Team17 has announced their plans to bring indie developer Mouldy Toof Studios hilarious prison break-out game The Escapists to Steam Early Access on August 20th for just £6.99/$9.99/8,99 €.
Created by talented solo independent developer Chris Davis of Mouldy Toof Studios, Team17 were not the only one who was captivated by The Escapists humour and charm as the game was successfully greenlit by the Steam community within just 96 hours of its application last year.
The Escapists is a time management prison escape game that gives you the ‘freedom’ to live the life of a prison inmate, ultimately plotting and pulling off a daring escape.
“To escape you’ll have to work around the strict prison schedule as best you can to avoid any unwanted attention from the guards. Craft weapons and tools from the unique items you will find, or steal, around the prison but beware of cell shakedowns! Perform “favour” quests for your in-mates or apply for a job in order to make the money you’ll need to obtain those vital supplies! Discover and navigate multiple escape routes! All that stands between you and your freedom is a perfectly executed escape plan.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
