Hamburg, March 11th, 2014. As of today 1954: Alcatraz – the new point & click adventure from Irresponsible Games and Daedalic Entertainment is available worldwide on Steam and GOG.
A trailer, also published today, will give players a first impression of the game that puts them right into the heart of a love & crime story in 1950’s San Francisco:
1954: Alcatraz offers two playable characters – Joe and Christine –, multiple endings and multiple solutions to many puzzles. That and a mature story about much more than just a heist, armed robbery and a break-out from the world’s most secure prison – The Rock.
Players can decide whether Joe’s wife Christine helps him to break free and secure all the money, which is still out there, hidden in a secure place somewhere in the streets of San Francisco, for a happy future, or whether Christine starts cheating on her husband, not only to get all the money for herself, but also to start new romantic adventures with one of Joe’s former partners and friends.
Will Joe go wild? Will he use violence and trickery to escape from Alcatraz? Or will he rely on his silver tongue?
It’s all up to the player – embedded in point & click adventure gameplay and a mature crime story that also touches social topics of the 1950’s zeitgeist, such as social structures and even racism and homosexuality.
1954: Alcatraz is now available on Steam for PC and on GOG for PC and Mac for US$19.99/ €19.99/ £16.99/ RUR399, including a full localization in English and German, as well as French and Russian subtitles.
