Steam Stats of Prison Architect

prison architect

Hello, in this post I will show some details about Steam games I dug up on the internet. Mostly trivial stuff like stats and how much time they were played. You can find related content when you query Steam stats on Google.

Prison Architect

In the first series of the Steam stats, I will show Prison Architect. Prison Architect is a game in which you build up a prison. You need to run the prison in a good manner. Some inmates are really dangerous, messing around and starting a fight. You need to secure the prison from other threats like murder, theft committed by the inmates. There are several ways to achieve this, like increasing the frequency of the cell searches or steel detectors’ count. The game goes on in a 2D environment. It at the first belonged to a different game developer company but Paradox Interactive bought the game and now selling it under its name.

There are many concepts at the game like gang groups, exporting, solitary confinement, inner safety of the prison, and escapes from the prison. In the end, you enjoy micro-managing it. I like this game since it has the same notion as collect-and-build games like Age of Empires or Banished with a little difference. You don’t collect natural resources here but just buy.

I would like to publish a post about tips and tricks of the game. I can say if you already like the economy games, it would charm you. Since I was a toddler, I really enjoyed simulation and economy games. There are many details about managing your prison. The more you play the more you learn.
