Added DiffLines:

''Our Lovely Escape'' is a 2019 visual novel produced by Canadian indie studio Reine Works and published by Top Hat Studios.

[[PlayerCharacter You]] play as a writer for Reine Works, a fictionalized version of the game company creating otome visual novels. Your boss is the stern, serious Lissa Vogel, and your co-workers are ditzy artist Alexis Ainsworth and quiet coder Mayu Ueda. You are wrapping up production on a novel, and life seems rather ordinary. Will you find love in the office? Or will life just go on as normal?

In short, your basic romance game, with the main character's gender being determined by the player's choice, and optional sex scenes can be thrown in.

[[SurpriseCreepy Just try not to get bad ending]].

!!The game contains examples of following tropes:
* AccidentalMurder: [[spoiler: One of Mayu's bad endings has her accidentally kill the player character during an argument.]]
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: The unnamed assailant who assaulted Alexis in the past, only to himself be killed in self-defense]].
* BeleagueredBoss: Downplayed. While most of the staff (including the player, for the most part) is competent, Lissa's inner circle consists of a ditzy slacker (Alexis) and and a quiet, often scary girl (Mayu).
* BigEater: Alexis is known to take snack breaks on the job, often to the detriment of her work.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Mayu is known to get jealous easily, particularly when Lissa gets involved. [[spoiler:Jealous enough to kill, even.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: Alexis was once attacked on the street, and responded by killing the man in self-defense.]]
* FeaturelessProtagonist: While the player does have an established past and personality, we never actually see their face, or even body, likely a result of the ability to chose their gender.
* FiringEpisode: [[spoiler: One ending, achieved by not choosing a girl and bombing the email minigame, results in Lissa firing the player, who then ends up thinking about starting a new life, complete with a potential new love in the form of
* TheManyDeathsOfYou: [[spoiler: The game has a surprising amount of bloody death scenes for a romantic visual novel. You can die on accident, Mayu can kill you, Alexis can kill you, Mayu ''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs and]]'' Alexis can kill you...]]
* MeanBoss: Lissa's not exactly a {{jerkass}}, but her authority over her employees is as unquestioned as her stubborn streak, and she doesn't pull her punches when it comes to calling out employees she thinks are screwing up, even to the point of cursing at them. [[spoiler: One of Alexis's bad endings even sees her calling the player into her office, where Mayu kills them.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler: It's mentioned that Lissa's parents left her as a child.]]
* PurelyAestheticGender: Other than mentions of where you stand among Reine Works' employee gender balance, among a few NSFW alterations, the gender choice has no real effect on the game.
* TheSlacker: Alexis spends most of her time downing chips and pawning her work off to others, much to Lissa's chagrin.
* SurpriseCreepy: Play the game right, and you'll find true love. Play it wrong, however, and the effects from range from nothing changing, to heartbreak, [[spoiler: all the way up to the player dying]]. In fact, even if you do take the right path, you may come across something much darker than expected, [[spoiler: such as the reveal of Alexis's past]].
* SympatheticMurderBackstory: [[spolier: Alexis reveals in her good ending that she killed a man who was attacking her.]]
* WhatTheHellPlayer: [[spoiler: Try to beat around the bush regarding your relationship with Lissa? Say goodbye to her.
* Yandere: Mayu has shades of this, being somewhat clingy and creepy at times, [[spoiler: though it's in certain bad endings where such traits truly become evident, to the point of killing the player for varying reasons]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Lissa has blue hair.
