FORWARD: Escape the Fold was created to be the perfect bitesized roguelike dungeon crawler. Choose your champion and face a relentless crawl through the card-based dungeons, collect items to power your abilities and defeat the gruesome monsters facing you. But keep going FORWARD!
- Unique Progression System: Make your way through the dungeons by choosing a path from 3 cards at every turn but choose wisely! One bad decision can lead you to the graveyard. Select the next card which will help you get one step closer to redemption!
- High Energy Roguelike: You will need to make decisions at every step of the way. Crawl one card at a time and combine objects found in chests, markets and at the end of each dungeon to bolster your character's abilities. Beware of the cursed items and their devastating effects!
- Just One More Turn: In the Fold, you will never feel prepared. Designed for replayability, each ascent is original and will feel fresh and challenging even to the most experienced player. Use your instincts and knowledge of your champion to fight away the gruelling beasts that populate the underworld.

I'm Christophe Coyard, the solo-developer of FORWARD: Escape the Fold and I previously worked on various small mobile games with the aim of developing my game design skills. Driven by passion, I built this game from scratch for the 7DRL 2019 GameJam and I since then worked hard to develop the ultimate bitesized roguelike game.You can follow me on Twitter @twotinydice !
