The Prison Break Connection is a Stealth game where the player plays as a criminal named Lewis Huber* who is a bit of a weird character. Lewis has this mental issue where he does things which simply cannot be explained and this lead to him confessing to a high profile murder that he had just committed.
Lewis had been on the police's radar for quite a while because of his antics. He had an ability to turn into a mysterious mist-like fog for a brief few seconds which eventually made the cops keep an eye on him all the time but this did not stop Lewis from occasionally vanishing entirely and doing crazy things.
Lewis, apart from his mental and physical condition, was a very loving and caring husband. He would do anything for his wife, Diasy Huber*, literally anything. So while keeping a watch on Lewis, the police did realize this and were forced to bring his wife in as a bargaining chip to keep Lewis under control.
This is how much I have come up with as of now... I do have some of the gameplay mechanics ready in my head, but I think I would like to refine those more before I start sharing it with you guys. The next update should feature a little more details about the story, a little of the gameplay and some planning for the prototype on Unreal Engine.
I feel the prototype might be a little hard to pull off, especially since I haven't worked on Unreal in a looooong time. I feel like I am on track for now, I'm pleased with the backstory and hopefully everything works out the way I want it to.
That's it for today guys. My next update might be in a couple of weeks since I'm travelling for a few days, so I will be delayed in some work but I will have an update soon. Hopefully you like the story. Feel free to drop a comment down below if you have any suggestions. I will surely be reading all the comments and making changes accordingly.
Until then, adios.
