"You awaken with a head-ache in an oddly familiar room.  You are wearing a jumpsuit with the number 1090 printed across your chest.  As a chill races down your spine, you search for the exit..."

Escapecraft 2 is the second installment of the Escapecraft series (oh yes, there will be more).  This version features more than a dozen new rooms-o-puzzles, 2 different endings, 50% less rage-quit, functional respawn, minimal game-ending failure penalties and more corny videogame-clich├ęs than you can shake a stack of 64 sticks at!

Those who played the first game (found here) know the drill.  For those new to my devious inventions, I have included a short tutorial room.

As anyone who has ever tried to create something this complicated in Minecraft could tell you, Escapecraft 2 required HOURS upon HOURS of development time before it was fit to release.  This meant time away from schoolwork and the minimum-wage job that helps pay for my graduate education.  If you enjoyed the game, please drop a dollar/euro/yen/wooden nickel in this digital tip-jar.  More donations means more time I can spend away from waiting tables at the bowling alley and more time spent making Escapecraft 3!  

There are two download links.  The first will take you to a Paypal page, where you pay $0.50 and get the game.  The second download link below will take you to an advertisement, followed by the download page.  

Thanks for reading!  Now without further ado...


PAYPAL DOWNLOAD! []  []  []  []  []  [] AD DOWNLOAD!


SPECIAL THANKS TO: Emily, yowto, TheWiz, and berky93 for their INCREDIBLE assistance testing and retesting this new game!  They selflessly spent hours of their time covering my idiotic mistakes.  Without them, Escapecraft 2 would never have been finished.

Installation:
- Download file and unzip to your minecraft folder (on Windows 7,  go to C: -> Users -> *USERNAME* -> AppData -> Roaming -> .minecraft -> saves )
- Rename folder "World#" (where '#' is a number 1-5).  If you already have 5 worlds, you will need to rename one of the existing save folders.
- I recommend creating a additional backup folder, in the all-too-likely event of your death.

Known Problems:
- Since there is no manual save feature in Minecraft, under certain circumstances (you lose items due to death) you may have to manually reinstall Escapecraft and start over.


Walkthrough

MrScaryMuffin, in addition to volunteering to work on EscapeCraft 3, has also provided a very helpful and occasionally hilarious walkthrough video that is almost certainly more helpful than my walkthrough "hints."  Obviously, MAJOR spoilers in the video - if you are just looking for a little bit of help, I recommend the more vaguely worded hints that follow.  For "OMG IM COMPLETELY STUCK WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS STUPID GAME" sort of assistance, use the video.  (Also note that he uses some... unorthodox methods and goes some places I didn't really mean for you to).

I guess I should get back to the first one then. I died at the spawners, and I know what comes after, but I feel like I should still do it.

If I knew people would say its "really awesome" even though they went through all that, the sequel would have been WAY easier to make...

Shoot me a PM with what gave you so much trouble if you get the chance.

Fantastic! Just beat it after having to reload it (screwed myself over with item loss). Missed the helm on my 2nd time through because i forgot about it, but was still able to do fine without it.

Only suggestion i have, add another zombie spawner or 2 in the maze room, the only ones i ever saw were stuck on top of the glass rooms.

is there really an alternative ending to this? :iapprove:

ps I enjoyed the challenges, especially the flood room XD that one got me. The maze was just the right amount of annoyance (if a combination of switches was required for the door I would probably rage quit)

However, I miss the TNT in redstone stages!

I really enjoyed EscapeCraft V1 but this one blew my mind, funny/sarcastic signs (story), awesome test chambers (I'm getting the urge to play "Portal" :grass: .....but as I reached the end I couldn't stop laughing, laughing due to how brilliant this whole game is made...THIS defenitely busted my brain out.
Thank you for destroying my brain. xD

I just beat it now!  (with a tad bit of cheating)

You sir are amazing and that ending had me laughing too.  Please let there be another of these; they are brilliant, and I love the puzzles and the portal humor!

Glad to hear you are all enjoying it :D. It was a pleasure to make (most of the time anyway)

To those who are wondering - there ARE two endings.

Spoiler:

For those who completed it... Favorite/least favorite puzzles?  Any rooms you couldn't finish?  Want to throw some cash in the tip jar?

Also, what would you like to see in the next one?  More of the same?  Something different?  Let me know!
