'The Escapists' Announced

The Escapists is a time management prison escape game that gives you the "freedom" to live the life of a prison inmate, ultimately plotting and pulling off a daring escape!

To escape you'll have to work around the strict prison schedule as best you can to avoid any unwanted attention from the guards. Craft weapons and tools from everyday objects you will find, or steal, around the prison but beware of cell shakedowns! All that stands between you and your freedom is a perfectly executed escape plan.

“To have Team17, a company with decades of experience, see potential in The Escapists and be fully behind it is fantastic. I’m looking forward to working alongside them!” said Chris Davis, owner at Mouldy Toof Studios.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director added, “The Escapists is a hilarious and truly captivating game that I personally backed on Kickstarter and have followed from the start. It’s one of the funniest games I’ve played for a long time, it constantly brings those laugh out loud moments from everyone who plays it. I’m delighted Chris has decided to become part of the program we are offering to fellow indie developers to help bring their games to market.”
