    I had fun with it
    It's basically just prison architect but you control one inmate and you have to try and shawshank out of there... Top down pixellated RPG where you have to run around doing quests for other inmates and such, depends on what you like! but if that sounds good go for it

    Maybe they'll completely add the ability to play as a prisoner.

    You buy it? Am I the only one who download file apk for free and play on PC? :v I love this game, actually I love those game with such kind of graphics, it reminds me about old games I play when I was a child, like contra, mario. It’s this combination of relatively simple systems that makes the escapist work so well, with a slow build up to the actual escape attempt. Where it falls down is that in addition to its routines and focus quickly becoming repetitive, it doesn’t have much in the way of character. No, that’s too strong – it has plenty on the surface, with its adorable 16-bit style graphics, cheery prison brawls, random pop-culture quoting, and the ability to name all the characters after friends, family, co-workers, teachers, or whatever. A few minutes in though, you’re left in a world where everything is a pure puzzle game piece rather than a person, with no real sense of danger, and no characters to feel anything for beyond ‘guy who will give me $28 for punching that guy’. There’s none of the tension of even, say, Prison Break (the pretty good first series, not the terrible, terrible others) even in the most brutal, locked down jail you encounter, and after a while that’s missed. The Escapists does a great job of turning prison escape into a puzzle, but rarely does its emergent story become more than “Well, that went to crap.” It doesn’t matter while the momentum carries it, but as said, there’s a lot of downtime.

    Did you make an account just to post that?!

    And yes, I think you should buy the game. Or watch some youtube videos of the game to see if you like it.
