Water Escape!

Recent progress:

- Added health

- Added some new tools

-Added a pause menu

- Added treasure chests


Hopemans live peacefully in the depths of their world, until some day, something bad happens. While Blumber (the only hopeman who isn't afraid of water) is in the shower, the water starts to raise. And hopemans don't like water! The only thing they can do is leave their homes and escape!


The world where hopemans live is a strange planet. There is not much water in the planets surface, but the center of the planet is full of water. There are many different landscapes. Greenish forests, snowy hills, hot places with lava... But hopemans are only familiar with the underground world...


Hopemans are creatures that live in the planet of hopemans. They are very persistent creatures who fight for what they love.
Hopemans are divided in to different clans. Red, Blue, Yellow and Green. Usually they are enemies of each other.

Gameplay and game modes

Here is an early gameplay video:

Escape mode

In the escape mode the goal is just escape the water and get to the goal before other players. You can prevent other players from winning by using many tools. And with the help of the tools you can progress faster and reach the goal before others.


In the deathmach mode the water is not your main focus. Now you just have to get rid of all the other players, so you can live in peace and... escape in peace... Use a large variety of dangerous tools and blow the others to the skies!


In the campaign mode there is a big world with many levels to beat. There is a story and world map. This mode is only in single player. 

And... You can play alone or with some friends! (Only escape mode and campaign have single player)


You control 2 hopemans. Use different tools and help each other of you to get to the safety before you drown. Because in single player mode the water raises faster!


There can be up to 4 players. All of them have a team of 2 hopemans. They can try to prevent other players from winning.


Players can use many different tools that help them to escape. These tools can be used currently (you can suggest more):

  • Dynamite
  • Bomb
  • Hopebomb
  • Missile
  • Jetpack
  • Ladder
  • Shovel
  • Grappling hook
  • Teleporter
  • Videogame
  • Health potion
  • Lifebuoy
  • Snorkel
  • Rain dance
  • Water gun

Work in progress - Approximately 40% Done

The water is raising! There is now water! I will make it look better, but this is what it looks like now.

- Added water.

Added auto-tiling. It still needs some improvements...

Now the players lose health in the water. But they can use the new tool: snorkel!
Added other tools too.


Added a water speed meter. It shows how fast the water is raising. And it increases all the time!

Working on the menu system...

I added a pause menu. Do you like the design?`

Did you get stuck McMason? You can cut the rope pressing left mouse button! He still needs to practice using the grappling hook... = )
Now the players hold the items in their hands.

If you have some time, use your shovel to find treasure chests! They have more tools!
Also, added "notifications".

If the numbers that show how many tools are left are distracting, tell me.

New tool: Water gun!
I have finished the 15 main tools. But I have so many ideas for new tools that I will add many more when the game is finished.

Now up to 4 players can play!

Also added some music and a cave background.

Added a goal flag.

The snow world has been discovered.  And demo is coming soon! I just need to fix some bugs, make some levels and some other things.
