The Escapists 2 Wiki
This is a simulation game in which players must navigate their time in prison in order to find a means of escape. From a top-down perspective, players control a small figure through various aspects of prison life: meals, showers, searches, and violent encounters with guards and other inmates. Players can craft weapons from items (e.g., shivs, stun guns, whips) and are able to use tools (e.g., crowbars, brooms, pickaxes) to engage in melee combat with other characters. Prisoners can pummel each other to gain standing, resulting in dizzy-star effects above fallen opponents. Characters sometimes make suggestive comments while inmates are showering (e.g., “That guard's perving on you”; “We're no strangers to love”; “Caught you looking…”; “Not now, got a headache.”).
The Escapists 2 received 'generally favorable' and 'mixed or average' reviews on Metacritic receiving a metascore of 75/100 on both PC & PS4, 77/100 on Xbox One, and 73/100 on Nintendo Switch.
