Prison Architect Themes & New Tab Is A Cool Extension With 4K Wallpapers,And More Amazing Features.
Prison Architect is a private prison construction and management simulation video game developed by Introversion Software.It was made available as a crowdfunded paid alpha pre-order on September 25, 2012 with updates scheduled every three to four weeks.
The game is a top-down 2D (with a partially 3D mode) construction and management simulation where the player takes control of building and running a prison. The player is responsible for managing various aspects of their prison including building cells and facilities, planning and connecting utilities, hiring and assigning staff, including a warden, guards, workers, and more. The player needs to recruit staff to unlock more aspects of the game. The player is also responsible for the finances of their prison, and for keeping their inmates content. The player's role is of both architect and governor with sandbox micromanagement themes such as choosing where to put lights, drains and how they connect together. The player is also able to add workshops to the prison as well as reform programs that reduce the specific prisoner's recidivism rate. The player tells the prisoners what to do indirectly by setting their schedule. The game takes inspiration from Theme Hospital, Dungeon Keeper, and Dwarf Fortress. The player can also allow additional conditions to be applied to their game (such as simulated temperature, gang activities) to increase the difficulty of the game and to simulate a prison in conditions nearer to reality. A player's prison is graded by an ingame report.
