Hamburg, Germany - 12 th March 2014: 1954 Alcatraz, the noir adventure game from Daedalic Entertainment and Irresponsible Games is available now through digital download portals for PC and Mac. To celebrate the launch, the studio have released a brand new trailer giving players a taste of the love and crime story at the heart of the game.  

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!

Alternating between the two main characters, Joe and Christine, players will have to make tough moral and action choices that will directly influence the course of the story resulting in surprising twists, multiple puzzle solutions and different endings. Touching on the social topics of fifties America, 1954 Alcatraz combines a compelling story with point and click gameplay to deliver a thrilling adventure.  

1954: Alcatraz is available now on Steam for PC and GOG.com for PC and Mac at £16.99.
