Deep Silver adopts Prison Break game

Brash's offcuts scooped up.

Koch Media has signed up to publish the Prison Break game that was being made by Slovenian developer ZootFly.

This had been on Brash Entertainment's books before the movie adaptation specialist went bust. We assume work stopped while ZootFly sued the defunct publisher for unpaid fees of $748,000.

Koch publishing label Deep Silver will now see the PC and next-gen game out of the door, although there's no indication of when exactly.

Prison Break, the game, follows agent Tom Paxton, who works for the shady organisation called the Company. He's sent to Fox River State Penitentiary to find out why Michael Scofield - star of the telly series - robbed a bank and got put in jail. Scofield, as you may know, had no real apparent reason to do so. Nor did he really need an elaborate tattoo inked all over his body. Oh or perhaps there is another reason why he did these things. Dun dun dun.

The story runs parallel to the first television series of Prison Break, then, and involves stealth as well as fast-paced action. And all of this, Koch promises, will be handled with "great attention to detail".

Watch out for the rapey one.
