What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have worked hard to build a game that tycoon fans will enjoy, with the depth and complexity players crave. Working with the community is the best way to ensure that our game is the best it can be. Early Access is our way to let the players check it out and suggest what we can improve.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While the final version release date is not yet set, we anticipate a full retail release of the game in the fall of 2021. The exact release date of the full version of Prison Tycoon might change based on the number of adjustments needed to the game based on the feedback players give us in Early Access.”

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

“We will use players’ feedback to perfect how different game systems function and interact with each other so that the game will provide an intuitive experience. We would also like to add extra features specifically for streamers so that they can play with their viewers while live.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the launch of Early Access, Prison Tycoon: Under New Management will be in a pre-launch Beta state, with nearly all features complete. It will be fully playable with most systems and mechanics functioning.”

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

“The price of the game during Early Access will be lower than the price of the full retail version.”

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

“We stay in touch with our community through the Steam forums. Patch notes and upcoming changes will be discussed in detail with the players, whose feedback will help us test new features and refine the player experience.”

About This Game

Design, build and run your own prison!

Plan and build your own prison from the ground up! Secure government grants, hire guards and staff and begin welcoming new prisoners in this reboot of the Prison Tycoon franchise.

The goal of a good Warden is not to punish their prisoners, it’s to rehabilitate them into productive members of society. In Under New Management, each inmate must work through their own issues that landed them in prison, and it’s your job to provide them with the help they need to get healthy.

“Prison Tycoon : Under New Management” is looking for a good Warden. Are you up for the job?

Choose a biome for your prison – “Tropical”, “Tundra”, “Taiga”, “Swamp” or “Desert” – each with their own unique challenges and environmental factors.

Build a huge prison, crafting every building, every room, and every path. Then furnish them as you like!. Be sure the layout you design makes efficient use of the power grid and water systems.

Hire expert staff to fill all kinds of roles in your prison. Assign them to work, promote the best and fire the rest.

Manage the economy of your prison: apply for loans to expand your facilities while managing the penitentiary policies to save money. Make sure you buy and manage your resources well to keep the staff and inmates well supplied.

Design and maintain the security systems of your prison and be ready for night escapes. Decide on the placement of cameras, watchtowers, and guards to make sure your prison is a safe place.

Monitor the well-being of your charges, ensuring they are happy and healthy. Make sure prisoners are getting proper nutrition and exercise, and staying warm enough during the cold winter months.

Maintain your facilities for proper functionality and repair them as they wear down over time. Your employees will help take care of repairs, cleaning, and gardening at your direction.

And don’t forget to rehabilitate the prisoners, that's what it's all about! This is achieved through a variety of therapies, from the zero gravity room to a hologram room. The goal is to help inmates address their issues and return to society.
