Jailbreak is simple: Two teams, two jails. When you kill a member of the opposite team, they respawn, locked up inside your jail. Lose, and you get executed!

Your objective is to imprison every member of the enemy team. The twist is, you can break out members of your own team, by fighting your way to the enemy jail and opening the doors! Likewise, your team mates can also escape through dangerous puzzles and routes!

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!

Damn. I remember anticipating this mod, and then playing it with almost nobody. What a shame.

Anybody else remember how long this game was in development? How it got some front page mentions and how people seemed pretty psyched about it?

Obviously, people prefer MINECRAFT and ZM_LILA_PANIC rather then good mods.

It's a shame this died. It looks fun and unique. I heard good things about it, but it was dead.

I still think if they add bots this would be revived as it give players something to play against while waiting for a full server.

If it's dead, can a member of the team release the Source code because this was a pretty awesome mod but still could have been improved.

Brilliant fun, made by some of the hardest working mod developers in the business.

The maps are amazing, characters and weapons polished and the gameplay is great with a full server.

Highly recommended.
