Publisher Annapurna Interactive revealed today that The Artful Escape is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on September 9 — and it is joining the Game Pass catalogue on day one!
Developed by the indie studio Beethoven and Dinosaur, the game was announced way back at Xbox’s E3 2017 conference as “The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti”. It was later reintroduced during Xbox’s X019 event with the updated title.
A teenage guitar prodigy sets out on a psychedelic, multidimensional journey to inspire his stage persona and confront the legacy of a dead folk legend. Starring voice performances by Michael Johnston, Caroline Kinley, Lena Headey, Jason Schwartzman, Mark Strong, and Carl Weathers.
great preview, and was super interesting how you went into the developer’s history! Been waiting years for this too, glad to see it finally coming out pretty soon.
And yeah, Annapurna is really bringing their film side clout to their games. 12 Minutes has an incredible cast, and I was thoroughly surprised this one has some big names too. Although, I did notice your very understandable Lena “Headley” haha
