Thanks to an update to internal systems, your friends and loved ones can now watch you go about your confinement live on the internet.
The service is currently in a beta trial and prisoners will need to opt in to take part. For full instructions on how to opt in, check this link: http://store.steampowered.com/news/15117/
We encourage all prisoners to take part in the beta trial and are thoroughly looking forward to spectating your regular weekly beat-downs and/or crunching popcorn as you throw yourself at electric fences. Please be aware that any live streams may be used for marketing purposes and/or prison staff entertainment.
Live streams currently in progress can be viewed here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/298630/broadcasts
*This is not a thing and I just made it up. I like pie.
THIS IS A PRISONER SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.
There's been substantial discussion around the prison regarding careers in our various institutions. We would firstly like to remind you of the golden rule:
You do not have a right to employment.
Employment Officers are positioned to provide jobs to those who prove themselves capable of, not only handling the added responsibility a job brings, but also able to deliver good quality work on time and in full. Employment is a reward, not a right.
Therefore, it is prudent for me to point out that if you do not deliver your full quota as required by your job role, you will be replaced by someone who is capable of doing so.
There is no exception to this rule, it applies to all prisoners. If you fail to turn up for work whatever the reason, you will be fired. If you do not meet your quota, you will be fired.
No more excuses. I don't want to hear that your cell mate taped you to your bed. I don't want to hear that "Clyde" burned your eyes out with hot chocolate before your shift. I especially do not want to hear the utterly implausible excuse that a ghost came through the walls whilst you were working and proceeded to break your legs with nunchucks. Turn up, do your job - or get fired.
If you are interested in employement, please visit the employment officer in your institution during a free period.
“The Escapists models the life of a prisoner fantastically, and provides the tools to live out your prison escape fantasy in a way that I haven’t seen in a video game, ever. I highly recommend picking it up”
“As far as originality and fun factor go, The Escapists does a lot of things right, and things can only improve from hereon.”
“The pixel art and excellent soundtrack do a great job in setting the atmosphere, and the game has a great base concept that encourages exploration and improvisation.”
