscoped, hand-drawn graphics.
