As alluded to above, Rimworld looks like Prison Architect---the first publicly available builds of Prison Architect were out and about quite a bit before Rimworld was first shown off. That being said, both games employ some superficially similar mechanics, requiring similar interfaces and maps, leading to similar ways of displaying information and, therefore, a similar look overall. While other choices could have been made (i.e. Prison Architect could have been made less cartoony, or Rimworld might have been neon green), the similar appearance is not really that remarkable.

it is uncanny, I assumed that they both used the same off-the-shelf engine of some sort..
