Prison Architect Questions

Postby Der_Doodle » Sat Sep 28, 2013 12:20 pm

Hi,
I have a question I got the Prison Architect game via Steam and I really really enjoy it.
But I have a few questions now.

First one is about Mods (the Global Finacial Crysis thingy for example) Do Mods run generaly with the steam version?
If not can I install in addition to the steam version the "non Steam" Version aswell on my PC?

And then one final question for the moment. Can I legally Install a copy of this game on my notebook aswell as my PC or do I have to buy the game a 2nd time? Since the game does not need an internet connection and I am taking my notebook with me on holidays I would really enjoy being able to play the game without having to carry my PC into the holidays.

Hmm ok I lied about that being the final question just got another one. Is it planned or is it maybe already working to run the game on a Linux Based Computer?

Greetings

As long as you're not installing it on other people's computers so they don't have to buy it I don't think Introversion has a problem with installing the game on multiple computers.

There's already a standalone Linux version and it looks like a Linux version on Steam too (the Steam page lists Linux requirements).

You simply run Steam on any other computer, log in to your account, download and install Prison Architect and start playing. There is no DRM that prevents you from installing it on different machines.

For now there is no real difference between the Steam version and a Downloadable version, mods can therefor be installed.

Purchasing the game using Steam links it to your account, if you use your own account to log in your can install on multiple Computers, you just can't be logged in on multiple Computers at the same time.

A Linux version was released in Alpha 9 or 10 (Not sure, you could look it up if it means that much to you)
