PRISONSCAPE - a pixelated prison adventure

Prisonscape is an adventure/roleplaying game about the harsh and brutal life in prison, made for PC, Mac, and Linux.  It's currently being Kickstarted (18 days to go, just over 20% of their funding total already achieved, at time of posting this.)

The game was heavily inspired by two HBO classics, The Wire and Oz and the art style inspiration was pulled from SNES classics such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6.

Chris Avellone (Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment) and John Romero (Doom 1 & 2) both have complimented our game and also backed the Kickstarter.  (When they say it's brutal, they're not kidding... which is why I haven't put the video directly on the blog.  If you, like me, have an aversion to gore, you may want to give it a miss.  Bearing in mind the creators of the above games, that may give you an idea about whether you're going to like this one.  The game features lovely pixel art as you can see in the gif below, but also seems to feature rather a lot of pixelated blood.)
