Über das Spiel

Als Strategiespiel rund ums Überleben in der Gefangenschaft sowie das Schmieden von Fluchtplänen, gibt The Escapists den Spielern die „Freiheit“, das Leben eines Gefängnisinsassen nachzuspielen, der seine riskante Flucht plant und in die Tat umsetzt.

Selbstverständlich ist ein Entkommen alles andere als einfach. Die strikte Gefängnis-Organisation muss umgangen und unerwünschte Aufmerksamkeit der Wachen vermieden werden. Die Spieler stellen Waffen und Werkzeuge her, finden oder stehlen sie im Gefängnis und müssen sich vor Zelleninspektionen in Acht nehmen. Spieler arbeiten oder helfen anderen Insassen, um an wichtige Vorräte zu gelangen, während mögliche Fluchtrouten ausgespäht werden.

Alles, was zwischen den Spielern und der Freiheit steht, ist ein perfekt durchgeführter Plan. Trostpreise gibt es nicht. Nur der Hauptgewinn zählt.

Features von The Escapists:
  • Sechs einzigartige Gefängnisse – von der minimalen Sicherheitsstufe in „Center Perks“ bis zum rauen „Stalag Flucht“-Kriegsgefangenenlager.
  • Sechs verschiedene Fluchtmethoden, vom klassischen Graben bis zu feindlichen Übernahmen.
  • Zehn Gefängnisjobs zum Verdienen der nötigen Mittel.
  • Crafting-System: Gegenstände sammeln, aus denen Hilfsmittel für die Flucht hergestellt werden können. Die Spieler stellen Werkzeuge wie Messer, Schaufeln oder Tuchseile und Waffen wie Sockenknüppel, Kammdolche oder eine Tasse geschmolzener Schokolade her.
  • Etwa 200 versteckte Gegenstände und über 50 herstellbare Items.

[h1]Review zu The Escapists[/h1]

Wie man anhand meiner Spielzeit vielleicht erkennen kann, habe ich das Spiel nicht ausführlich gespielt. Dafür fehlte mir einfach die Lust.
Zuallererst möchte ich aus dem Weg räumen, dass The Escapists im Prinzip kein schlechtes Spiel ist. Ich würde es nur nicht weiterempfehlen.
Das Spielprinzip des Spiels ist eigentlich schnell erklärt. Man muss aus einem Gefängnis ausbrechen und gleichzeitig den Gefängnisalltag und Normalität wahren. Anscheinend hat sich das der Entwickler auch gedacht, dass das Spielprinzip leicht sei, weshalb Tutorials im Spiel selbst SEHR zu wünschen übrig lassen! Ein kurzes 10 minütiges Tutorial und ein Hilfemenü reicht ABSOLUT nicht aus, um die Komplexität des Spielers dem Spieler effektiv beizubringen. Denn wenn man mal herunterbricht, was The Escapists eigentlich mit seinem Tutorial beibringt, dann ist das nicht wirklich hilfreich. Im Prinzip wird dadurch erreicht, dass man als Spieler denkt, dass der beste Weg zu fliehen stets die Ventilation sei. Problem ist nur, dass bei einem solchen Fluchtweg immense Probleme auftauchen können. Man sollte sich im Hinterkopf behalten, dass ich immer noch vom ERSTEN zu fliehenden Gefängnis spreche! Also quasi Level 1. Hier mal etwas mehr Kontext zu einer Spielsituation die wirklich so geschehen ist:
Ich habe regelkonform den Gefängnisalltag berücksichtigt und Geld durch Arbeit angehäuft. Mir dann irgendwann von einem Häftling einen Schraubenschlüssel gekauft, um das Gitter zur Ventilation zu öffnen. Später während der Freizeit habe ich das Gitter abgeschraubt und bin auf einen Tisch geklettert, um in die Luftschächte zu kommen. Dann bin ich nach oben geklettert und... erwischt worden, ohne mich groß umzusehen. Ist ja auch logisch. Das Gitter war jetzt ja auch offen und genau über MEINER Zelle. Gut, hab ich mir gedacht. Das wird ja wohl auch anders und LOGISCH anzugehen sein. Ich habe mich noch nie so getäuscht. Zuallererst habe ich neu geladen und es genauso nochmal versucht. Schraubenschlüssel gekauft und hoch ging es wieder. Aber das Gitter konnte man nicht wieder anbringen und es so wenigstens tarnen. Gut, hab ich mir gedacht. Das wird ja wohl auch anders gehen, weshalb ich dann nochmal neu geladen habe und diesmal den Luftschacht in einer anderen Zelle geöffnet habe, um von dort, während des Freigangs fliehen zu können. Natürlich ging auch das nicht. Online habe ich dann gelesen, dass man eine Art Abdeckung craften muss, um das Gitter wieder anzubringen und so eine geschlossene Lüftung vorzutäuschen. Wie das geht? Keine Ahnung. Das hat das Spiel auch nie beigebracht. Auch als ich oben im Lüftungsschacht endlich mal länger mich aufhalten konnte, habe ich dort schon diverse Hindernisse bemerkt, die mir das Spiel ebenso nie erklärt hat, wie ich sie abmontieren könnte. Das Spiel ist viel zu indiskret, was Erklärungen angeht und wenn ich ständig im Internet nachschauen muss, um grundlegende Spielmechaniken zu verstehen, dann lasse ich es lieber bleiben! Man darf das Spiel wirklich nicht mit eigener Logik angehen, sondern muss sich stattdessen an den Weg der Entwickler halten. Das Spiel ist ein Beispiel von Freiheit und Unfreiheit zugleich.
Hier noch ein paar weitere Gedanken, die ich während des Spielens hatte:

  • Der Launcher beim Starten des Spiels wirkt überflüssig
  • Das Vorhandensein vom Steamworkshop und eines Leveleditors habe ich sehr begrüßt
  • Die Übersetzung ist voll mit Fehlern gespickt
  • Die Aufmachung des Spiels wirkt alt und ist nicht wirklich ansehnlich


Vielleicht gefällt mir The Escapists 2 ja besser. Glücklicherweise habe ich für dieses Spiel nur 3€ ausgegeben, weshalb sich mein finanzieller Verlust mit dem Kauf des Spiels in Grenzen hält.

While it has it ups and downs the simplicity of the graphics and the fun and strategic ways you have to escape make this game a fun play for allot of hours to come. There's allot to learn and allot to discorver.

Whereas this game's fanbase is a cancer, this is still an excellent ghame. Try not to listen to the people calling it overrated garbage. The small but vocal amount of people calling the the game overrated were told by others that it was the best game ever made, and when it did not meet those expectations, they justifiably thought it was overrated. This may be the best game ever to many, but not all. No matter what however, calling the game simply 'bad' instead of 'not perfect' or 'not my thing' would be an outright lie. Gameplay is tight and very creative, playing into the plot perfectly. I will not reveal any spoilers about this game since it is best to go in completely blind. If you are even somewhat interested in the genre or intrigued by the screenshots, buy this game. You will not regret it.

The real battle with this one is not immediately looking up how to beat the game. I think I got out of the starting prison maybe once, but escaping isn't, surprisingly, the lion's share of the game. At least for me. Most of my time was spent building up a god tier character, raiding cells for items, completing quests, and getting caught just in the nick of time.

Recommended to anybody who likes peeling potatoes.

This game is about planning a strategy and then actually doing it, which is much harder than it seems. You know you want to dig your way out, but do you have the materials to make a shovel? What if you run into a rock while digging? How will you cover up your hole? Are there any other obstacles after you dig back up? How will you be following the strict schedule at the same time? Game saves after every day, so it's easy to back out if something goes wrong. Overall, a fun game.

Prison Break Anyone? The Escapists is a game where you escape from prison (Obviously). This game does require some brain cells because you plan your escape strategy and then reenact your strategy in order to hopefully escape a bunch of prisons. I recommend that you get this indie game and try it out because it is a very fun game to play. Who doesn't like attempting to break out of prison. I sure do! This game is one of my favorites in my library and because it is able to provide hours of entertainment during boring times. You can also try and take over the prison by beating down all the guards and tying up them all up. All in all, if you are looking for a challenging but also fun and dynamic indie experience, then check out this game because it is definitely worth the investment.

Honestly it doesn't really matter what I say because everyone knows how great this game is. After only a day or two I figured out how to use all the controls which made it much more fun to learn. I didn't want to look up any recipes since I felt like that was cheating but the in-game crafting notes made it so that I didn't resort to that. Without realizing I'd memorized the schedual and prison map and was able to easily get around. The most important part of the game was that it was difficult, but never unfair or infuriating. The save time being at night means that you choose whether or not you risk your day's progress, which makes getting caught feel like your fault as opposed to the game's fault. Overall this is great game with something for everyone.

Whenever I look back at this game in my library, I think to myself. 'huh, why haven't I completed this game, it seems like a fun single player game.' then I remember why, not because of the style, not because of the soundtrack or anything to do with the outward appearance, just one small insignificant game mechanic that frustrates me to no end. If you leave any trace of something that can be slightly constrewed as an escape attempt, you are teleported to solitary confinement. Solitary confinement as a game mechanic is fine, IF the guards can manage to get me in there, but no matter where you are, in the air vents? teleported. Hidding in a locker? Teleported. Already outside of the prison? Teleported. The worst part is, they already had a system in place that would be much better for this. Lockdown and reinforcements. When a prisoner goes missing or a wall is out of place, don't just teleport the player into solitary confinement, make the guards actually fucking look for them.

PS: This is even more of a problem when trying to frame someone, I put a hole in the back of another prisoner's wall and cut the bars to their cell, all without being noticed, I then hid in a locker and with no evidence whatsoever, I was the one thrown in solitary confinement.

This game is such a blast. It gives you hours of fun for a cheap price. It may be hard to escape at first, but after some practice, you should be out of there in the first week. Make sure to pay attention to the walking patterns of guards and the shops of other prisoners, and don't get shot by the towers!

Ok game to pass time,
Gameplay itself isnt difficult to execute, strategizing itself keeps the game challenging.
May get dull after a while. Does feature habitual gameplay elements (grinding).
A small learning curve and perhaps a requirement to look at online walkthroughs (for crafting) which may put off some players.
Over all ok.

Great prision excape sandbox. It is fun to play even after you have beat all the prisions; you can try to escape in a new way. I actually prefer the risk vs reward in this game more so then the 2nd game that they created. By that I mean in the original game when you decided to make a break and the prison went on lockdown if you didn't escape the prision does a full reset so all your hidden items get found and you have to start over with your plan. It really makes you have to plan ahead and judge if a escape is too risky or not.

TL;DR - Buy it; its worth it.

This game has either made me want to rip my teeth out or has given me stage 6 depression (I'm looking at you HMP IronGate).


Well, partially.

Let's read the title, alright The Escapists. So you just escape the prison and you win right? well yes.

This game has it all, it's fun and gives you a good laugh, or gives you the most frustrating experience ever, well in a good way. I had this game around 2016 and let me say that my money was well spent, definitely would pick it up when its on sale 100% worth it. The starter prisons are at a good difficulty for a new player but the harder prisons *ahem* HMP Irongate may cause you to pull your hair out. The extensive planning and thinking when it comes to escaping is next level. I mean you can just always look up a guide but where's the fun in that??

Some good things about this game are that the starter prisons are balanced, require a good amount of strategy and thinking, and having the simple goal of escaping while having obstacles thrown at you to prevent you from accomplishing such a goal.

One thing to note, compared to The Escapists 2, this game is HARSH. I mean everything gets reset when you make a simple mistake. The game punishes you at such a broken level when you make a tiny mistake. Compared to Escapists 2 and this game. This game can be up for debate, harder for someone who just picked up the game. Escapists 2 lets you off on some things but this game... it's ruthless. But that's what I love about the game. It takes extensive thinking and strategy to escape a tough prison and feels accomplishing. But the best review that you can find is just honestly watching some gameplay.

tl;dr: escaping HMP Irongate without looking anything up is rocket science

This game is absolute dogshit. You lose your hard earned stats and inmate respect over time so you are constantly just trying to keep them topped up and if you get caught once it will undo everything you've done towards escaping AND remove all your contraband even if it's nowhere near where you were caught which makes no logical sense. There is absolutely no hint or indicate towards what would work and what you might logically think would work actually doesn't. Fortunately the sequel is MUCH better.

The escapists : It's a truly fantastic game, you will find yourself struggling by the 4th prison if you are anything like me though, however if you have some time and the small amount of money in pocket, the escapists is a great game that will prepare you for the prison experience. (the last sentence was a lie)

I expected to enjoy this more than I did. I cannot quite explain the cause - maybe the difficulty? In the end, it has its moments and I did have fun most of the time.

It's a decently fun game to play

The big problem I have with it is that it leaves its savegames in the wrong folder on Linux. Not following XDG standards, it just drops a subfolder in ~/ (/home/{user}/) instead of in ~/.local/share/ or ~/.config or something. Even ~/.Escapists/ could have worked since that would make it a hidden folder.

This has been mentioned in a discussion thread from 2017 ( https://steamcommunity.com/app/298630/discussions/1/1457328392116264828/ ) but has never been addressed by the developers.

That's basically the only problem I have with it.

The Escapists: Fun, Unique and Deceptively Simple

Gameplay:
The concept of the gameplay is very simple but in practice is extremely deep and complex. You arrive to six different prisons of varying levels of security and your goal is to successfully escape from the walls of the prison. There are many ways to escape and it’s really up to you on what you want to do. You can dig a hole and escape underground, break through the walls, and walk out of the prison at night, disguise yourself as a guard and escape through the road or raze hell and beat up every guard over and over until the guards surrender and let you go. Easily the best part of the game is going forward with your escape plan and attempting to breakout. It’s so intense, using the tools you’ve earned during your time and hoping that the guards don’t notice anything fishy while you get to work. Getting the tools and items is also very satisfying. Gathering the materials and watching you go from the bare scraps to the perfect prison escape tool is a sight to behold. Another thing I love about the game is the prison life aspect. Having to go to rollcalls, getting to places on time, working prison jobs, random cell searches, and sneaking by guards really help this niche but present aspect. One thing you will have to do is manage your stats. You have 3 main stats. Strength which increases your base health, speed decreases the time in between your attacks, and intelligence lets you craft more complex tools and items. However, increasing stats, fighting, and working will increase your fatigue. Too much fatigue will make you unable to many physical tasks and the only way to decrease is to rest, sit down, eat, or take a shower. This may seem like it’s overwhelming but that’s the whole fun of it. There is so many things to keep track of in a single day that you will always get sidetracked by one thing when your trying do achieve your goal. In an average day you will have to: manage your desk’s contraband capacity, dodge guards to avoid heat, do your prison job so you don’t lose it, loot the other inmate’s desks for supplies, compliment guards and other prisoners so you’re on their good side, prepare for the possibility of a cell search, follow the routine and be where you need to be on time, complete fellow inmates favors and holy shit dude. It’s so much fun to somehow handle the madness of escaping from prison within the 15-20 minutes of every in game day.

NPCs, Opinion, and Heat:
The NPCs of the game are deceptively simple. Let’s start with your fellow inmates. They are both your friends and screw overs. You can buy items from them, take favors for pay, get into prison fights, etc. However, my favorite part about them is the opinion meter. Depending on your actions, they will have a positive or negative opinion about you that affects how they act towards you. Almost all unique actions inmates do take, will likely be changed in some way by the opinion meter. The guards are massive pains though. They revolve around the heat meter. Breaking the prison rules (such as going into other inmates’ cells, not showing up to lunch on time, or stealing items from inmates) will add to your heat meter. When your heat is high enough, the guards will attack you and beat you until your unconscious. However, if they catch you for breaking a big rule (like finding contraband during a cell search or find a digging hole) they will send you to solitary confinement. Solitary confinement is your worst nightmare, it brings back all broken tiles in the prison and destroying all of your contraband. It doesn’t feel like it’s the game’s fault when it happens though, since it is so specific it always feels like you messed up and you know how to improve.

Prison Level Designs and Security:
The level designs and locations of each of the prisons is fantastic. The prisons creatively place the sections and necessary props in new locations. The unique placement forces you memorize where all the prisoners and guards are going at a specific time of day so you can know when is best to make a major step forward in your escape. However, stat increasers and zones are not everything the devs knew where to place. For example, weak spots are very important to the designs of the levels so that you can exploit them for a slight advantage. Whether it’s an air vent in your cell that leads to a good room to dig or a wall you want to break into so you can store all your contraband. The designers knew where to place each critical weakness or security measure of the prison to best help or screw you over. Speaking of security measures, the game features a healthy number of unique measures. Things like metal detectors to alert the guards to contraband you are carrying. Cameras that can watch your every move and add heat when you misbehave. Generators to electrocute fences, both above ground and bellow. And the guard towers, which will shoot and instantly knock you out if you have above 90% heat and are in an open area. The security is creative, well thought out, and very intelligently placed within the levels. There isn’t a single prison that is poorly thought out or designed and that is a huge strength of The Escapists.

Sprite Work and Level Editor:
One of my favorite art styles is very simplistic sprite work. Games like Celeste and Cookie Clicker do this really well and the art style in general makes me feel nostalgic. I am happy to say this game does its visual style well and is really pleasant to look at. The sprite work is incredibly simple but detailed enough to stand out and not feel lazy. It’s really well done and nice to look at. And surprisingly, the assets are very easy and fun to use in the games level editor. This game has a level editor and steam workshop support which I was pleasantly surprised to find out. It’s honestly a lot of fun to build your own prison’s and see your vision come to life. The editor is very simple to learn, use, and upload. While downloading prisons off the workshop can be buggy, it’s worth it because of all of the well designed prisons that can be found. I do wish that the game had open source modding available so people could easily add new mechanics to their prisons, but I understand why it’s not here.

Complaints:
I do have multiple complaints because while I love this game, it is flawed in a few areas. Number one is the save and load system. It makes the game feel too easy. While you should normally feel very tense during a prison escape because you only have one shot and it’s all or nothing, with the save and reload system it could be your 8th attempt and all tension and anxiety is gone. I feel like there should be a way to disable it but it is more of a nitpick because you can just not use it. Next is easily the biggest complaint that people give, how you get items. It’s basically pure rng as your main source of materials is through randomly generated prisoner desks and requires a lot of grinding to get the items you need. I completely agree, but I personally don’t fully hate it. While it is annoying and isn’t that fun, I think it really adds a lot to that feeling of prison life that the game gives. The last big flaw that I see in this game is how repetitive it can feel. While yes, each prison feels unique in both its location and placement of its routines. You sadly can only keep it interesting for so long without introducing anything like a non gimmicky new security measure or hell new NPC.

Conclusion:
So what do I think of the escapists? It’s good, really good actually. I enjoy its chaotic multitasking a lot. Getting as much as you want done within a small amount of time and not getting caught by the guards is just fun to do. It has its flaws for sure, and there are major problems that can affect my enjoyment of the game, but I can forgive most of them because the main gameplay loop is just really good. I recommend this game whole heartedly for being unique, fun, and deceptively simple.
