The escapists was free on Epic Games few months or more back I already have have but glad to see it free again for ones that missed out the last time it was free
I used to not quite understand the joke about people just collecting games on Steam but not playing them. But now after EPIC I truly understand. So many good free games I have gotten from them, but so many of them Have gone unplayed. Thank you EPIC for your generosity. I can only hope that the data you are mining from me is worth it for you 😂

Ah, that's why I remember getting it free before on EGS. EGS has been amazing with freebies, but personally, I still prefer Steam (far more polished, post reviews, chat with others, good deals.. Sometimes, etc).

I feel like it has been free on Amazon/Twitch as well multiple times, too. Some of the free games seem to appear on one service and then the other. I have been adding these regularly for at least the last year and there have to be close to a dozen games on both now. Come to think of it, a bunch are Team 17 - Escapists, Yooka-Laylee, Yoku Island, I believe Overcooked....

I already have this for free so this must have been offered previously.

I don't really mind using Epic but I do wish their program had the download speed option.

I think that was the sequel. Original is free this time.

I played this, and it was fun when you could find the items needed to complete the stages. But after awhile you then have to start trading items with other inmates and have to have a certain "friend" level with them in order to get the items.

At that point it became not too fun anymore ... just my 2c

One of the worse games I ever played . Bought this for $8 on PS4 and it's confusing as hell and just Grinding of a headache . I love indie games but this one was just corny and a chord to play. Yawn 🥱
