“It manages to draw the player in, not only because a prison escape is impressive, but because escaping from Alcatraz is especially daunting.”
Snackbar Games

“Gene Mocsy and Daedalic should be proud, as this is easily one of the most intriguing point-and-clicks around.”

About the Game

1954: Alcatraz – The cash is out there. But who will get it?

Joe's doing 40 years on Alcatraz for a heist on an armored truck. The loot is still hidden out there, but only Joe knows where it is. In the streets of San Francisco, Joe's ex-accomplices and his wife are eager to find the stolen money. Who will get their hands on the dough?

In this interactive Point & Click adventure by Daedalic Entertainment and Irresponsible Games - the team of Gene Mocsy - Joe and his wife Christine will be playable characters. Players will decide between love, treachery, life and death: will Christine assist Joe during his prison break? Will they recover the fortune together? Or will they succumb to greed? Will Christine deceive her husband, taking revenge for all the disappointments and a marriage that brought her nothing but hardship? Will she just turn her back on Joe and hit the road with his former accomplices? Or will Joe gain everything in the end?

1954: Alcatraz offers all what makes a great adventure: challenging puzzles, a mature crime story with a dynamic plot and various possible outcomes, and a whole bunch of shady characters: brutal felons, making life on The Rock even harder for Joe, while outside not only his partners-in-crime but also snoops and cops are after the money and Christine. The cinematic San Francisco of the 1950s, caught in a gritty comic style is a harsh place. But it's also a place where 1954: Alcatraz can also pay homage to history and zeitgeist, in form of the Beatnik culture and other contemporary themes.

An interesting adventure full of difficult decisions and moral quandries which are as challenging as they are thought-provoking. The voice-acting is rough for some characters, but the quality of the two main stars Christine and Joe shines through. A traditional yet enjoyable point-and-click adventure. For more check out this gameplay vid showcasing the first 30 minutes of the game.

This is the only game I have ever played that actually lets you experience an old school prison break.

This point and click adventure is not particularly difficult, but it is very nicely done. Music is great, voice acting believable, art style is charming, and the story is engaging. The different endings and the few choices you can make throughout the game make it engaging as well. The noir style is very beautifully made. The game is charming, but at the same time has certain violent and "grown-up" aspects.

The puzzles are pretty self-explanatory and realistic, so it probably doesn't serve a challenge, especially for those who have played this kind of games before. I was stuck once, but it was rather a game-play mechanic I didn't properly realize.

Strongly suggested for people who are into prisons and noir style.

This is on of my favorite games this year. The setting is 1950s San Francisco. You play from two perspectives: Joe - A prisoner at Alcatraz, and Christie - his wife. They both run afoul of bad guys and meet some interesting charactors (one was a real person). The graphics are cartoony and really nicely done. Sounds, and voice acting ditto. While the locals are limited, they are beautifuly done and fun to explore.

If you like games set in others times, funny, or adventure games in general : Get this one!

A nicely done point and click adventure game, with great actor voices, nice characters, easy enough puzzles what not makes you to give up the game too early. the graphics are mix of 2d hand painted artwork and 3d characters. the story is simple but the time You play with this game makes it more interesting. I'm still at the beginning in the game, but already can say that, it worth to buy, and it brings You the quality of entertainment what the developer team Daedalic Entertainment usually do. I can highly recommend this game!
