This one has been a very long time coming. Prison Architect, a game we’ve been waiting to see on tablets for at least year, has finally soft launched on iOS and Android. In case you haven’t heard of this game before, the BAFTA award-winning Prison Architect has you building and managing a maximum security prison filled with all kinds of inmates—from the quiet ones to the murdering ones. In addition to the normal mode, you can also play the escape mode where you have to escape from your own lovely creations. The game is inspired by classics such as Dungeon Keeper, Dwarf Fortress, and Theme Hospital and has been very popular (and occasionally a bit controversial) on PC.
The game is being published by Paradox Interactive, which has made the game’s developers very happy because they wanted someone who understands how long-term support and iteration is crucial for the future of Prison Architect (which bodes well for us). The game will be free to download with additional content and gameplay modes available through IAPs. The game has soft launched in the Netherlands, and you can go grab it here.
