Very good, you know what I like most? The system you have used to model the fire hose looks so cool!

For the Devs : Time between release updates

This is to go along with the sister thread "how long in alpha" The reason I ask how long before updates is I want to get a feel for the process, will it be a few days with incremental s or weeks / months between updates? Not a question to pressure you, just an interest on how much time to ...

Part of the reward of being in an alpha is that developers tend to genuinely reflect on what feedback testers give, this allows in a very small way for you to have some influence in the game creation, I find that to be worth it.

Tranchera, although I agree with what you are saying I just want to comment that being adverse to seeing a mans penis does not make you homophobic, it makes you a prude. Homophobic means literally "to be irrationally fearful (phobic) to homosexuality (homo)"

Carry on.

People are focusing on the term "bug" when they should be using the term "fun" or "game play" when dealing with alpha stage, so let me re ask the question: Does having to use smaller pipes when traversing under already set wall structure make the game more fun or enhanc...

Going further... I think this could be used to generate an interesting mid game design, kind of 20 hours + for a prison. Perhaps as the state invests more into you, the prison becomes more pressured to take on these "boss" prisoners who radiate gang culture attractiveness. This would lead ...

Putting more flesh around this. You could have counter gang culture processes such as: Priests holding mass. Workshop programs. Sports programs. Anti gang literature , book reading. Awareness posters. Guest visitors speaking of the dangers of gang culture. These events would increase "resistanc...

(Suggestion) Emergent game play Gang system.

One thing I think this game is screaming out for is a gangs system. Essentially you could have gang leaders who "radiate" gang attraction and if a prisoner is exposed to them for too much time it would based on resistance factors eventually "corrupt" them to a gang status. This w...

The juxtapose position inferred by the graphic overlays are absolutely spot on PLEASE don't change anything. Also, the theme of this story is very similar to Shawshank Redemption widely regarded as one of the best prison films ever made. Can I ask anyone who is offended by the graphic design what th...

+1 for ability to assign prisoners to cleaning duty. To offset the bonus I would recommend an increasing in ability to create contraband, specifically weapons from access to material to shiv i.e brooms and brushes etc.

For me I don't see any point in providing any more feedback until the showstopper bugs are fixed which are for me 1: You can leave prisoners outside the prison for infinity, I cant even gauge any pressure from the game on that basis. 2: You cant expand a building in any sensible way, it just gets le...
