** Latest note... sadly Hector has been silenced. The pandora bot I was using for the prisoner chat has been exhausted and no longer responds. Sorry about that... it's hard coded into the game. Will try and replace it eventually...*

"Death Row" is basically a virtual pet "tamagotchi" equivalent, except your pet is a prisoner on death row. You have to try and reform him, get him healthy and improve his condition before he faces the electric chair.

Lots of little secrets and ways to help your prisoner it's not a huge game by any means but have some fun with it - the prisoner's AI results in some pretty random things happening.

To win the game you have to discover all 8 pieces of hidden evidence and email the governor for a pardon.

A few people have been asking about the artwork for the game - the icons , minigames and interface are mine, the wonderful character design and background artwork are done by my erstwhile colleague Tony Lowe , who also did the background arenas for Swords & Sandals II and is helping me with Swords & Sandals III as we speak. Brilliant art, Tone!

Very nice game

I didn't had time to play it whole,I admit.
But I can see how good it is.
Since I didn't checked it whole,I didn't discovered any bugs and so,thus I wont complain.

Very intresting.

It's quite a good game, but not easy as you will have to keep trying out everything. And afterwards, trying everything again as the same action can do different things.

Apparently lots of people are having trouble with raising work ethic.

Looking into the mirror when the health is low will lower health and work ethic.
However, looking into the mirror when health is high (above 50) will increase work ethic by 1.
Brushing teeth will increase health, but when it is already very high and you have the mirror, it will increase work ethic by 2. I'm not too sure about how high through, I only found out when his health was at 98.
Also, the TV sometimes increase work ethic. But it's risky as you could lose respect due to the fat guy.
So, get the mirror and increase health to increase work ethic.

Anyway, here are all the clues.
The window
The TV
The upgraded toilet
The corner of the bed after you got the blanket
The edge carpet
The plant
The rubbish bin
The leg of the table

You need to get all the clues and have eveything at 100 except energy to be able to get out of jail.

Good game.

You made me care about Hector and want to save him. Once I started unlocking stuff, I realized what kind of person he was and wanted to save him more. Some of the stuff was also interesting, like the AI. Occasionally, there was humor, like when I gave him broccoli. Also, it's not enough to find the evidence, you have to get Hector's stats up as well. That makes it interesting.

One problem: Sometimes the Jewel Thief game stays up and gets in the way of stuff, like when Hector goes to bed. I can't really click on anything or check on Hector because the game's still up.
