Prison Architect review: Warden's pet

Hayden Dingman | Oct. 7, 2015
Prison Architect finally finished serving its three-year Early Access sentence.

Bottom line

Tack Prison Architect up on the wall alongside Crypt of the Necrodancer and Minecraft and Kerbal Space Program—“Early Access games that actually released and weren’t completely terrible or half-finished.”

Quite the opposite, in fact. Prison Architect is a mostly-honest and unflinching look at our modern society and its approach towards prisoner rehabilitation...or lack thereof. It’s a fascinating game, in no small part because it so expertly casts a real-world debate in video game terms and in doing so forces players to examine their own beliefs.

And it’s a hell of a lot of fun, besides.
