Our videos of 1954 Alcatraz

Our videos of 1954 Alcatraz

Published by point and click expert Daedelic but developed by Irresponsible Games, 1954: Alcatraz doesn't completely share the 2D legacy of the German publisher and developer found in series like Deponia or The Whispered World, to name but two. The story is set in the fifties with a jazzy atmosphere that tries to remain faithful to the police detective movies of the time, but it seems to lack a little something to make it really appealing. Joe and Christine, respectively convict in Alcatraz and girlfriend, will have to work together, which means both characters are playable and switchable at any time. The important of choices is said to have an impact on the way the story unfolds and there are multiple endings. That being said, the first German reviews are rather disappointing, so don't expect this new game to be as interesting as Daedelic's other successful titles. Here are a few videos for you to judge.

Instead of complaining, since you're the one and only having problems, why don't you just leave and save us some bandwidth?

I'll save you the trouble though, banning speed is much more efficient than our download speed. :)

Note that complaining is one thing, behaving like a douchebag is another. No one has any problem to download or stream our videos but you. If they had though, they would know how to express it in a polite and respectful manner, which you have never been able to do in the 20 days of your presence here. Let me remind you that you are actually paying nothing for a service we provide for free. As a result, we owe you absolutely nothing and we certainly aren't going to look into it considering the way you've dealt with it since your very first comment.

Since I'm a really helpful guy, let me give you a hint: maybe you should blame the country where you're from, just saying.

Please, never come back, we don't like your kind - and by that, I mean ungrateful selfish kids. :p

Some reading for you as a farewell gift:

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Fuck!!! it just came to me, this type of Micro Transactions Match Making (MTMM) based system will mostly be used to explore children and teenagers. And other companies will follow suit. Jesus... (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases". Today is a really fucking bad and depressing day. (1 Hour ago)

    docLEXfisti Yes, EA totally ruined that franchise. DS1 was awesome, DS2 was still great, DS3 was... different (3 Hours ago)

    nostradamus *i mean dead space 2. from people who jumped from the first expecting a same game, felt a bit lukewarm a nd a game that was molding it self for the tropes of that gen. (4 Hours ago)
