It’s a prison break game about two men, Vincent and Leo, incarcerated in an American prison. Vincent is a cool-headed strategist who solves problems using his words rather than his fists, while Leo is a young hothead who would rather strike…

Co-op jailbreak drama A Way Out finds its way out now

According to it's launch trailer, A Way Out isn't officially launching until tomorrow, but that's just what the man wants you to think. Mental prisons, y'see? Boxes within boxes...

A Way Out is a co-op prison break game from Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons dev

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is one of the best co-op games I've ever played, which is remarkable because it's a singleplayer game. One of its creators, film-maker Josef Fares, has announced a new game as part of Electronic Arts' EA Originals indie label. A Way Out [official site] is a split-screen two-player prison break game, so naturally I'm calling it Brothers: A Tale…
