Hamburg, November 4th, 2013: Acclaimed German
publisher Daedalic Entertainment today release new screenshots from
the upcoming noir point & click adventure
1954: Alcatraz for PC and Mac releasing early
Set in the vice-ridden Golden Gate City of the fifties,
1954 Alcatraz tells the story of Joe, a man
serving a long stretch in the notorious prison for armed assault.
Eager to escape ‘The Rock’ and claim the hidden spoils
from the heist, he soon realises his only chance to breakout is
with the help of his wife Christine.
Facing death threats from the couple’s partner in crime
Mickey if she doesn’t come up with the missing loot,
Christine has problems of her own. But where is the cash? Only Joe
knows; yet every crook, scam artist and chancer from North Beach is
now looking for it. The race is on!
Players will have to make tough moral and action choices that
will directly influence the course of the story, resulting in
surprising twists and different endings.
New screenshots for the game can be viewed and downloaded from
