Alcatraz -- has there been a more infamous prison? Immortalized in movies from the likes of Point Break to The Rock, the Bay Area's notorious penitentiary hasn't featured in too many games, so it's exciting to see screenshots of Daedalic Entertainment's new adventure game 1954: Alcatraz.

The studio behind 2012's Yesterday has me immediately interested due to my love of the noir-ish setting and the tantalizing idea of breaking out of Alcatraz. The game stars Joe, who is eager to escape the harsh confines of the Rock after being sentenced to 40 years in prison after a successful armed robbery.

Joe's plan relies on his wife Christine but she's being threatened by Joe's partner in crime Mickey, who want's to know where Joe stashed the loot. It sounds like a great idea; busting out of Alcatraz has been the stuff of myths and urban legends and the setup sounds like there's the opportunity to have multiple character's working in tandem. We'll see if Joe makes it out in late 2014.

Escape from 1954: Alcatraz

San Francisco is an underused setting in games. I still need to play Driver: San Francisco, but I'm not sure how much it takes advantage of the city. Daedalic's new adventure game 1954: San Francisco seems to, as you split p...more

Former Destructoid Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester left us years ago, but even today his presence is felt on the site. This morning, he linked to what was originally thought to be a hysterical bug in The Wolf Among Us that you'v...more

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...more

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...more
