When a violent earthquake hits Capital Island, the city is
ripped apart. Hundreds are dead, thousands are missing and
the streets erupt with panic as the fight for survival begins.
As the tremors continue your need to escape becomes more and
more desperate. But your route to safety is filled with unknown
dangers and terrifying obstacles. Can you get to safety before
it is too late?...
The Final Escape looks
and feels very much like the Silent Hill range of games.
However, instead of the threat of zombies at every corner,
it is falling buildings, cars and bridges that you need to
game starts in the year 2005 with your character Keith Miyamoto
(a newspaper reporter) waking up on a large, and rather unstable,
suspension bridge after the earthquake has hit Capital Island.
The bridge seems to be deserted apart from a number of vehicles
that were travelling along it when the disaster struck. And

including an amusement park that collapses before your eyes
and an underground shopping arcade that has turned into a

having to kill everything in sight.
