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!

Post news Report RSS Jailbreak's Got "Talent"!

Jailbreak is hosting a Talent Show! There's a prize for the best act! Also, the latest events in Jailbreak-land and news about Jailbreak 0.6.1!

Posted by on

It's been a crazy few weeks in Jailbreak-land. We've had a Karaoke night, a Poetry night a Kiss Chase night, a Romeo and Juliet Reenactment night (hats off to the fine lady organizer of those, PLGG who's done a sterling job as the events coordinator and who also edited the videos!) and most recently, Swashbuckling Saturday! (which PLGG didn't organize, she has to have a week off sometimes!) Each event has been hilarious and immense fun, with queues to join the primary server lasting all night.

Scroll down past the videos for information about the upcoming Talent Event and the latest competition and prize!

The map will be available for download upon connect via a quick download server, but chances are, it will be hosted on the forum as well at Jailbreaksource.com

Hah, I really feel like doing something. I can make incredibly stupid jokes and sing badly and strange voices.

Also, I like how you keep the community alive with events like these. Keep it up!

We're setting up a 24 player server for the night, and if there's more acts than open spots, we'll run a second round of acts later in the evening.

The night will be run exactly like a talent show, with a presenter, a panel of judges, an audience, spotlights, stage doors and... surprises! We'll be filming everything too!
