Other Information:

The warden is one of the most important staff members in any prison, and except for the CEO (which will not appear in the sandbox game), he is in charge. The Warden needs a designated office to be functional (it will take the name "Warden's Office"). He is needed to unlock the Bureaucracy tree, and is therefore essential for keeping your prison running and your prisoners happy. He also unlocks the tab of the regime of the prison so it can be changed. Having a warden also unlocks the available grants in the reports tab, which can be helpful in starting your prison.

You can only hire one warden. The warden can not be directly controlled by the player and only leaves his office for executions.

The warden being killed too often is a Failure Condition in sandbox mode,

Different WardensEdit

When you are starting a new prison, you are asked to choose which warden you want to have.

  • The Warden
The most balanced individual on the planet, he does his job and nothing else. People just call him The Warden.
The default warden, offers no special abilities.
  • The Lobbyist
The Lobbyist has friends in high places, and makes sure the more easily controlled prisoners end up coming his way.
Halves the likelihood of receiving prisoners who are Violent, Lethal, Volatile, Deadly or Fighters.
  • Rita
Ruthless and terrifying, Rita has a reputation for running her facilities through judicial application of fear. Rumours of her carrying a whip may be exaggerated.
Halves likelihood of prisoners being Stoical or Fearless. Prisoners are suppressed twice as quickly.
  • J. W. Periwinkle
Warden Periwinkle says he was a sapper in the war. He never says which war, specifically, but he certainly knows everything about digging tunnels.
Guard Dogs have a 50% chance of fully uncovering any tunnels they detect.
  • The Pacifier
The Pacifier has an unusual talent for being able to calm even the most violent individuals. Even being in the same room as him is enough to make people docile and compliant.
Reduces the overall temperature of your prison, making your inmates less likely to cause trouble.
  • Saphara Acknova
Saphara Acknova has a spotless reputation and a squeaky clean record. But behind the scenes, shady deals and under the table offerings are nothing uncommon for her.
Gets a small cut of the re-sale value of each piece of contraband found - Prisoners found with contraband will be 'fined' directly from their savings.
