Campaign Story[edit]

The perfect place to start for new players.

Escape Mode[edit]

You can now load any prison, and attempt to escape from it, in this brand new game mode. Steam customers can load any Steam Workshop prison, or even use the 'Random' button to be sent to a random steam workshop prison. (Experimental) There is a 'HELP' button that you can click on, in the bottom right of the screen.

Use WASD to move around, and aim with the mouse.

You can steal weapons and tools from all the rooms you'd expect. Stash your contraband to avoid being caught. Earn Reputation points by starting fights and smashing up furniture. You will receive bonuses for knocking people unconscious, and additional bonuses for kills. Spend those points to upgrade your character with any of these reputations:

  • Strong
You hit harder
  • Tough
You can take more hits
  • Deadly
You have a chance to kill with one hit
  • Quick
You can run faster (hold SHIFT)
  • Instigator
Nearby prisoners will fight when you do
  • Skilled Fighter
You can disarm opponents
  • You can also spend rep points to recruit other prisoners to your group. They will follow you around and will assist during fights.
  • If you have a digging tool you can dig an escape tunnel from the toilet in your cell.
  • Win the game by escaping with your entire team.

Collectables[edit]

There are two types of collectable item in the game. As you discover them they will be added to the Extras menu.

  1. Polaroids : All story based polaroids. Some are shown during cutscenes. Some only occur in the sandbox and must be found.
  2. Game Bible : The game design notebook has been scanned and can now be found throughout your prison. Keep your eyes out for scraps of paper on the floor within the sandbox. Click on those scraps to unlock another page.

Special Wardens[edit]

You can now select from one of six wardens, when creating a new prison. Each Warden brings a special ability to the game.


The Warden
The default warden, offers no special abilities.
The Lobbyist

Rita

Translations[edit]

We are working to translate the game into as many languages as possible. More languages will be coming in the first update.

We currently have translations for: English, Czech, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese

Education grant (continued)[edit]

The education grant has been rebalanced and made easier. You now need 10 prisoners to pass the foundation course, and 1 prisoner to pass the general education course.

Event System (continued)[edit]

The event system has been rebalanced and is now much less destructive. Specifically, the 'politician demand' event and the 'Virus outbreak' event have been nerved. Events occur far less frequently. Many other small tweaks to make the event system better.
