There was a game of the same title released by an independant company in Britain called Risk Takers (about 2002). The idea behind the game was from an ex-con called Terry Coss.

Apparently he meant the game to have "a serious message" and the characters in the game "are trying to get out of jail....and as they travel about the board, players learn more and more about the frustrations and reality of prison life". Coss also had a message; " I was determined to do something for younger people, to make sure they realized what prison was about and to take away the glamour that TV put across".

The game was a really boring one and, imho, not worth a quarter of the selling price.

I am wondering if this game is similar or if Coss had anything to do with it ?
