As a thinking gamer’s game, Don’t Escape: 4 Days In A Wasteland did what I wanted it to do. It made me use my brain and not fists to overcome challenges, had me utilize trial and error, and provided a surprisingly intriguing backdrop to do it all in. While the load times somewhat overstay their welcome, and the game makes things a bit too obvious and negates it’s own sense of challenge on occasion, I still had a good time with it and would easily recommend for anyone looking for a slower paced and methodical end of the world adventure.
Don’t Escape: 4 Days in the Wasteland is a superbly written, clever and well made indie title. Its take on the blending of point and click with survival styles make this a genuinely unique title. Its world building, graphics and sound design all contribute to making Don’t Escape’s world an imposing world to inhabit. Also, the game doesn’t exactly break the bank — at most you can expect to pay around $15, making it great value for money.
