Besides from building and managing prisons, there is another game mode in Prison Architect: The Escape Mode, where you are a prisoner yourself and have to try to escape from the prison.
  
''Escape Mode'' will automatically start if you meet the [[Winning and Failure Conditions|failure condition]] of allowing too many deaths in a short period of time. You will be convicted of Criminal Negligence, and will spend time within your own prison as a prisoner. ''Escape Mode'' can also be started from the menu directly, where you can load any save game to start playing there as a prisoner.

As a prisoner, you are able to walk around in the prison, obtain [[contraband]] items and dig [[Escape Tunnel|tunnels]] from your cell. By causing trouble (e.g. damaging furniture, fighting guards), you will build up reputation points, with which you can gather [[Prisoner#Reputation|reputations]] (like "strong", "tough", etc.) or improve existing ones (e.g. "extremely tough") along with using them to recruit other prisoners to join your crew and follow you around, and to gather reputations for them. Prisoners in your crew can help with tunnel progress and aid in causing trouble. If your own character escapes the prison, is knocked unconscious or killed, you can play on with any other prisoner in your squad.

If your own character is knocked unconscious, you can play on with other prisoners in your crew. If you see handcuffs on your prisoner, that explains why you can't pick up anything or leave the prison area.
Like other prisoners, you and your crew won't be able to interact with anything if handcuffed, and will move at a very slow pace.
