Stonewall Penitentiary "combines the horror of Saw and the mystery of Agatha Christie" into a mystery horror point-and-click adventure. There is a demo available right now and the game is set to launch late this year.

Developed by Unimatrix Productions, Stonewall Penitentiary is the fourth in the Storycentric Worlds series. The game features all the standard adventure game mechanics you'd normally expect from a game in the genre: exploration, player inventory, puzzle solving, and character interaction.

Stonewall Penitentiary puts the player in the shoes of the one they call William Thane. Mr. Thane gets himself stuck in a Saw-type situation where he's "trapped in an abandoned prison, held captive by a sociopath obsessed with justice".

The story goes:

"You wake up. The last thing you remember was lying in bed at home.  But you aren't home anymore.  Looking around, you quickly establish four things:  you're in a prison; your clothes are missing; your hands are tied; and you can't remember how you got here."

Full game features include exploration of an abandoned prison in order to "uncover its dark secrets" and escape with your head still attached (I presume). There are said to be many "interesting" characters for you to interact with. Additionally, the characters are "fully-voiced".

As it is in every game of the point and click variety, it will be expected of you to solve "a multitude of challenging puzzles". Your actions will have consequences, and there are said to be three different endings dependant entirely on your behaviour.

For all you completionists out there, there is a special post-game scene available only after all of the achievements have been unlocked. There's an hour-long soundtrack to keep you entertained during the 10+ hour story.

If all this tickles your fancy, you can download the game's demo right here. Stonewall Penitentiary will be available for PC via Steam, and on iOS and Android, sometime in the late 2017. Game's website is right here.
