Ever wanted to escape from a high security prison or build your own so other players can try to escape it? Well, if your answers to both those questions are ‘YES’ then read on! And if they weren’t, still, keep reading!
From starting the game, you are given options whether or not you want to play the game or build your own prison in the map editor. You can also change the language but usually, it automatically sets it for you. Upon clicking the play button, you are greeted with….
Nothing. My game just crashed.
After a few seconds, the game should load back up (phew) with some really groovy music playing in the background. From here you can select your character, choose their name and what prison you shall be trying to escape from.
Much like Chiptune Champion, The Escapists has an ever expanding workshop for you to download as many online prisons as you want for your amusement. You could download levels in which you could complete all 40+ achievements in one go, or you can have a go at the official prisons and try and escape one of them! Trust me, this is VERY VERY HARD to do (unless you’re a pro).
