The Escapists dumps you in a prison, gives you a life sentence of 30 years, and dares you to try and escape. And escape you will try, try and try again, as you attempt to live a regular locked-up life, keep the guards happy, and dig tunnels when they're not looking.
But how can you escape? Well, you could dig a hole using a plastic spoon. Or perhaps cut a hole in the ceiling vents and go a-crawling. Or maybe you'll find the tools to create a make-shift key and simply walk out of the front gates. It's up to you how you go about beating The Escapists, and as more and more content is added during the game's Early Access phase, there's bound to be plenty of reasons to come back to it.
You can find The Escapists on Steam.
