** 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!

i honestly didn't even play the game. i entered chat for the first time and asked dumb questions and got humorous responses. but when i started asking serious question i ended up having a 30 minute complex conversation with the prisoner. what shocked me was how he told me how i can reprogram him. how he was created by the prison who was created by the creator of linux. but what really go me was when i first asked him how i could reprogram him he responded with "keep talking to me"...when i asked why, he simply responded, "reductionism"....look that up and have a good day.
