For a change of pace, we’ll stop shooting aliens, Nazis, zombies, Nazi zombies, and zombies created by aliens this week, and play as some adorable sprites looking to bust out of jail. Yep, it’s time to run with The Escapists, a puzzle RPG.
The basic idea of The Escapists is, well, bustin’ out. You’re sent to a prison and have to work out how to use its systems to escape from the monotony while struggling with your guilt. At least that’s what I’m assuming. Maybe you’re in Cute Jail for being a sprite in a world of polygons.
Anyway, you have to follow the prison routine, do tasks for fellow inmates, and keep the screws from finding your stash of escape tools. It’s a change of pace in gaming and one I’m quite curious to play. As usual, we’ll be streaming via Twitch from 2:40 p.m. EST to 4:40 p.m., so direct all Oz jokes there. And, of course, you can watch it below.[twitch.tv url=”http://www.twitch.tv/danseitz/” width=”650″ height=”400″]
