Entrant 2015

Daedalic Entertainment GmbH and Irresponsible Games, LLC


First entered in the 2011 IGF Competition under the title "Alcatraz", this moody point-and-click adventure took three more years to reach the public.

Players must break out of the most notorious prison in America and navigate the '50's Beat scene in San Francisco. As Joe Lyons, you'll have to outwit (or outfight) our country's most violent criminals, including the psychotic "Birdman of Alcatraz". And as Christine Lyons, Joe's wife on the outside, you'll have to find Joe's loot and help him escape -- and deal with the crazy writers, poets, singers, and painters of North Beach.

Will Joe escape? Will their marriage collapse? Who will die?
