CEO's letter

Gameplay

Description:

The CEO's letter is an introductory letter received from The CEO of Prison Architects Corp. when starting a new prison in Sandbox Mode.

Other Information:

  • None provided


It outlines basic information and a few starter tips on how new players can get started. It is presented to the player during the Bootstraps campaign chapter and every time a new sandbox prison is started, where the letter appears as part of the initial to-do list (top left of screen). The letter describes Utilities, information on the needs of prisoners (in this case about hunger), how to begin with just a Holding Cell instead of individual Jail Cells and information about the Warden.

Letter Text[edit]

 
Dear Sir/Madam,

Congratulations on completing your basic induction - you are now a fully qualified Prison Architect!
Soon you'll be designing, building and running your own prisons starting from nothing but an empty plot of land and a few stacks of bricks.
Before you get started, I thought I might share some important lessons with you.

1.  Every prison needs a [[Warden]] - he should be one of your first hires.
Build him a nice [[office]] and he'll open up a whole range of advanced facilities via the [[bureaucracy]] system.

2.  Individual jail cells are expensive, especially early on when funds are very tight.
Save money by starting with a single large [[Holding Cell]], which can be shared between many prisoners at once.

3.  Get your [[Kitchen]] and [[Canteen]] up and running before the first prisoners show up,
and be sure to hire some [[Cooks]] - nothing irritates a prisoner more than an empty stomach!

4.  Building a prison is an expensive undertaking, and you need to become a master of raising large volumes of money through grants and contracts.
You can access these grants through the 'Reports' screens.

That's about everything - good luck!

The CEO,
Prison Architects Corp.
