    This is an endless cycle of the entitiy. You can die, live - doesn't matter. You still have hope.

    simple lore:
    there are two escapes: hope and despair
    in despair you escape by becoming killer
    in hope your escape is struggle as survivor
    death will not unbind you from entity

    It would be cool if they set it up that if you beat every killer in a row, or kill every survivor with each killer that you get a special video ending for that killer/survivor. :D

    Good question. Living is not an escape either I guess, since the chase keep repeating again and again. It should be "There is no escape". But death is not an escape sounds kinda cooler.

    Devs also hinted, that there is real escape. There is some sequence of things, which allow survivors escape for real. Lorewise, of course.

    When did they say that? If so that gives me hope that one day the Survivors and Killers can go back to their daily lives! I think The Entity would have to be destroyed or something to in order to free everyone. Or, there might be a way that our survivors can find the realm where Benedict and the Lost Tape Survivors are.

    living = suffering and death = the release of all your suffering and final peace
    but not in the entitys realm!
    since the entity never lets you escape it, no matter weather you live or die,
    living = suffering and death = more suffering

    I think you misunderstood the meaning of this phrase. It means that EVEN death won't help you escape. It means, that you're stuck here. Forever. Have fun ^_^!

    Or... maybe death is not an escape, but neither is life because the survivors are actually all dead in the physical world. Death is the prison in which the Entity holds them. Maybe this is some Gantz type of ######### where the survivors did indeed die and the Entity holds their consciousness in this eternal game of fear and pain, but if they meet certain requirements, the Entity will grant them a second chance at life and release them.

    Maybe too deep ######### for a game

    Games are a legitimate form of storytelling and artistic narrative just like movies or books. I wouldn't doubt it too much lol. 

    But in all likelihood, the devs are still putting together the lore themselves and it likely isnt completely thought out yet.

    Nothing instills more fear and despair than a drop of genuine hope, for if one cannot achieve it they were never good enough; nobody wants to realise they aren't good enough.

    Yet if the escape is possible (even if it is 0.00000001%), there is hope no matter how unlikely. If escape were impossible The Entity would not have enough sustinance. It must expend a lot of energy snatching people, so those it picks must be full of hope.

    Basically, even if BHVR hadn't have said, I would say that there is an escape, but I wonder if The Entity knows about it and allows it because it wouldn't survive otherwise. After all, the tag line says: "Death is not an escape", not "There is no escape".

    If you consider losing all of your emotions and being in an endless limbo dimension for all eternity an escape...


    then yes.
