Game description

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!


Key Features:

  • 8 fully operational prison complete with routines to give you a flavour of how it really is inside!

  • 10 separate job opportunities for you to sink your teeth into - if you have the knowledge to earn and hold down these employment paths of course!

  • 185+ Unique Items for you to seek out and perhaps even craft useful items with. (Team17 fully endorse the use of various weapons such as ‘shivs’, ‘nunchucks’ and ‘maces’ – within a fictional setting of course!).

  • Various “favour” types for you to tackle, offered up by inmates – you wouldn’t want to go upsetting them now, would you?

  • Highly opinionated and incredibly funny inmates and guards to keep you on your toes as well as providing entertainment!

  • Multiple escape routes for you to plan and achieve the title of ‘The Escapist’!

  • Multiple save slots so you can have more than one escape attempt on the go!

Difficult

I beat some levels though it gets insanely crazy. Plus very repetitive level over level quest over quest, and even though you have the same goal every time it's hard to play a game like that. The idea and creativity was great so was the online content and gameplay. To wrap it up I didn't exactly enjoy it though doesn't say you have to too. I fully supported my two friends who went to get the game and I support you too.

A Welcome Prison Them Up

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.

Can you escape?

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.

Challenging but Entertaining

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.
