About

Lost Vikings met Sin City, or is it Fear&Loathing in Las Vegas?

STORY

Guide a monkey, horse and a rhino through challenging puzzle, and discover the roots of their relationship through a full-blown comic book backstory.

From left to right: Spooner, Tent and Husk.
From left to right: Spooner, Tent and Husk.

We can't give too much away, but it all started the moment Husk stole some sweet honey.

Why on earth does an animal puzzle game have a mature age rating?
We don't want to spoil anything, but buckle up, it gets weird!

GAMEPLAY

The three playable characters are a monkey (Husk), a horse (Spooner) and a rhino (Tent). 

Each character has several abilities, and by combining their powers with one of their allies, they create a second tier of abilities. These will be necessary to get all three characters through the levels.

COMIC

The complete version of this Comic/Game hybrid lets you enjoy a 150-page comic by comic book artist David Bols and gives you the amazing story of No Way Out written by Sven Van de Perre.

WHY KICKSTARTER?

As a small indie team, we are very focused on bringing out the best of No Way Out, and giving it all we've got. At this point in development, we have our fundamentals. Why do we need Kickstarter then? Kickstarter will help us finalize and polish the game and add the finishing touches for a high quality result. It also gives us the opportunity to communicate with the backers and supporters. We sincerly hope to reach the stretch goal and with it, get the opportunity to expand the whole game experience.

In no way can we do this without you. We need your help.
Thanks for reading this far and leave a comment or a share this project.

Risks and challenges

Our team has a great passion for video games, especially for No Way Out, so we expect to be able to complete this game in time! However, we are a small team, and should any of us get ill, it can have an impact on the release date. Don't worry we are in a great health!
