While I do not think the game Escape Goat was directly inspired by the Chris Remo song of the same name, one can only get so many chances to link something to this song:



Back to the game at hand, Escape Goat has a relatively simple premise. You are a totally normal witchcraft practicing goat who has been imprisoned for your wizarding ways. You have to find a way out of the dungeon that imprisons you, and you meet up with a magical rat on your way out.

The game is basically a puzzle platformer, and your rat companion is utilized to get through smaller segments of the passageways. I found the game well balanced, with puzzle difficulties increasing as you progress through the game.

Escape Goat can be yours for the low price of 80 MSP.

If you have an Xbox Live Indie Game that you feel should be featured in an edition of the Indie Games Spotlight, please PM your suggestions to mancide.

Hang about... Goats are only imprisoned for Witchcraft but, humans were supposedly burnt or thrown from a cliff? There seems to be some intense discrimination going on here...

I played the whole game through in a couple of hours. It's got a custom level editor too. Totally worth the 80MP. I recommend this game highly.
That's right.
