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!

Jailbreak is nearly done, so we've been overcome with generosity! So we're giving away games! For Christmas! Exclusively on ModDB! And it's really easy!

Posted by Wills on Dec 21st, 2009

Well, it's Christmas! And what's Christmas all about? Shamelessly giving away Games to get votes! Wait... What? It's a Christian feast commemorating the birth of Jesus? Pah! GAMES!! VOTES! You want some a new fangled sexy game for Christmas? Then get involved in our ridiculously simple competition below!

And don't forget to vote for us in the ModDB Awards 2009!

Maybe you've been dying to play Fallout 3, or perhaps Left 4 Dead 2? Dragon Age? Modern Warfare 2? Borderlands? The choice is yours. The only stipulation is; it has to be on Steam. The Jailbreak team will be the judges, and I will personally be purchasing and gifting the game to you on Christmas day if you win, and will private message the winner to transfer the gift!

The Competition:
We're a fan of Haiku's. We think you ModDB lot are rather clever. So... We're combining the two. All you've got to do is post in the comments section below with a three line Haiku about Jailbreak. Here's one to get you going:

Example wrote:A competition,
There could be many entries,
Yet more work for Wills

As easy as that! So get posting! The closing date for entries is Midnight, GMT on Christmas Eve! As a special bonus, EVERYONE who posts an entry, will get Jailbreak: Source 0.6, three days early!

Don't forget to add yourself to our Mod Watch if you haven't already! And if you fancy getting more involved in our community, then join our forums over at or learn something new about the Source Engine from the Jailbreak Blog!

JailBreak: Source, sadly,
Was postponed due to problems.
I cried bucketloads.

I like dinosaurs,
My friend likes robots with guns,
JailBreak: Source has both.

The evil robots
Will die by my sharp claws,
Or I could use guns.

Those wicked dinos
Shall be utterly destroyed
By my big weapon.

Call of Duty 6
Has Nukes, JailBreak has robots.
Thus it is better.

I like JailBreak: Source,
But I’ve run out of haikus.
