Escape: Sierra Leone is an exploration-based first person survival/exploration game set during the Sierra Leone civil war. It is truly open and allows the player limitless freedom. No invisible walls, no set quests, and a dynamic story.

Post news Report RSS Escape: Sierra Leone Alpha Demo Uploaded to Indie DB!

After several months of work, I've gotten to the state where I can release a playable build. It's still an early alpha, and has a few issues that need to be ironed out in later builds, but anyone eager to try out the gameplay style can grab this build for free.

First thing is first, for those of you who want to start downloading the files now, jump over to the downloads section and download both parts. Once you have the two packages, extract and merge them together and you'll be ready to play. You'll need a direct X11 compatible GPU, and various other requirements listed here.

If you enjoy the alpha demo, please consider backing our Kickstarter to help fund future developments, and prepurchase the game at a discount price. Please remember that the alpha demo is a small part of the game, and a very early WIP, it has various bugs and is missing a lot of features. It's in no way final build quality. Also, it's not the most user-friendly yet, which is something that will be improved later. Some of the features/content planned for the beta can be found here.

If you wish, browse around the mod page, it has new images and videos up, and I'll soon be posting some let's plays of the game from various youtubers. I also plan to release a news article in a month detailing the next course of action, which could vary greatly depending how the funding goes. Thanks for the support!

Since I can't support you on Kickstarter myself, I'll share it to my friends (And stuff)! Don't know if it'll do much or if they'll back it up themselves, but it doesn't hurt to try :D

Thanks, any support is great :)

Even just playing the game and giving feedback helps.

Cool game. I wish it had a tutorial. I couldn't find any info about the controlls. I was able to kill 2 people but didn't know how to heal myself. I also don't know how to use objects like the bottle. Some ingame info would help me.

I got a youtube channel and will upload my ingame videos there. I hope its okay for you.

It's an early alpha, so no tutorial is implemented. However, the readme file and Part 1 download page: Indiedb.com

both have extensive control lists and gameplay tactics/tips.

As for uploading videos of gameplay, that's more than fine with me :)
