Escape: Forced Overtime is one of those games that was far, far better than I thought it would be. The thing about that is the whole time I was playing the game and kind of fighting with the controls, but still having a good time. I knew that this game would be very divisive and that for every person like myself who was enjoying it, there would be another that hated it and I get that. While it is a game, I found enjoyable, I can see why some people would get frustrated, turn it off, and vow never to come back and play this again.
I’m Not Even Supposed To Be Here Today!
How about that for an awesome reference? If you get that you are a fellow Clerks fan and we can be friends. There is not exactly a ton of story in Escape: Forced Overtime, but just like Dante in Clerks, our main character is at work when she is not supposed to be and it turns into a real nightmare for her. She ends up “abducted” and tied up and now she needs to escape her workplace before her captor gets some lewd ideas.
If I had to compare the gameplay of this to another game, I think it would have to be Octodad: Dadliest Catch. I know that sounds like a very strange comparison, but please hear me out. There are two gameplay styles on offer in Escape: Forced Overtime. One has you tied up and laying down, the other tied up, but you are standing and can walk. This is best described as a physics-based game.
You are always trying to find your way to a knife so that you can cut yourself loose, it does make sense. Anyway, when you are laying down, you have to roll around the floor and navigate your way around the workspace which is easier said than done. When you are standing it is the same kind of thing, but you have platforming to do. It controls very strangely and takes a while to get used to it. I got it pretty quickly, but I can see this being a frustrating time for some people.
Don’t Stop, Wiggle, Wiggle!
Visually the office that you are in is pretty basic and bare-bones, but the chick you are playing as in Escape: Forced Overtime is pretty hot.
You have some pretty basic customization options to play around with too which is fun. The way her boobs wiggle and jiggle as she is trying to get out is pretty awesome and the bits of lewd content that are here are very welcomed.
I can hand on heart see why this is a game that some people would find more frustrating than fun. I though had a lot of fun, there are a ton of levels and I did not make it all the way to the last one, but I am pretty sure I will come back to this at some point. I do think that Escape: Forced Overtime is worth a try if you liked the strange controls of a game like Octodad.
- I liked the idea of being captured and having to escape
- There are many different levels
- There are two ways to play
- I thought the girl was pretty hot
- There is not much in the way of storytelling here
- The controls do take a long time to get the hang of
