A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Brain-Borgs have come online and the lab wants to shut them down. Use your Brain and your two Cyborg bodies with their different abilities to Escape the Lab, or be terminated.

A physics puzzle platformer where you play as a rogue Cyborg experiment that must escape the lab. Control the Cyborgs and "throw back" the brain between bodies to solve puzzles and escape the lab.

Escape the Lab was created in 1 month for the GameOff Jam sponsored by GitHub.

Keyboard controls:

Arrow keys to move, X to jump, C or Space Bar to have the brain exit the cyborg body.

Player 2 controls: I to jump, O brain exit, and A and S to move left and right.

Press ESC / Menu button to self destruct and restart the level (or Q or T) - useful when you get stuck!
