1954: Alcatraz Announced

1954: Alcatraz is an adventure game by Daedalic Entertainment and Irresponsible Games, a studio founded by Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island team member Gene Mocsy after Autumn Moon was reduced to one employee, founder Bill Tiller (creator of A Vampyre Story and Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island). Bill Tiller also reportedly contributed art to 1954: Alcatraz, and Pedro Macedo Camacho (composer of Autumn Moon's games) is composing music for the game.

The game is set in 1950s San Francisco, a man named Joe is sentenced to 40 years in Alcatraz for armed robbery. He's determined to escape, but no one has ever broken out of the infamous prison before. He'll need his wife's help, but she's got problems of her own, as a fellow gangster is threatening her life if she doesn't hand over the stolen money. But only Joe knows where it's hidden, and the entire North Beach is searching for the stolen money.

The game is expected to be released later this year.
