Edna & Harvey: The Breakout is an adventure game for Windows and Mac about a girl and her toy rabbit. Players of the game have to escape from a mental hostpital.

The Gameplay is similar to LucasArts' early 90's games using the SCUMM engine. The player finds himself in a 2D world. At the bottom of the screen is a list of verbs to be used and combined for solving puzzles.

The game began as a university project in Germany (Wikipedia). Although that version received an outstanding reception, the English game merely received a mixed reception with both average and low review scores, mostly due to the sloppy translation.
