CyberConnect2’s Shadow Escaper Has You Flee During Day, Fight At Night

By Ishaan . February 23, 2013 . 12:00pm

CyberConnect2 have released an original free-to-play game for iOS devices, titled Shadow Escaper. You play as Lily, a “nightling”—people who can’t stand the sunlight and are on the run from angelic pursuers. During the day, nightlings are unable to do much more than run, but at night, they gain access to their powers, which allows them to retaliate. Here’s a trailer for the game:



Shadow Escaper is available for iOS devices now, and will be released for Android devices soon. You can learn more about the game here.

    Well, 0:53 took me by surprise.

  • Go2hell66

    Looks fun, think ill give it a go

  • Cerzel

    Dear god, I hope the game itself doesn’t have voice acting based on that trailer.

    Game itself looks alright, though.

    • John Diamond

      wow. did they even try with the voice casting? i know it’s a trailer but come on…

  • The voice acting sounds… rather overacted. The game looks okay though; looks like a standard “endless runner”, but nothing to say against it from the video itself.

    Hmm. Looking up “Lili Marlene”, Wikipedia redirected to [this article]. No wonder I was thinking I’ve heard that name once before; it was referenced in Hogan’s Heroes.

    It’ll be coming to Android? Done. I love CC2, so I’m glad that I’ll actually be able to get my hands on this.

    Edit: And now that I’ve watched the trailer, I find myself hoping the full game doesn’t actually have voiced dialog. Yikes.

    lol and suddenly a flashback of the crash bandicoot 3 PS1 demo pops up in my head.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Looks nice but at the end of the day its just another endless runner game, but very flashy. I don’t think my phone could handle it. Also as a lover of dubs, that voice was so cringe worthy.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    temple run Moe’ style

    • The Watcher

      more like Subway Runners

  • FFmax

    Dat voice acting.

  • ryukaiser

    I hope Android version is Japanese Voice. WTF this english voice. Hope Rie Kugimiya for voice actor!

  • She…was literally just reading the lines. I feel like I’m playing Grandia again hearing this acting.

  • Nee Nee

    Yeah, this app crashes very often on a 4g. Better fix that up :<

  • Tien Ron

    another endless runner, didnt even notice the voice acting untill i read the comments haha sounds funny :) but suits the cute little thing, at daytime atleast

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    That VA. O.o

  • Ikki

    Not on french Appstore.

  • I know that voice actress. Kira Buckland. She has always been kind of “eh” at best with her voices. :/

  • Hound

    The voice actress sounds like she’s reading directly from a script written by someone that’s never lived in an English-speaking country.
