Team 17, the studio behind prison escape game The Escapists, have announced the games festive DLC. Titled Santa’s Sweatshop DLC the DLC takes on a darker festive theme, following the story of an elf in Santa’s workshop who becomes fed up with the conditions of his workplace. Namely the slave labour. 

“After suffering Santa’s cruel regime for the last 20 years, it’s time for you to leave it all behind and get back home to enjoy Christmas with your real family. Sick and tired of bad working conditions and zero pay, you decide to give Santa a present of your own and hit him where it hurts most and escape his sweatshop once and for all!”

St Nicolas may give us gifts for behaving, but he really doesn't know how to treat the elfs.
