Level Design for The Escapist
This is a level for The Escapist 2. In The Escapist 2, you play as a prisoner. You will train yourself and do whatever you can to get out of there.
This level is for beginners. In this level they have a chance to learn and practice how to make tools with basic items. There are at least 5 ways to get out of there, 2 of which is pretty clear to players. They need to avoid the guards and use their tool to finish the level.
Here is the layout.
The first thing I do is to make my goal clear, which is for beginners to practice.
Then I designed the ways for players to get out. They should be clear and easy to understand. Players can know which tool they need easily.
At last, I put other rooms and decorations in to the prison. This takes more time than the designing, because you will have to change it over and over again.
