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.
