About The Escapists

The Escapists is a strategy game played from a top-down perspective. The game was developed by Mouldy Toof Studios and following a Steam Early Access release in 2014, was released in 2015 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

ABOUT:

In The Escapists, the player, who assumes the role of a prisoner, must escape prison. In the beginning the player can choose all the names of every prisoner and guard. Players may acquire various tools to aid in their escape, by crafting them, bartering for them from other inmates, or by stealing them. Players can complete tasks for fellow inmates to improve their standing among them. Engaging in activities like exercise and study allows players to level up their characters, improving their abilities and their chance of escape.

GAMEPLAY:

Players must avoid discovery by the prison guards, and so must follow the prison's daily routines, such as eating prison meals. Players must be careful to hide their tools, as guards will periodically search the inmates' cells. If caught, the player is sent into solitary confinement, and their progress with the escape is reset. There are a number of escape methods including inciting riots, via vents, roof escape, among others. The prisoner will generally need various weapons to win a fight with inmates or guards, the best of which is the Nunchuks or Whip. There are many types of weapons such as a guard's baton or plastic fork.
