What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There are still a lot of work need to do, our team had already spent nearly two years on this game. Therefore, we hope to make this game better basic on the experience and feedback of Early Access, and achieve many good ideas that we have but not done yet.
At the same time, we also hope to get the feedback of the game in Early Access anytime to make player get best game experience. We hope that we can make a fun game with our player’s help. So, we are glad to see your suggestions and feedback. Let this game better in the Early Access stage!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until about early 2018, "City of God I: Prison Empire" will take a year to complete the game and add more content. It includes more game modes and of course not limited to prison management.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“1, Story mode and sandbox mode
2, The new carrier system, and has more than 50 new vehicles
3, you will be able to trade with the major gangs in the city, cooperation or hostility
4, Every block in the city will continue to produce a variety of rare and priceless resources, these resources can not be purchased in the normal channels. You need to use your own power to control and influence these neighborhoods to get these resources.
5, We plan to join the sandbox mode and the plot mode is not the same play, we believe that the current resources and content sufficient to support the sandbox model on the basis of further mining and exploration.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Note! Game still need to be improved and optimized, please read carefully before buy this game: [/ b]
1.There are still some bug which won’t affect normal game. Some display error can be resolved by load save file, And you can connect us by our community or send massage to our Chief mailbox.
2. In Early Access, although we have completed most of the content, but we still not release all content, it not time yet. So after a difficult decision, we plan to release five streets in the city first, and the other 26 streets are temporarily locked which will be use in gang war at future.
3. Now we release the prison create and manage, also some steal mission is available.Some content will release after the Early Access begin, include the interplay between city gangs and warden, use power control the blocks of city and rule whole city with you own mind.
4.There may drop frame in some special time when there are too many people on the street/prisoners in prison. We have already notice and try to fix this problem and won’t be take long times.
5.A lot of people may asked “Why you don’t release the street that we had already seen the poster?” Yes, you can make interactive with almost hundred building in all 31 blocks, but there is gangs competition which we are working on it now and release soon, so we locked 26 blocks.
6. In Early Access we only provide Simple Chinese version, the English and Traditional Chinese version will available soon(We had already find some people work on it)
7. There may a lot of thing that you may not understand. All those problems will be resolved through the Prison Management Handbook (You can find this book in your warden’s bag) and the mission guide. There is no Beginner's guide in the game, so please forgive me( ^_^ ). All guide mission will only appear in the story mode, other modes won’t have any guide content.

Overall, the work is still in Early Access stage, please consider carefully before buy it. The future of the "City of God I: Prison Empire" will continue for a long-time optimization and improvement, whether you purchase or not, we hope you can give us your feedback or advice to make this game better. On behalf of PixelGangsta Studio Thank you!

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price will not change in the Early access version, after the official version on line(which means there will be more content )The price will rise a little bit.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“In the development process, we hope that players can give us advice or show their opinion, feedback and question through our STEAM community, Twitter,Facebook and the official forum. We will also post FAQ weekly to all communities to let those players who care and support “City of God I: Prison Empire” to know what's going on and what suggestions and feedback that we had adopted and put into our games.

About This Game

Build your prison freely and make prisoners work for you with maximum efficiency by providing all kinds of prison facilities.

In 1984, Crist City passed the law about the private prison. According to the law, the government should “sell” the prison to the company which offers the highest price. At the end of 1994, you became a warden of The Pompeii Prison which is located in Black Cloud district. As a warden of a private prison, your responsibilities include making plans about the whole prison and solving inmates’ all kinds of problems such as power supply, waste disposal and prisoners’ need for food, water and accommodation. As a matter of course, the prisoners are concerned about these problems. If the warden doesn’t provide leisure facilities, some prisoners may not focus on their work or even cause terrible acts which lead to riots, jailbreaks or suicides.

Build different kinds of workshops to keep your prisoners working hard and earning money from the market.

You can produce nearly 100 different goods from workshops which include drugs, Gatlin or even RPG. There are six main workshops (clothing, furniture, electric equipment, handcrafts, chemicals and firearms). You can sell those goods at the market and of course clothes and weapons are available for use.

Find the specially skilled prisoners from the government and police database, and make those people work in your prison.

These professional criminals such as thieves, robbers, hackers, killers, bombers and fighters can undertake some “special missions” for you. Those special tasks include breaking into a bank vault, robbing a jewellery store, kidnapping and blackmailing some wealthy merchants. Tailors, carpenters, technicians, chemistry professors and artists can work in different workshops according to their specialty and you can have them make valuable goods from raw materials. Lawyers, bookkeepers, actors, former police officers, singers, chefs and other “talents” can work in your prison as advisers. They can have negative influences on your prison.

Work as the warden to unlock different projects. Time your selling at the right time at the market. Make more money to expand your prison empire and use money to influence politicians and gangs in the city.

The warden can increase his skill points by developing daily work. These points can be used to unlock a new project which could be useful to your prison and allows you to make more money.
Prices of goods and materials will change every day. As a warden, you need to find the best moment to buy the materials with the lowest price and sell the goods with most profit.

There are also many gangs and criminal organisations in Crist City that will come to you to seek cooperation, trade and even help. When you make friends with some gangs, they may sell you some rare materials or even help you at important time. Obviously, there will be street gunfights between the gangs and some gangs may be eliminated by the others. It requires of your making balance between various gangs to avoid one gang’s domination of the city’s streets. If there is only one gang in the city, it may have a negative impact on your prison.

You live in the Crist City so try to have a look at every store on the street.

You can buy magazines which can increase your skill points and condoms at the grocery or convenience store, but you still need to be careful as there are still venereal diseases and AIDS exist in the game.

You can change your hairstyle in the barbershop.

You can eat different kinds of food such as Peking roast duck, cheeseburger, spaghetti, borscht, Japanese sushi and even Chinese snacks at various restaurants in the Crist City.

You can order a glass of Bourbon in a nightclub or have a bottle of wine.

You can stay at hotels which could increase your stamina and improve your physical condition.

Drink a cup of coffee, listen to the Prelude 1007 from Bach’s Cello Suite, enjoy the peace of the life.

Museums, theatres and aquariums require tickets. These places can light up your mood. Of course, benches in the park are free.

You can also have some fun at the nightclub with dancers and enjoy special services in the massage parlours, and even do illegal things in the foot spa centre.
