A Way Out
A Way Out is a special sort of game, in that it can only be played co-operatively. Mechanically, it’s a combination between Telltale’s choose-your-own-adventure style of gameplay and frenetic action that is sort-of akin to games like Army of Two.
The central premise is that you and your buddy play two prisoners. At first, you orchestrate a prison break, but you soon begin to understand how their paths interweave. They undertake a dangerous mission and, as they move towards the end of the game, get to know more about one another’s personal lives. There’s also this sense that tragedy is on the horizon and, well, that’s always a special kind of feeling.
