(Pretty sure there isn't a thread for this yet.)
The Escapists is a game developed by Mouldy Toof Studios where you play as an inmate slowly working out an escape plan.
You interact with the other inmates as they are vital to your escape. You can establish friendships with them so you can buy items off them for a cheaper price or just beat them up for items.
You can increase their liking to you by giving them items (specifically weapons) and doing favors for them from distracting guards during roll call to beating up Chris.
You can increase your chance of beating them up by upgrading your strength (how hard you hit and how many hits you can take), speed (how fast you hit), and intellect (being able to craft certain items, specifically weapons).
Once you plan out your escape, you can put it to action. Digging your way out, cutting the fence at night, and beating up all the guards and running out are all possible escape plans.
The game is available on Steam and currently on sale.
The game will also be available on X-Box ONE and the PS4.

Some screenshots I took.
WARNING: REALLY BIG.
I highly recommend this game to anyone who has not picked it up yet.

You want me to pay money for a 2D demake of a game that already exists, is free, and is obviously superior?
Visual entertainment innovator MDickie never gets the recognition he deserves.

Oh, please. That's a broken link, and I still know the game you're talking about is a piece of shit. (I mean, it's good for a few laughs, but seriously, it's a pile of shit.) The Escapists is actually a good game; I've sunk quite a few hours into it.

I think this game is actually pretty cool, and I prefer the 2D Graphics over the 3D graphics mostly because these look a bit better than the flat faces.
