Jailbreak: In-Game in Arroyo
Jailbreak: New 0.4 Map, DeepCore
Jailbreak: In-Game in Woodneck

Jailbreak is a modification for Half-Life 2, it's simple: Two teams, two jails. When you kill a member of the opposite team, they respawn locked up inside your jail. When a member of your team is killed, they respawn inside the enemy jail.

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! The game goes back and forth until one team is entirely locked up, the losers executed (in a variety of customised ways), then the next round begins!

History of JB: Source

Jailbreak begin development in February of 2007, with Dogmeat coding, and Wills mapping, and the first release was made available to the public a mere three weeks later, with all the key features implemented and two new maps. Four months on, two more versions have been released, with many more features, alongside two more maps, and a new team member IZaNaGI has recently joined up.
