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.
The Escapist is brilliant, but not a game for everyone! The game is incredibly diverse, the crafting system and the number of methods to break out are much more extensive than you think! But you also have to be patient, you can't just break out in...
one day. You have to prepare yourself over a longer period of time, e. g. by working every day, doing things for prisoners, training and educating intellectually. One mistake and you have to do it all over again. You’re going to suffer a lot of setbacks and you're going to be frustrated. Not everyone has this patience, and one should consider whether one has the nerve for this game before.
Externally, even the first prison (level) is relatively difficult and the game entry is also not exactly easy a guide or Let’s Play helps to understand all functions, objects and possibilities. So, The Escapist is a bit too monotonous and maybe boring for some, but the others who want to take the time and do it can enjoy a huge, incredibly strategic, brilliant and fun game!
