Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, which now includes another prison in the latest update; London Tower!

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.

Escaping is what you do best, and you’ll have to prove your skills in a variety of challenging prisons from across the world, with new prison, Escape team included in the latest update. Locked in a military prison for crimes they did not commit, the 4 members of the Escape team must work out how to break free from an Escape proof military prison. Maybe the rumours that the compound houses the fiercest tank in history will help?

Become an Escapist now!

Amazing Game - Except for Some Bugs!

The AD:le

I love the Escapists and was debating whether to get it on PC or not, but then this came out and I knew I had to get it! For $4, I could see what the game was all about and have a better opinion on trying the DLC in the PC version (which I hope you add as in-app purchases later!). It was great, my brother and I both were playing it. Except, we were experiencing some launch bugs, which is to be expected. I encountered some text issues with the description of X item in the payphone. Also, sometimes the opening-desk sound kept looping for no apparent reason. My brother's game wouldn't let him escape other prisoners trying to beat him up while loading a save. He was just frozen in place while the black box around the screen faded away and the prisoners had time to come at him and kill him. He died every time he tried loading and was forced to stay in solitary without his items. But these bugs are minor, and I know you can fix them. Anyone that wants to get this game should definitely buy it, it is worth the money! Can't wait to see how it progresses in the future!

Great game


Great game except it’s really hard and frustrating(but I think that’s the point). Also make stuff easier to get because I’m trying to get a metal plate but only one person has it out of like 18 people and you have to buy it and he doesn’t like me so he won’t sell it to me. Which leads me to another problem. If you knock someone out and you check their pockets it’s annoying that you don’t get what they were selling because in real life that would happen(but again I think it would be too easy to get items if that happened).also it’s annoying that if you’re trying to fight someone but you hit someone else like a cop. When someone hits you and then you automatically hit them back and then a guard sees you hit someone else but not them hit you it’s annoying because they chase after you so that’s another problem. Also other NPC’s should be able to be sent to the doctor and to solitary confinement because some people actually have contraband items on them/in their desk. Everything else is amazing and perfect.

Very fun and exciting

im not giving mah name XD

Ok so first off, I LOVED the difficulty scaling, for example the first prison has no metal detectors, vents, a cheap pay phone, and more, and the difficulty got higher and higher slowly, but quickly at the same time of that makes sense. Also, when preforming a (successful) escape attempt, I found my heart racing if it took a long time to get here! The special prisons are super fun and some of the normal ones had exclusive items that felt realistic and fun to try to get and use! Sometimes you have to build REALLY elaborate escape plans and sometimes you just use brute force! Also after you escape a prison you get treated to a little clip of you failing to escape and that explains why you then unlock a harder prison! And it feels soooo satisfying to see your character succeed in escaping from the last one! Overall this game is well worth the price, and it WILL test your wits. If there was a 1-10 rating scale it'd be a 10 so if you like strategy games, get this.
