It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news about the tablet version of Prison Architect, but in an email sent out today announcing the game’s final update, the developers said that the tablet version is still in development and they’ll be talking more about it soon. That’s good news because I’m really looking forward to getting this game on my iPad both because it’s a very well made building and management game and because we don’t have many similar games on iOS.
If you haven’t heard of Prison Architect before, the game puts you in charge of building and managing a maximum security prison filled with all kinds of inmates – from the stable ones to the unstable ones. In addition to the normal mode, you can also play the escape mode where you have to escape from your own creation. The game is inspired by classics such as Dungeon Keeper, Dwarf Fortress, and Theme Hospital and has been very popular on PC. So, hopefully the game is not too far off because I’m really excited about this one.
