Alternate names: Prisoners, Hostages

The first video game about Captives was released in 1983.

Origin, Eidos Interactive and Ubisoft has published most of these games

Although there's a notable difference between the meaning of hostage and a prisoner, for now these should share the same tag as gameplay mechanics tend to make no difference between the two.
