Prison Architect is the world's first Prison Management Sim

Postby Khrull » Wed Mar 27, 2013 5:05 pm

In the steam discussions more and more threads get created claiming this sentence on the store page to be false because of prison tycoon. I think you should just remove it from the store to get rid of this problem as people are quick to come to the conclusion that of course, you're intentionally lying (as if that sentence made any difference towards sales :roll:).

Let people complain, from what I know this is the first prison sim as the others are labelled Tycoon. People will find anything to complain about just so they can feel big and important and come across as a beacon of knowledge.

What he said ^ And besides, as far as I know Prison Tycoon is at least 5 years old or something like that. It would be different if the brand was still alive.
Also, I never bought it as it had bad reviews and everything I saw from it, wasn't appealing. PA caught my attention from the graphics done in a kind of comic strip style and the game mechanics (although there are alpha problems) are pretty good.

I totally agree with you all, I just think it makes more sense to remove this statement, as it is false, just to remove all the chatter about it as well.

It was quite horrible yea, I would even say that Prison Architect alpha 8 is now better prison game than Tycoon never was.

On the one hand, you only know about Prison Tycoon if:
(a) You remember being disappointed in it.
(b) You decided to fact check that "World's first" statement.
(c) Someone else did (a) or (b) for you.

On the other, it did come out first.

People over at Steam also need to be taught the concept of ALPHA. The amount of threads moaning about the price and asking for a demo does your head in. I've given up replying to them.

The other way to know is, when you have found Prison Architect by typing in "prison" in the steam search field, which will also return prison tycoon 3 and prisoon tycoon 4 :D

As these Prison tycoon versions are also sold on Steam, it does make sense to change the statement.
