A Prison is where the game is set. You start, in Sandbox Mode at least, with a plot of land, a Deliveries and Garbage room and 8 workmen.

Components

A prison is composed of:

Tips

  • 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.
  • Individual jail cells are expensive, especially early on when funds are very tight. Save money by starting with a large Holding Cell instead, which can be shared between many prisoners at once.
  • 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!
  • Prison doors can be set with access rights - make sure your exterior doors are set to staff only.
  • Make sure that your prisons doesn't allow access to the outer edge of the map. Inmates will make a run for it that have they chance.
