Added DiffLines:

* SequelEscalation: Probably one of the best examples of this trope. The first game was made as nothing more than Pico's School-inspired point and click that could be beaten relatively quickly and had the production values of a typical Newgrounds Flash game. With each game though, the plots got more and more intricate and the animation became progressively better. And of course that's to say nothing of the fifth game onward, which turned it from being a simple "escape school" game to [[spoiler:something much, much deeper.]]
