The Day of Mocsy Is Upon Us! 11 Mar, 2014 / 1 comment

Update: 1954: Alcatraz is now available on Steam as well, at the same limited time $2 discount as GOG.com.

Two new adventure games co-developed by Gene Mocsy, the co-writer of Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island, have been released today!

The first release is 1954: Alcatraz, the first game by Gene Mocsy's studio Irresponsible Games (and co-developed by German adventure game developer Daedalic). The game has two lead characters, a man who must escape Alcatraz prison in 1954, and his wife, who is trying to avoid gangsters who are after the money that her husband stole. The game has multiple solutions to puzzles, which will affect the characters in different ways. 1954: Alcatraz is out now on GOG.com (currently discounted at $2 off it's usual $19.99 price tag), and will also be released in a few hours on Steam.

The second game is Perils of Man: Chapter One, the first chapter of a seven chapter adventure game about risks and consequences developed by IF Games with a game design by Gene Mocsy and Bill Tiller of Autumn Moon. Chapter One is currently available for free from iTunes for iPad and will be updated soon for support for iPhone and iPod touch devices as well. They also have expressed interest in releasing the game for Android and Windows, OS X, and Linux, and ask for people to post on their forums to express their interest in the game for these platforms.

    This is really neat, but that title took me for a one-second emotional roller-coaster.
    First eight letters: Whaaa, day of tentacle news?
    First ten letters: WHAAAAAA, MONKEY ISLAND NEWS?
    Eleventh letter: Oh. Of course not.
