Imagination Is The Only Escape returns on Indiegogo

Game sees new life through crowdfunding

Many years ago, indie developer Luc Bernard conceived of a game centered on a child working to survive the holocaust by retreating into his imagination. It was once planned for Nintendo DS, but for a variety of reasons, it never came to be. 

In the years that followed, Luc put out multiple games across multiple platforms (including PC, Android, iPhone, PS Mobile, and PS3) but Imagination Is The Only Escape has always been in the back of his mind. Thanks to you, he may finally get a shot at it. The game is on Indiegogo right now, complete with beautiful new art direction and proposed launch on PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Ouya. 

The gaming landscape has changed a lot since Imagination Is The Only Escape was first announced, with boundary pushing titles like Cart LifeBraid, Papers Please, Gone Home, Dys4ia, That Dragon Cancer, and many others see critical and (sometimes) commercial success. That gives me all the more hope that Luc will now find an audience for this project To see this pocket of his imagination finally come to life after so many years of remaining dormant would mean a lot to him and to many others.
