Dive in the multi-million selling prison escape game, now on iOS!

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.

Become an Escapist now!

Amazing Game - Except for Some Bugs!

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!


This game is great! I just wish it had come out sooner thought, mostly because it's fantastic and the fact that part 2 is in the process of being made. If part 2 comes out, will there be a mobile version as well? And will that mobile version come out while part 3 is being made? Also people are asking for multiplayer mode, which is actually a thing in part 2. One second to last question: will DLC be added? Like Santa's Sweat Shop and Duct Tape is forever? If there will be DLC, will it be on the same app as purchasable content or whole other separate apps? The final question I have is, will you add the missing content? Such as the powered screw driver, the plated guard outfit, and the durable contraband bad. If it will, which future update will it be in? For now, good bye! -Waldo

Great, but one infuriating bug

So I took about 7 in-game days to get prepped for breaking out of Shankton State. I get a Sturdy Shovel, Sturdy Cutters, Gaurd Outfit, a few keys, and a Sheet Rope. I go down the wrong wall on my first try, so I reload my evening rollcall save. When I reload, a guy that I made angry by taking his job begins to attack me, before I can control the game. The guards then tell me to desist and knock me out before I can even start moving. This happens every time I reload, and I have no option but to start from scratch. I'm in a no win situation, so I can do nothing about it. Do update it so that the nobody can attack you during the beginning part of a reload. (The one where the black surrounds your character and then goes away). It's frustrating, but I can deal with it. Amazing game otherwise, though.
