It sounds like you want to play a football manager game with infinitely more corruption. I'm not sure why you expect Chris to not only embrace corruption to borderline cartoonish levels but to also have prisoner sporting teams become such a big deal.

Sports are a part of every prison and it would make introversion a lot of £'s..

The beauty about the sports sim is games could be run even when the other player isn't available. Cloud saved always on prisons would be interesting.

You realize games can be run in text mode?

Graphics don't generally have anything to do with the game logic (unless shittily implemented). How is that relevant?

I'm afraid your suggestion for a ROMZOMCOMMMOFPS just won't work. There's not enough owls in the teraflops.

I think Jordy left because of this suggestion of yours to put DEFCON on the VirtualBoy.

And you're still trying to put a whole other, basically tangential game into Prison Architect.

You're making the rather large assumption that adding sports to the game will make the game more appealing, not less.

The idea of including sports stuff in a prison sim seems a bit odd. I want my prison game to be a prison game. If I wanted it to be a sports game I'd buy Fifa.

Sports are a part of every prison and it would make introversion a lot of £'s..


And we all know that the only thing IV want is to make money, not making good games...
A prison trading prisonners is not really a good idea... That would only be intersting if you were able to train prisonners, make them compete, get ranked, etc. And that would not be PA anymore, it would be "Football manager with a prison recruitement side"...

Its like if they made an extension to build animals cages or roller coaster, because, you know, why would'nt you pay to have a zoo or a theme park in your prison?
The game needs to focus on its main theme : the prison.

And I don't think in its current form, PA is even close to have a multiplayer interesting side.

You could 'train' them and that's part of the interesting aspect of strategy. Let them go practice in the yard and hope all goes well.

Sports already in prison architect: Pool,Boxing,Weightlifting,Cart sledding
