I believe that there definitely will be a campaign, they probably finished it years ago (Mark ssupposedly made a plot spoiler in one of the earliest Alpha videos, I think it was A5).
As for Multiplayer and multi-story prisons, seriously, did you read the forums at all? Both have been requested without end and both have clearly been rejected by the devs.

As for me, I'm pretty happy with the game as is when it comes to features, but I didn't actually play PA for several months, because I'm unable to build the prison I want because of lag. I AM already saving up for a new PC, but if any more optimization of the code is possible, I would be very grateful for that.
No, I'm not talking about multi-core support because I know that the game already does that, I've been following the Alpha videos thoroughly ;)

I never saw the forums for the Multiplayer and Multi story. The trailer has clips of the events and some campaign story.

I hope that prisoners do organized escape plans, as a gang plan to escape from prison and then at a certain schedule they attack the security room to open the doors for others come out running like crazy (or just hang out breaking all the same)

Just about anything that you might want to do can easily be done with a text editor. Further cheats seem unnecessary.

I'm asking for a few things:

Instant build (foundations and furniture are placed instantly)
Micromanagement of guards (an armed guard by the entrance should always be in freefire)
More creative events
Stiffer penalties for the deaths of staff and visitors
Death Row nerf (people usually stay in death row for decades, and it should cost a lot more money to house the inmates)

2 big things I want from escape mode is
a) some kind of incentive to follow the regime laid out by the prison, like you are punished if found outside of the canteen during eat time or something
b) the need to keep an eye on your prisoner needs. id like to see some kind of negative effect on your prisoner if you are neglecting your needs

there is so much potential with this game mode, with all the detailed mechanics already in prison architect this mode could very well become an escapists killer. also prisoner relations I want to be more than going up to someone and getting them to follow you, you should have to build up some kind of a friendship with them first before theyre willing to follow you into some ballsy escape attempt as seen in the v1 video. could also be useful to befriend gang members for their protection

Agreed. In addition to that:

-Instant build would probably take out alot of unnecessary codes. If you look around in save files, notice that jobs completed by workers (construction and furniture placement ofcourse) remains the majority of the file. In addition to that, alot of time would be saved. Even though this may take out alot of what the worker actually does, it does not defeat the purpose of having them around. Construction beside, they can still work in exports and forestry. I believe the whole construction thing is a cool feature, however you get tired really, really quickly after needing to wait for jobs to be completed and such. That aside, it would probably eliminate alot of bugs in regards to AI pathfinders. Pipe is in the middle of walls? no problem. Worker just won't install that door no matter how many times you restart? Problem solved. I agree to this idea, and with that highly support this idea to be implemented.

-Stiffer penalties for deaths of staffs and visitors: how about adding prison time? Try laying hands on the guards now.

-Optimization of codes. You see it doesnt matter how strong your computer is, IT WILL LAG WITH LARGE PRISONS. Dont want this simple thing to be such a limitation now would you?

-In another post i mentioned (Gang Suggestions) the idea of gang membership and gang creation in the escape mode. How about spending reputation points in creating a gang? Then steamroll your way out the front gates.

-Smarter AI: I see this still, even at the end of the alpha. AI just acts dumb sometimes. Want porn from a shop? sure, walk across the map when there's literally a shop in close proximity.
- In addition to that, gang behavior. I see this still, and it bothers me so much. Gang members of different affiliations, have no problem fine dining next to each other. That just doesnt happen! Please make gang behavior
more realistic.

- Bug: not sure if this is fixed yet, but my inmates sleep in/on their toilets. Don't think that is what prisoners usually do, or if the toilet is more comfortable than the bed, which is sad.

That said, the instant building would make things too easy. Prisoner escaping? Wall 'im in! Riot breaking out? Walls! It's like the guard hiring. I find it useful in saving Protected inmates, but it also feels too easy.
