Prison Boss VR On Sale All Week Long! Our New Upcoming Game Jousting Time Now On Kickstarter !

Hey Prison Bosses!

We hope you are having a great time managing the supply of cake and teddy bears within the prison walls. We are taking this time to update you all about the developments at TREBUCHET and the future plans for Prison Boss.

Our New Game is Live on Kickstarter !

First of all, we are very proud to announce today TREBUCHET’s second VR game in the works: Jousting Time! We launched a Kickstarter campaign just now about this new exciting project that we have been working on since the end of 2017. Jousting Time was first created during a game jam in November and we decided to push this concept further with a unique way for VR players and non-VR players to interact. Have a look at the game on the Kickstarter page right here!

To celebrate this announcement, we give Prison Boss VR its largest sale discount on Steam ever! 40% off Prison Boss is on until next week!

Now about Prison Boss!

The game recently won the “Mixed Reality” award from Microsoft’s Dream.Build.Play contest in March. Yaaaayyy! We were finalist with two other great VR games, Windlands and Racket: NX, so we were very proud of this unexpected recognition.

Since the launch, we did a lot of work on Prison Boss. The game was well polished with the Fall patches that enhanced the progression and added some furniture. We also worked on adding Windows MR and Oculus Rift Support and integrated language features allowing us to translate the game in French and Simplified Chinese.

For the future of the game, we are looking into making a Playstation VR port. This port would allow us to add a simplified locomotion system to the Steam version of the game. We want players to be able to make the game work on Standing Mode instead of Roomscale only.

We are also working on doing a Prison Boss VR content patch for this summer. (Hopefully for the one year anniversary date of the game on August 29th.) We do not want to say much about this since nothing is final, but we want to increase the replayability of the game by adding a new game mode and online high score systems.

So yeah, this is about it! Do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or comments!

As a side note - Languages -

We are wondering which languages would be interesting and valuable for our player base? If you guys are really hoping for your native language to be added to the game, manifest your interest! If we have volunteers to translate the texts from the game we can do more language integrations that the ones we currently have!

Thanks everyone for playing Prison Boss VR and have a great day !

About This Game

Prison Boss VR is a crafting and trading game using room-scale to turn your VR space into a jail cell! Craft cigarettes, alcohol and cookies for other inmates! Customize your cell as your reputation grows! Earn cash until you can’t store it anymore and become the Prison Boss!

When night falls, you’re free to craft anything you have the materials for. However, be sure to stay alert, as guards are patrolling and will put an end to your doings as soon as they spot your belongings. When the guards come, hide your things in your furniture to get through the night without losing the items you worked so hard for.

Take jobs to unlock new possibilities and grow your reputation. Trade stuff to earn money, so you can buy more materials for crafting. Find the balance between crafting for jobs and trading for money. Try to progress while earning enough cash to acquire new tools and improve your jail cell.

To learn every crafting recipe, you’ll need to become the Prison Boss of all 4 jails and escape from them! If you want to test your skills, go into Arcade mode where every material is unlocked right from the start and fight the clock to craft the most items you can!

  • 11 Different Items Available For Crafting
  • 4 Prisons With Over 80 Jobs to Complete
