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!
Announcing Big Breakout Weekend! Competition! Jailbreak: Wars! Developer games! Hell, even Ellis (of L4D2) is playing Jailbreak!

So the servers have gone a little quiet of late, does that phase us? HELL NO! Will we sit back and be all like "Awww, people aren't playing as much as we'd hoped..." NO WAY! We love Jailbreak, we think you should too. So that's why we're holding the Big Breakout Weekend!
This weekend, starting Friday night at 7:30pm (GMT, UK Time), we'll be holding several scheduled games of Jailbreak: Source 0.6 on specific servers. All the developers will be playing, and we'll be turning on "all talk", so you can chat with us directly if you have a working, non-ear-raping microphone.
COUNTDOWN TO 5 Feb 2010 19:30:00 -0000
I'm also going to be running a giveaway! I'll be playing at six allotted times, on six different servers over the weekend. At any time, during any one of those matches, I'll be giving away one Steam game to ONE lucky player! So if you want a free game, GET PLAYING THIS WEEKEND!
Turns out that smooth talkin', lady lovin', zombie killin' badass Ellis from L4D2 is a fan of Jailbreak! He's gone out on a limb on his Facebook and YouTube pages with a direct plea to his friends to get more people playing, so if you don't want him to shove a 'nade up your southern bee-hind, ya'll best do what he says!
Shortly after the Big Breakout Weekend, we'll be launching the annual Jailbreak: Wars! This hotly contested clan tournament was won last year by (.fire). We're currently accepting clans for registration, so if you're in a clan and you like Jailbreak, then head over to our forums and sign yourselves up!
We're currently working on a patch to fix a number of the issues and concerns raised during the last three weeks. It will most likely be out within a couple of weeks, so make sure to watch out for it! We plan to fix/change the following elements:
