The Breakout is a stylish 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 film-making style of classic movies like The Great Escape.
You play as Guy Kassel, an ex-thief whose life who joined the Air Force and rose 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, met by a ruthless Colonel who promptly executes the last POW who tried to escape. It’s an adventure game for adults, with real life and death consequences where your stealth, preparation and adequate supplies are vital to your chances of success.
The Alpha Demo is a short flashback sequence from the full game, in which you’ve just crashed in enemy territory and have to find a way to escape. It does a good job of showing off the point and click gameplay and the modern animated filmic style of the game. It’s shaping up to be a great point and click adventure, with an adult storyline, A-team style team-work and a wonderful graphical style.
