Video game offers players insight toward prison management

Prison Architect puts players in the driver's seat of controlling a correctional facility


By C1 Staff

A new video game being created by an independent developer puts civilians in the seat of prison administration, literally starting from the ground up.

Prison Architect, coming from Introversion Software, is currently available for purchase while still in the alpha stage of development, according to Digital Spy. Players start from scratch, choosing the size and shape of their prisons, before hiring staff and eventually housing inmates.

Much like in reality, players can accept grants in order to help fund their prisons. Micromanagement is a large portion of the game, as players have to balance improving the facility with keeping prisoners happy or else risk riots.

Since the game is still in development, the creators are taking feedback from players, offering the chance to have a say in the shape the final game takes.
