I love a good game that takes a unique idea and runs with it. And The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti looks to be a surreal classic in the making for fans of adventure games. Just the few screenshots and trailer that I saw have me sold, and I barely know much about the game beyond a very basic plot. That said, I look forward to when the Kickstarter for this title launches on March 1st.

The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti

The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti follows the titular character as he strives to be a musician in his own right but his father’s legacy is keeping him from finding his own path to stardom. And so begins what I can only assume as an acid trip down awesomeville. Whether I decide to back this one or not I know that I’ve got to keep a close eye on it as I love the premise and hopefully I’ll know more in a couple weeks time as to take the plunge or not. Until then, watch the trailer below and decide for yourself.
