That makes the death penalty seem extremely likely. Hopefully it will be implemented in a smart way, not a 'smite' button for bloodthirsty players. In other words you can only execute prisoners who are death row prisoners. Ideally it will also include a concept of innocence...

That way if you execute innocent prisoners you lose money and may lose the game. If you clear a prisoner on death row (man hours put in by your lawyers) then you can set them free for a big 'parole' style bonus. Lawyers can work on any prisoner who you may suspect of being innocent. Maybe there will also be a checkbox at the start to determine if your prison is in a place with a death penalty or not.

Another dark thing they could add is disease, injury and death by old age. Now you have to frequently screen and treat prisoners who can develop lifelong problems in your prison or die in custody. This could range from a bad infestation of bedbugs all the way up to tuberculosis.


As far as other stuff goes I do hope they will continue with the cosmetic upgrades (like the bus and workout animations) since those things add a ton of polish and professionalism to the game.

-Removal of auto-lighting (or making it optional) when building foundations?

-Power bill (don't pay = no juice = no lights)?

-Darker nights?

-Better shadows?

-Corrupted staff?

-Last Alpha before Beta 01?

-Alpha released regionally at local night time & can only be played between local sunset and sunrise?

Now we go darker (each of these could be prisoner on prisoner, staff on prisoner, and/or prisoner on staff):


-Sexual abuse/assault/rape?

-Frame jobs and setups?

-Intentional neglect/abuse by staff on certain prisoners?

Little darker:

--Obviously the standard ride in Ol' Sparky would occur
--Prisoners or staff sneak in a use on Ol' Sparky late at night to solve some problems
--Stay of execution arrives too late
--Execution by firing squad, stoning, hanging, lethal injection, beheading, etc. options (not all but some, for sure)

--Obviously the standard "Goodbye cruel world!"
--Prisoners or staff bullying cause suicide
--Cult/group suicide
--Prisoner or staff caused prisoner "suicide"
--Staff committed suicide using any of the above
