Prison Architect


In Prison Architect you are the designer of a a brand new prison. You start with just an empty plot of land and some cash and from there you have to build and run prison that will cater for you prisoners’ needs – this includes making sure that they don’t escape!

However, the more dangerous each prisoner is, the more money you’ll be given from the state, however this means they’re more likely to cause trouble and riot which negatively affects the value of your prison.

It’s fiendish top-down strategy game with distinctive graphics and a fun style, which juxtaposes its morally dubious subject matter – in Prison Architect things can go wrong quickly and spectacularly, so it might be worth hiring some armed guards and building a morgue just in case.
