Backstab Games has released a new gameplay trailer for its upcoming speedrun platformer The Escapist in advance of its planned launch in November.

In The Escapist, players must rush toward each level's exit using a variety of unique abilities. In addition to being able to run and jump, the game's protagonist is also able to rebound off of walls at high speed -- a move that will prove crucial in avoiding the deadly obstacles found throughout each level.

The Escapist is up for vote at Steam Greenlight.
