Team17 has announced the second title making parole under its
third-party publishing banner will be the indie prison break PC
The Escapists, created by Mouldy Toof Studios.
“To have Team17, a company with decades of experience, see
The Escapists and be fully behind it is fantastic.
I’m looking forward to working alongside them!” said
Chris Davis, owner at Mouldy Toof Studios.
Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director added, “
The Escapists is a hilarious and truly captivating game
that I personally backed on Kickstarter and have followed from the
start. It’s one of the funniest games I’ve played for a
long time, it constantly brings those laugh out loud moments from
everyone who plays it. I’m delighted Chris has decided to
become part of the program we are offering to fellow indie
developers to help bring their games to market.”
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 everyday objects you will find, or
steal, around the prison but beware of cell shakedowns! All that
stands between you and your freedom is a perfectly executed escape
The Escapists was greenlit by Steam within just 96 hours
of its application last year and is scheduled for release later in
The Escapists will be hands-on at EGX Rezzed, along with
Light by Just A Pixel and other unannounced Team17 titles.
EGX Rezzed takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from the 28th to
30th March. You can keep up to date with Team17’s EGX Rezzed
