A lot of this is going to come down on cultural lines. I'm not certain, but I'm fairly confident British prison guards don't carry firearms as standard and it's not something I'd want my guards in-game doing either. With the planned Riot Squad, I understand them being armed as they'll be dealing wit...

Re: More fist fights/brawls

In my prison, fairly small so far, I have metal detectors at entrances to cell blocks and communal areas (Yard, Cafeteria) so I barely see any stabbings or fights. I reckon there should be more ambient fights, such as small punch ups over a tray or food or a space in the shower, with neither inmate...

As I said in another thread, adding "cheats and tools" will undoubtedly create a lot of bugs which have no real effect on regular gameplay and from experience with other projects no amount of warning and alerts will stop people reporting them.

Seconding city builder. OpenTTD had to disable the ability to change GRF's mid-game because no matter how clear they made it that changing GRF's would cause problems and not to report any bugs after doing this, the bug reports kept coming in. It would be cool, but right now we're still alpha testing...

We'd need to have a tropico style "personal stash" system in place for this to be worthwhile to any degree.

IV has said they want to release a new version once a month, approximately. Big changes will take longer, critical bugs get fixed quicker.

IV have stated a few times that prison rape is something they're considering but are currently erring on the side of "not in the game". Rape is an incredibly difficult subject to tackle well and it's impact psychologically is complex and not very well understood, modelling that into the ga...

IV have said in interviews that they'll be keeping the games time vauge compared to our own. Whilst the look is sort of 1930s, you've got riot cops and the like. I'm sceptical if "real" prisoners will ever be in the game, nor what fun it will add over more generic "psychopath", &...

That would get crazy spammy with more than 20 prisoners. Perhaps have the options set in the Regime screen instead. Good idea though.

You get a boxed copy with all tiers after Physical Pleasures as well, you can see the list of things you'll recieve on the right of each tier. It's referred to as "special limited edition Game DVD and Soundtrack" so presumably only enough will be made as are purchased. There might be a phy...

If you could play it, you would understand that the current build would make an awful demo. Perhaps maybe they can take a leaf out of Kerbal Space Program and choose a stable build to be the demo rather than building one specifically, but a game like this probably needs a properly & separately d...

You build them anywhere you like. They're not implement aside from increasing your income so some folks just build Workshop Farms in a remote sector of the prison.
