What is to come in the future?

Postby Apemanx » Sat Aug 17, 2013 3:47 pm

HI, all

Do any of you know where I can find info of what is planned for Prison Architect in the future? I would very much like to know? Or if someone can point me in the right direction? Meaning what the developers are planning, features, campaigns missions etc? That is, when the game officially launches...

Thanks! :D

Some really good sources are videos on YouTube of events like EuroGamer. There should be some threads in the news sections about them.

There are no sources that im aware off, maybe another user knows something i dont but, as far as ima ware its all hush hush but would be nice to know something.

Dogs seems to be a certainty in the future, possibly gangs and other things but like i said no one really knows.

Alpha: In this stage you have a working script, but it probably still has lots of bugs that need to be worked out. You might not have all your features yet, but the core of the program is running and can be tested extensively.

Beta: In this stage the program is near completion. All of the features are working and the software is often opened up to the public to test. There may still be some bugs that need to be worked out that may not have shown up in alpha testing.

Maybe that is what you would like, but it's not how software development works ;)

If you want to play a version of Prison Architect where most things have been fixed, you need to wait until near the end of Beta phase, because Alpha is for adding features and Beta is for fixing bugs and optimizing the code.

Actually, it would be a bit of a waste to spend time fixing things just to have them break again after adding more features that might conflict again during another alpha version. It seems counterproductive to keep things broken, but it's not really. We just need to be patient. :wink:

Quite sensible. Been playing this alpha game since few weeks and like it very much. Really looking forward new features and eventually the beta and the bug fixing. This game seems quite promising.
