My First Impressions About The Escapists

The Escapists seems to have a huge amount of crafting options. That is essential for sandbox games. The game’s theme is also a specific niche; which makes it more interesting to consider. I cannot compare graphics with today’s triple-A games, since The Escapists has pixel art graphics. Graphics seems okay, not great for pixel art. Overall, if you like sandbox games and have an interest in the prison-break niche; then you may give it a try.
