Patch 1.1.0 - Furniture Madness and Oculus Support

Hi Prison Bosses,

We have some pretty exciting stuff for you! Today is the release of patch 1.1.0. In this patch, you will have access to exciting new content as well as some bug fixes to make the experience of becoming a prison kingpin better.

First, we have added 6 new pieces of furniture and a progressive Arcade Mode. You will discover these as you progress through the game. As for the Arcade Mode, while until now it was unlocked after completing the whole game, it will now be unlocked after completing the first prison. As the players unlock new items to craft and pieces of furniture, they will be added to the Arcade Mode.

Second, the biggest change added to the game will be the new morning search features, where each morning the guards will search the players’ cells. Many players noted that the game was a bit too easy since they only had to skip to day when a guard was approaching, therefore avoiding any searches. By including morning search, the players will need to be savvier and think of how to organize the things they craft and the furniture within their cells.

Third, prison 1 has been rebalanced by adjusting the objectives and rewards, and by reducing the numbers of tiers needed to complete the prison. It is important to note that any game saved before the patch notes are released will be preserved.

Finally, in response to players’ feedback, a new tutorial system will be implemented, which will allow players to learn how to craft items as they encounter them in the game. This will make the learning experience more natural and progressive. New players will also be able to jump into gameplay faster.

And at last, we are also launching the game on Oculus Rift! We have tested the game with three sensors that allows players to replicate the playing experience of the Vive.

So, have fun and most of all, try not to drop your bobbys!

EDIT : To Oculus users who encountered an issue saying that they need to check their internet connection, this has been resolved in an update at 9:10PM EST. If you don't get the update, try to restart Steam. Thank you for your understanding!

Patch 1.0.2

Hi to all juice lovers!

We issued a small bug fix patch today and here are the patch notes:

  • Fixed a bug which stopped the game’s progression when there is an error in the creation of a save file.
  • Improved the display of some of the in-game texts to make it more readable and prevent UI display glitches.

Thank you to the community who made us aware of these errors and we will continue to upgrade the gameplay in the weeks to come!
