Right then Turkeys,
It’s update time.
Today we’ve added what is, by far, the hardest challenge you’ve faced in The Escapists so far. This prison is such a beast that it was very specifically chosen to be the last during Early Access (more on that below). Welcome, cons, to HMP Irongate.
Irongate is the premier destination for the prime scum of the earth. Equipped with an impressive arsenal of anti-escapist defences, plotting to get out of here will be a severe challenge – and, trust me, the prison walls are only a minor obstacle.
But fear not, you’ll have plenty of motivation to leave. The guards at HMP Irongate are the best of the best at hating on you, patrolling the prison with severe frowns and electrified batons which will down you at the slightest touch. You can put that glint in your eye away as well, the batons use fingerprint ID’s and won’t work for anyone other than the guard they belong to.
The guards aren’t your only challenge. Kiss goodbye to your army of cons waiting for your command. They hate new fish with a passion, so it’s probably a good idea to work on your public image. But good luck to you on that front too, free time is a rare commodity in Her Majesty’s Prison.
I have a final tip for you, and you should heed it well. Learn where the cameras are.
That’s enough of me spoiling what will surely become the focus of all your hatred over the next few weeks, I look forward to your caps locked rage-posts in the forums ;)
Elsewhere in today’s update:
“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.”
