''[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=1 Jailbreak]]'' is the first webcomic under Creator/AndrewHussie's {{Troperiffic}} ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'', originating in September 2006 as a humble InteractiveComic game run by Hussie and played by friends of his on an early precursor to the current ''MSPA'' forums. It stars an otherwise nondescript man trying to escape a [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} strangely built]] jail, which ''[[RunningGag isn't]]'' rife with pumpkins.

One of the rules of the game was that Hussie had to pick the very first suggested command for each move, no matter how unfunny or preposterous. It stars an otherwise nondescript man trying to escape a [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} strangely built]] jail, which ''[[RunningGag isn't]]'' rife with pumpkins.


* {{Retcon}}: Technically, despite the ending coming years after Hussie started writing ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' and ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', elves and the "First: Be the Pony" gag debut here.

Added DiffLines:

* NoNameGiven: Just about all of the main characters. The [=MSPA=] wiki even refers to the three before the reset as "The First Guy", "The Other Guy" (the one who built Logorg), and "The Drill Guy".


* PaintingTheMedium: Like the comic it was based on, the soundtrack refuses to acknowledge its own existence despite clearly being visible by not allowing listeners to purchase the tracks. [[spoiler:Except for one track, but it costs $999.99 anyway to discourage purchase.]]

* MinimalistCast: There's only 10 characters in the story, major or otherwise (the 3 prisoners, the 3 children, the 2 elves, the guard, and the pony). While this makes sense considering it's a smaller story, it can be a bit jarring compared to ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'''s and especially ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.
