These graphics might have been a bit simple for 1994, but everything else makes sense in Cinefix’s video re-imagining of The Shawshank Redemption as a point and click game.

An old 50s prison environment would have been interesting and large enough for a game like this, and 1994 was pretty great year for the genre. Not to mention the plot. But you might not watch if you haven’t seen the movie yet. It’s one of those rare movies where spoiling the end could really ruin the experience, so heads up!
