Normally when we think of Game of the Year Editions we think of titles like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Overwatch, and Fallout 4. Indie games don’t tend to get this treatment. It’s not as though all Game of the Year Editions are for titles that were the best game of that year. All of this means that a Game of the Year Edition is basically an excuse to put a game and its DLC into one easy to sell package. This is what Team 17 has chosen to do with The Escapists 2. The Escapists 2 Game of the Year Edition collates the base game with the DLC packs, The Glorious Regime, Wicked Ward, Big Top Breakout, and Dungeons and Duct Tape. You can get all this for the tidy sum of $26.99 or £22.99.
If you’re unfamiliar with The Escapists 2, here’s the official description of the game as well as a trailer –
