The “Golden Gate”, the opening of the San Francisco Bay with the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge, was a symbol of freedom for many people. Cynically, prisoners of the infamous Alcatraz can enjoy a beautiful view on this monument at their prison yard. Right there, players slip into the role of the prisoner Joe.
"1954: Alcatraz" takes place in San Francisco of the 50’s. Joe was sentenced to 40 years imprisonment due to an armed robbery and he is eager to break out of "The Rock". Therefore, he needs help from his wife Christine who is facing her own problems in San Francisco. Their gangster fellow Mickey threatens Christine to kill her if she refuses to hand over the swag. However, where is the prey? Joe only knows where the hideout is and, therefore, the entire North Beach is searching for the jackpot.
Will our hero be successful in the race for the loot? No prisoner was able to break out of Alcatraz before. In addition, drug deals, blackmails, suicide and homicide are daily fare
