Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, which now includes another prison in the latest update; Paris Central Pen!

Craft, Steal, Brawl and ESCAPE!

You’ve landed yourself in prison again, and your only chance is to engineer an escape by any means necessary. How you do it is up to you! Why not cause a prison riot? Or dig a tunnel right under the walls of the prison? Or even steal a guard uniform to blend in with your captors?

The Escapists is a unique prison sandbox experience with lots of items to craft and combine in your daring quest for freedom. Life in prison will keep you on your toes with the strict rules that you’ll have to break. The guards are out to stop any escape attempts, so you’ll have to avoid suspicious behaviour by attending roll calls, working a prison job and hiding your stolen craftables.

Become an Escapist now!

So, I love this game and it's really good for speedruns.

However, I have two problems.
1. On Xbox and PC versions of the game you can have prisoners follow you and attack for you if they like you enough but when I try and do everything I can do make them follow you they just won't. Please add this.
2. The second thing is a bit petty but I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem you see I'm a speed runner and so I got this game in June and by the time July came round I had completed all the prisons. This is because the game has a lack of content compared to PC. The other reason I have to back this point up is the fact that the Xbox has a few minor difference that make it hard to copy speedruns from other people playing Xbox. Guard duties are one of those things because guards with certain keys don't do the same things as the the guards on Xbox.

Good but more prisons


I love this game but can you add a 3.0 prison section where there is all the prisons but it is 3.0 take shankton state pen for example can there be 10 people in each cell and there is 40 inmates in the prison (I got this from a dream because I play this game so much 😀 ) and the guards are a bit stronger 🏋️‍♂️ and the prison routine is that they wake up at 4 am and lights out is at 12 am you can change the routine if you want

All the other 3.0 s can be whatever you like

Plz add this 🙂
Also for shankton state pen 3.0 there are:

Hoods ( basically a guard with a tazer )
SWAT ( a guard with access to the control room )

Can the 3.0 section be like the extra section
( I am writing this because I literally escaped all the prisons)

Can there be security cameras in some areas (not the cells ) if you add this it will probably take ages but I won’t care if it takes a long time just plz add this 😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋 plz or this will happen to me 😭 plz add this 👍

Brilliant 🤩


The Escapists is a wonderful game and definitely worth the money I paid for it. I love all the different prisons and planning different routes on how to get out of the prisons. I love the routine in the day and how, each prison you go to, the routine changes (along with bedtime)! I also love the graphics and all the hundreds of items you can craft. There is also different ways to escape in each prison; depending wether there is high security, electric fence/wall around the prison or wether you are completely stranded on an island!
Love it 😍
