The Fatigue statistic represents the player's energy and weariness. The Fatigue statistic can be:

  • Increased, thus meaning that the player is wearier, and therefore not apt to do any actions that increase fatigue. Fatigue can be increased by actions such as exercise, study, beating someone up or digging.
  • Decreased, thus meaning that the player is energetic, rested, active, and therefore very apt to do actions that increase fatigue. Fatigue can be decreased actions such as sitting, laying in bed, showering, eating, or laying on the sun lounger.

Fatigue is represented by a lightning bolt in the top left corner (Bottom left in The Escapists 2). You cannot dig, mine, fight, exercise or study (all are fatigue increasing actions), while you have 100% fatigue or more, and will be alerted by the game when fatigue reaches to a level that is too high to do any fatigue increasing actions. In the Console/Mobile versions, as well as The Escapists 2, the fatigue will go lower until reaches to 0 then your too fatigued, it is done the same thing increased by actions.


Fatigue can also be effectively reduced when consuming items like the Bar of Chocolate or Cooked Food. It is reduced by 10% every time consumed.
