For the ultimate insight into the development of Ape Out and its design decisions. Guided tour through the exhibition by the developer Gabe Cuzzillo, supported by the co-curator of Devolution Mascha Camino. Complementing the exhibited versions by background information, secrets and anecdotes.

Ape Out is an intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom. Find your rhythm in the chaos as a dynamic soundtrack of drums, cymbals, and decapitations drive the action to the edge of mayhem.

Development on Ape Out begann when Cuzzillo entered into game development courses at New York University (NYU), where he also worked on an independent study with Bennett Foddy. Foddy contributed to Ape Out's art, while Matt Boch, an associate professor for NYU's Game Center, worked on the game's music system and sound design. Ape Out was part of the NYU Game Center Incubator and partially financed by Indie Fund. Publisher Devolver Digital announced their involvement in Ape Out in March 2017, when they released a playable trailer.

The tours are a part of Devolution #5, a cooperation between Gabe Cuzzillo, Devolution, A MAZE. / Berlin 2019, Game Design // UE and Clash of Realities.
