The Artful Escape

A vinyl release of the soundtrack to the upcoming game The Artful Escape Of Francis Vendetti was among the backer rewards for game’s Kickstarter. The Kickstarter was unsuccessful, but work continued on the game. The game shortened its name to The Artful Escape and released in 2021 and on November 15, 2022 the new vinyl release was formally announced.

The release is a 2LP on “psychedelic” clear with pink splatter colored vinyl. It is housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Jim Rugg.

Preorders opened on November 17, 2022 and it was scheduled to release in Q2 2023. However, it was delayed and shipped in late September, 2023.
