The Escapists provides the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life and, as is the case with all inmates, the main objective is escape! While under the careful watch of the guards, players will need to go about their daily duties clandestinely secreting useful objects from under their captors’ noses. Potential escapees will learn how to craft seemingly innocuous items into useful tools and even weapons as well as using them to execute cunning diversionary tactics.
Players will need to learn when to keep in line, utilising their time sensibly as they develop their own personal plans of escape. Learning the prison’s daily routines and spotting opportunities are all part of life behind bars. Working out potential routes and even misdirecting guards soon become second nature.
Whilst remembering to attend roll-call, holding down their job and keeping their fellow inmates on side, players are can also benefit from advancing their character's statistics through various means including boosting their intellect and exercising regularly. Balance mundane routine with careful planning to attain your ultimate goal - escape and freedom!

This is a very good quality prison escape simulator, although some things like unrealistic damage or some hawk-eyed guards this game is really good. Never knew just how effective spoons really are against concrete. It also included a level editor so you can make your own prisons making the gameplay near infinite, a great purchase for fans of escaping prison or building prisons to escape from.
The escapists is a top down game where you are a prisoner, living life day by day. Really, if you wanted too, you would never have to escape, you could just live day by day with the rest of the prisoners. But eventually you start to get bored of the daily routine and want that taste of freedom. It's essentially survival game set in prison. Craft the items you need after you've found the recipes for them and you can fool guards into thinking you're still there. But its a race against time, and you need to get out! Can get tedious, but every game can after a while.
At first, I thought this game was going to be a waste of my money, but when I bought it, I realized that it was much more than what was displayed in the adds. This game requires the user to use an utter sense of creativity to escape a prison, and this is part of the reason I bought it. The way the developers put so much effort into things like air vents, brick walls, and much more is impressive. If you can't decide upon buying it, here is some advice, buy it now, and you won't regret it.
The Escapist is great fun! It have been made really good and enjoyable. +It has some good old pixel-graphics!
This was a really neat random game where you can choose how you prefer to escape while being able to adapt to events as they happen around you. Make friends, make enemies and steal EVERYTHING but dont get caught!
