    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.

    Die Meute jagt die Beute

    Im San Francisco der 50er Jahre wurde Joe für einen bewaffneten Raubüberfall zu 40 Jahren Haft verurteilt und brennt darauf, aus Alcatraz auszubrechen. Hierfür benötigt er die Hilfe seiner Frau Christine, die jedoch mit ihren eigenen Problemen zu kämpfen hat. Ihr gemeinsamer Gangster-Kumpane Mickey droht Christine umzubringen, falls diese sich weigern sollte, ihm die Beute vom Überfall auszuhändigen. Doch wo befindet sich das Diebesgut? Einzig Joe kennt das Versteck und so macht sich ganz North Beach auf die Jagd nach dem Jackpot.

    Drogen-Deals, Erpressungen und Mord sind im San Francisco der 50er Jahre an der Tagesordnung.
