New game from Pixel Trip Studios
EUROGAMER explores 'The Breakout'
Release date: Late 2015
Sneak, steal, build and dig your way out of a high security Prisoner of War camp during WW2. How far can YOU get?

Visit our kickstarter page to pre-order the game and get great earlybird discounts and exclusive rewards including becoming an in-game character:

'Shot down behind enemy lines, Lt. Guy Kassel is captured and thrown into the most feared prison camp of all: Verdammen Hof. Hoping to regain his freedom and return home to his beloved fiancée, Guy teams up with a group of specialist escapees who devise their most daring breakout yet.'

The Breakout is a nail-biting point-and-click adventure that pays homage to the captivating storytelling and characterization of the classic Point n Click games of the 1990s combined with the tense filmmaking style of classic movies like The Great Escape.

You play as Guy Kassel, an ex-thief whose life of crime was turned around by his beloved fiancée. Successfully cleaning up his act, Guy joins the Air Force and rises to the ranks of Captain—only to be shot down and captured during a mission. The game begins as you arrive at a maximum security POW camp with a group of fellow repeat escapees. You are met by the ruthless Colonel who introduces you to the prison rules and then proceeds to execute the last POW who tried to escape—imparting a chilling warning: Any attempt to escape will be dealt with extreme measures.

During the game, you can roam around the camp, take note of daily guard routines, discover new areas in the camp, and use your ingenuity to collect and craft items to aid in your escape. However, this will not be easy: You will need the help of some of the prisons most notorious inmates . . . but first, you will need to earn their trust!

After nightfall, the camp becomes your domain—and Guy’s thievery skills come into play as you sneak out of your cell, past spotlights and guard dogs, picking locks and stealing tools as you go. If you are caught breaking any rules or sneaking around during lights out, your inventory will be confiscated and you will be thrown in the cooler. If you are caught trying to escape any of the perimeter fences, the tower guards will shoot on sight. However, as things get spooky and you discover the Colonel’s mysterious connection with an occult secret society, you realize that not all is as it seems.

hey guys, no developments on the Breakout yet but we have released another arcade game on greenlight called The Videokid. The hope is if this game does well then we can fund The Breakout ourselves and keep it indie ;)
