Note: The Breakout will be dark, historically accurate and authentic. It’s not recommended for children.

Play as Guy Kassel, an ex-thief whose life of crime has been turned around by his beloved fiancée. Guy cleans up his act, joins the Air Force and rises to the rank of Captain, only to be shot down and captured during a mission. The game begins as you arrive at a maximum security POW camp with a group of fellow repeat escapees. You are met by the ruthless Colonel who introduces you to the prison rules and then proceeds to execute the last POW who tried to escape, imparting a chilling warning: Any attempt to escape will be met with extreme measures.

During the game, you can roam around the camp, take note of daily guard routines, discover new areas in the camp, and use your ingenuity to collect and craft items to aid in your escape. However, this will not be easy; you’ll need the help of some of the prisons most notorious inmates. But first, you’ll need to earn their trust.

After nightfall, the camp becomes your domain, and Guy’s thievery skills come into play as you sneak out of your cell, past spotlights and guard dogs, picking locks and stealing tools as you go. If you are caught breaking any rules or sneaking around during lights-out, your inventory will be confiscated and you will be thrown into the cooler. If you are caught trying to escape any of the perimeter fences, the tower guards will shoot you on sight.

However…things start to get spooky. Bodies disappear. And you realize that not all is as it seems. Soon, you’ll discover that the Colonel has a mysterious connection with an occult secret society, and that he has sinister plans for a mass sacrifice.

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.
