It looks like the team at Inversion is invested in Prison Architect. They’ve been updating it regularly since their first release years ago and they’ve promised to continue doing so. I recommend the game wholeheartedly to that certain brand of gamer that gets satisfaction out of building intricate little machines and watching them go. It’s a unique sandbox game that has all the necessary ingredients to hook you, if you let it.
After some time with Prison Architect, I can’t say that that I’ve completely warmed up to the genre just yet. Still, that doesn’t mean I regret the time I spent playing it either. Even though Prison Architect has its share of flaws and limitations, it’s still a fun experience I’m sure fans of the genre will enjoy.
I experienced a small handful of bugs: most notably, I had to restart an entire chapter of the campaign because the game refused to recognize that I'd placed the correct number of chairs in a common room for an alcohol treatment program. None of those issues prevent Prison Architect from being an incredibly engrossing balancing act, a simulation with the ability to surprise, challenge, and sometimes horrify you.
