Let’s Play Prison Architect Season 2 – Episode 42: Our past catches up with us as Gordon’s wife shows up in the prison to terrorize us. Thankfully, even though she’s Extremely Volatile, she’s not extremely deadly – so hopefully she doesn’t kill guards like her husband.

For those of you who actually read descriptions and are wondering, the Blue leader came into the prison during my build, and I noticed she was in the yard. I started my recording, but not before changing the last name of that leader to Gordon, for effect/plot. So yes, the last name was changed, but other than the last name, everything else about her came in naturally. So if you’re seeing people going “FAKE!” in the comments or something, it’s totally disclosed right here in the description for them 🙂

Prison Architect is a game where you plan and design a prison from scratch, and then manage it and all the potential problems that go with it. From proper segregation to maintaining happiness within the population to prevent riots and improve rehabilitation, players in Prison Architect are tested on their abilities to solve problems before they get out of hand, while also managing a budget and growing their business.

The concept of building and managing a prison is a dark one, but Introversion Software, the creators of Prison Architect, have done an awesome job at bringing this conceptually difficult game into a lighthearted and fun environment, with fun graphics to go with it.
