Ways To Escape[edit | edit source]

Perimeter Breakout[edit | edit source]

Method 1:[edit | edit source]

Preparation:

Singleplayer escape:

  1. At night roll call, right before Lights Out, place the Bed Dummy in your bed, equip the Guard Outfit, and go to the Generator and deactivate it. It is at the south side of the first floor, in a room which also has a desk and a glass window.
  2. Quickly run north before Lights Out arrives. Exit the building through the cyan doors in the maintenance room, near the northbound hallway next to the mess hall.
  3. Go west a bit once outside. You will see a small building outside, with Red Key doors. Go in through here and out the other side of it.
  4. Wait for the "Return to Cell" bar to disappear. Using your files, cut through the now-deactivated Electric Fence.
  5. You're free!

Multiplayer escape:

  1. At night roll call, right before Lights Out, all players place a Bed Dummy in their bed, equip their Guard Outfit and prepare their items. One player (henceforth referred to as player A) should have the Cyan Key. Another player, referred to as player B, should have the 2 files. Everyone needs a Red Key. Player A should go to the Generator and deactivate it. It is at the south side of the first floor, in a room which also has a desk and a glass window.
  2. All other players, quickly run north before Lights Out arrives. Player A goes through the maintenance room using their Cyan Key. Exit the building through the northbound hallway next to the mess hall. You shouldn't need a Purple Key because all players except A can exit before Lights Out, but you could always get some for backup.
  3. You will see a small building outside, with Red Key doors. All players, go in through here and out the other side of it.
  4. Wait for the "Return to Cell" bar to disappear. Player B, using the files, cut through the now-deactivated Electric Fence.
  5. You're free!

Method 2:[edit | edit source]

Preparation:

Escape:

At any time of day, head out the Mess Hall through the purple door in the east wall. Go south right into the small room with a desk in it. Start digging east from this room, using your shovels. Use your Timber Brace(s) to support the tunnel when necessary, and be sure to cover the hole with the desk whenever you're not done. Make sure to use your map to discern when you have passed the perimeter wall, then dig up.

You're free!

Top of the Naughty List[edit | edit source]

This is a Singleplayer only escape, meaning that if you are playing in Multiplayer mode, you cannot escape this way.

Preparation: Acquire the following items:

Escape:

  • Raise your intellect to 40.
  • Take all your items and head to the southeast part of the second floor of the prison. Enter the warden's office to find a large table that says "Place Treats for Santa". Place your items on the table in the order it tells you to (Mince Pie, Bottle of Milk, Pretend Carrot).
  • Finally, take the Letter to Santa and place it in the fireplace.

It's Behind You! (Multiplayer)[edit | edit source]

  • Go to the south of floor 2. Look for the door that leads into a room with a Cyan Keycard door. The North wall should have a keycard slot; put the Fake Cyan Keycard.png Fake Cyan Keycard in the slot and the door should open up. Have your fellow inmate go into the room because if you leave, the door will close. Look in the desk and there should be the Pantomime Script.
  • You're Out!
