Screenshots and More Info

It’s 1954. Your name is Joe. You’re in Alcatraz.

Daedalic Entertainment has released new screenshots from its upcoming noir game Alcatraz 1954, a point-and-click adventure for PC and Mac to be released early in 2014.  

The game is set in the vice-ridden city of San Francisco in the ’50s. Joe, convicted of armed robbery and serving 40 years in Alcatraz, needs to escape in order to claim the loot, which he’s hidden away.

No one has ever escaped from Alcatraz.

To pull it off, Joe will need the help of his wife, Christine. But she has problems of her own. Mickey, also in on the heist, has threatened to kill her if she doesn’t come up with the stash.

There’s one problem: she doesn’t know where it is. Joe is the only one who does.

Joe also knows that others are seeking the heist’s hidden spoils. In fact, every crook and scam artist in North Beach is looking for it.

The race is on.

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. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
