Prison Architect was a lot more fun than I thought it would be and I really liked the prison setting. I haven’t played many games that are this silly and serious at the same time so the concept kept me interested and the variety is what kept me coming back. I can’t really justify the $30 price tag, I think it would be more reasonable at $20, but that’s just me. Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch a sale soon.

With all manner of pre-designed and freeform modes - and a haul of DLC included as standard - the last thing you’ll be doing with Prison Architect: Nintendo Switch Edition is hard time. The sheer amount of interconnected systems you need to track and maintain are as vast as they are intricate, but learn to spin its penal plates and you’ll have one of the deepest - and most rewarding - simulation games ever made at your fingertips.

Prison Architect is a blast. It offers an interesting thematic take on a bizarre sub genre of simulations, and while it retains the general complexity and what made that other game so good, it strips away all the fat, keeps it laser focused, and wraps it all up in a lovely usable user interface. It can be a hard knock life, and even with the tutorials you will still learn best by diving in and exploring, but Prison Architect is well worth the time investment required.
