There’s also some fresh DLC for Escape Plan available to purchase for just 25 cents. Here’s the official description for the ‘Asylum Pack’:

“The Asylum picks up where Lil and Laarg left off at the end of Escape Plan. Traversing through a sewer pipe, Lil and Laarg accidentally find themselves in a psycho ward full of Bakuki’s failed experiments. This latest conundrum is filled with padded walls, shocking minions, blades of mass destruction and even more helpless sheep! The Asylum Pack introduces 7 new Challenge Modes, 4 costumes, and 4 additional Trophies.”
