There's nothing quite like the rush of running, falling, jumping and crawling your way toward the release switch whilst under fire from rockets, railguns and lasers... then jabbing that switch and releasing all your team mates! Then finally watching as they all come running out of the open doors and beat the other team to death with Laser Cleavers! There's never a dull moment in JB, you're either fighting to stay alive, fighting to release your team mates, or fighting to escape from jail!

Really sorry buddy... I honestly thought Openday was finished... It's VERY finely tuned as it is, and is one of the best maps gameplay wise, it's going down really well on the server so far. When Map Pack #2 is released, I'll make sure to include the updated Openday.

Don't worry smokey, if you join a server it fills up pretty quickly (3-4 mins)... Likewise, make sure to join us in 10 hours time for Game Night!

Just wanted to say... Custom Map Night was amazing fun! We had around 50-60 players turn up and play throughout the night, over the course of around four hours... with one player KillerKan, playing for almost FIVE hours straight! Surely a record for Jailbreak! All the custom maps are fantastic fun, with one or three great standouts. I'll be planning some more Custom Map Nights for the future, so join our Jailbreak Steam Group and join in!

If this mod is so awesome, why are there 10 servers, with no one in them?

Is there some secret file that we missed? This mod is sorely under populated

Nope nothing secret, part of the reason is that we're very unsupported by US servers, as such, most of our players are European and the servers start to fill up from around 7:30pm UK Time/GMT. If you join the servers though, they do start to fill up! Likewise, if you join one of our Steam Groups, like the "Let's play Jailbreak" group, you can get some great games!
