Prison Architect is going to full release this October



Prison Architect is bloody brilliant, and it isn’t even done yet. It’s a Tycoon-style management sim with a firmly tongue-in-cheek sense of humour, and it’s been in early access for almost three whole years now.

Since 2012, the game’s gone from totally playable to possibly one of the best management sims to come out this decade, and now the long journey of development is almost at an end.

Developer Introversion have announced the game will be hitting full release this October in a video for the latest update, Alpha #35. It’s a bit weird it skipping the entire beta phase of development, but then again it’s not like those words have meant anything for a long time now.

Alongside the announcement of the release date, the video also shows more immediate improvements to the game such as a refined gang system. Mainly it's two guys talking absolute bollocks to each other, but that's just par for the course with Introversion. It's worth watching, nonetheless.

Look, I like Prison Architect a lot, if you hadn’t noticed.
