The Artful Escape is not too far off.

The Artful Escape was part of the stacked line-up of games showcased on the Annapurna Interactive livestream last night. The music-infused adventure game has been doing the rounds for years, but it now has a solid release date of September 9 on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

The Artful Escape is a psychedelic, glam rock journey of a young guitarist in search of his stage persona. To get there, he’ll have to go on a rock opera trip through the cosmos to escape the shadow of his folk singer uncle, and find his own voice.

This new trailer doesn’t show much, as we’d previously seen plenty of the game. It does boast about the impressive voice cast, however, which is becoming a thing with Annapurna-published games. Michael Johnston, and Caroline Kinley are taking lead, and they’re joined by Lena Headey, Jason Schwartzman, Mark Strong, and Carl Weathers.

The Artful Escape will launch into Xbox Game Pass.
