Somewhere near a quiet English village in 1969, a forbidding-looking computer factory looms over the woods.  Most of the local kids prefer to avoid the place, but computer-obsessed Barry Basic has decided to go nosing around the building.

His friends, Gill and Tony, need to get Barry out of the building before anyone gets into serious trouble.

Your mission in this game is to find and rescue Barry so that you can all get home in time for tea!

Barry Basic and the Quick Escape was created for the Adventuron Text Adventure Literacy Jam 2021, and is a loose prequel to Barry Basic and the Quest for the Perfect Port.
