Are you ready for the ultimate prison escape challenge? Look no further than The Escapists, a strategy and simulation game that lets players take on the role of a prisoner trying to break out of jail. Developed by Mouldy Toof Studios and published by Team17, this game will put your cleverness and problem-solving skills to the test.
The Escapists is a top-down view game where players control a prisoner navigating through a series of correctional facilities. Each in-game day consists of a strict routine, including roll call, meals, work, and free time. It’s up to the player to decide how they want to spend their time and what tasks they should prioritize in order to plan an escape.
Players must manage their prisoner’s stats, such as health, energy, and intellect, to ensure they are fit enough to carry out their escape plan. These stats are increased through various activities, such as exercising, studying, or even stealing from other inmates. Keeping a low profile and avoiding suspicion from guards is crucial for any successful escape attempt.
The Escapists offers players a variety of options to break out of prison. It’s up to you to be creative and decide on the best approach. You can choose to dig tunnels, crawl through vents, steal a guard’s uniform, or simply overpower the guards and escape through brute force.
Each prison presents a different level of difficulty, and some may require multiple escape attempts before finally succeeding. With six different prisons to escape from, the game offers plenty of challenges and keeps players engaged and motivated.
The Escapists also features a multiplayer mode that allows players to team up and plan escapes with their friends. This adds a new level of excitement to the game as players must strategize and coordinate their efforts to successfully break out together.
Players can also create their own prisons and share them with others through the game’s Steam Workshop feature, making the gameplay experience even more diverse and dynamic.
