Escape from Doom coming 10/10/13 [Universal]


OFFICIAL TRAILER RELEASED

YOU DISTURBED THEIR ETERNAL SLUMBER, YOU EVOKED THEIR VENGEFUL WRATH, NOW YOU MUST ESCAPE FROM DOOM!


Transported back in time to Egypt during the treasure-hunting craze of the 1920s, you barely escape from a crumbling tomb only to find yourself surrounded by the mummified guardians of the stolen treasure. Will you escape with your life?
Or join the ranks of the dead? In this endless runner and first-person shooter mashup, it's up to you to run as far as possible before succumbing to their ceaseless chase. But the power is in your hands! Collect emeralds during your escape to purchase useful weapons and upgrades, like the dual revolvers and crossbow, which will turn the odds in your favor.
Accomplish goals to unlock even more perks! The more you play, the farther you'll run! It's an action game of high adventure right at your fingertips: run, dodge, and shoot your way through savage sandstorms and dusty temples. But be careful, in the cursed desert the treasure hunter is the hunted!

That teaser trailer is pretty; but I have no idea what the game is like. The website doesn't offer much clarification. So far, I'm guessing match-3 puzzle tower defense hybrid.

Yeah... my bet is Into the Dead with a twist. I mean the anubis looking guys should be moving faster than the usual zombie, so there should be a twist for that at least.

Spot on! I posted screenshots but Devs decided to remove them, guess they want to build up excitement or pics were WIP.

Kudos to triggerhappylabs for having great sense of humor " YOU'VE BEEN CURSED! " xD

This looks interesting and if it's anything like Into the dead, then I'll definitely play this one too.

My only complaint would be the name of the game... I mean, you've awakened the mythical ancient Egypt and all you can think of is "Escape from Doom"? This title has no connection to the game.

Agreed, the infinity in place of the double zeros is nice.
