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! Read More...

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!

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.
