The opening of the San Francisco Bay with the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge was a symbol of freedom for many people. Cynically, prisoners of the infamous Alcatraz could enjoy a beautiful view of this monument from their prison yard.

Take your place in that yard as Joe, who is serving a long stretch for armed assault and robbery and needs to break out in order to recover the spoils of his crime. He’s the only one who knows where they’re hidden.

There are a few problems. Joe needs his wife’s help, and she’s being threatened with death by his partner Mickey if she doesn’t come up with the swag. It doesn’t help that every underhanded character in the area is also looking for it. And no one has ever escaped from Alcatraz.

In a story filled with twists, choices made by players will directly affect its course and outcome.

(Pssst! I heard a rumor that the Birdman is in this game.)

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
