Prison Architect update 13 adds a new 'Warden Mode'

Posted by , | Views: 12,573

Prison Architect [GOGSteam, Official Site] is still being updated and this one is quite a big one adding a new Warden Mode where you play as a Warden while you build.

Note: If you own the game on Steam, you need to opt-in to the Beta branch to be able to play Update 13. You can find the update video below:

Actually being in your own prison, adds a whole new and interesting way to play the game. You have to keep an eye out, since prisoners could end up taking you down. You can't just attack anyone you like of course, since this is a legal establishment. However, if attacked yourself you're able to defend yourself with various armaments. You can even recruit your very own guard squad, they aren't cheap though.

There's even a Permadeath option, for those who really like a challenge. Find the full release notes here. Really do love this game, fantastic to see that Introversion continue to update it so long after release!

You can grab it on GOGSteam or directly from the Official Site.

Their needlessly foul language made it so I couldn't finish the video, Their past videos were not like this. It's a bit of a let down as I like these guys and their game.

Yea that seems to be an increasing trend everywhere now. Like an internet tourette syndrome. It's so prevalent now we should coin a new word for it, im going with Netourettes.

@madpinger @meggerman Oh please, he said the f**k word like 3 times and bulls**t once for 37 minutes (That's the only thing I could consider foul language). This is why I hate Political Correctness, everybody has become so fragile they start crying the moment they hear a bad word, you can't even make jokes anymore. What happened to "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."

BOYSSSSSWhat happened to "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."

Probably because it's rubbish. Words can hurt MORE than "sticks and stones".

Also, they have a point. I don't know when it became acceptable for a -business- to use foul language in what's for all practical purposes a -business communication-. One can really see how the Internet and the (illusion of) anonymity there has contributed to the erosion of basic manners, to a degree that even businesses are using it now for professional communication. But hey, what do you expect from a medium where it's apparently acceptable to haul insults and f-bombs at people you're playing a game with.

I wasn't referring to the video in question. Merely voicing the sentiment that this is a thing across the board online and it has increased a lot in recent years, if you just wanted to watch someone who doesn't use expletives every 15 seconds it getting quite hard. The words don't bother me, im just noticing the trend.

I'm not offended by some creative profanity when it's called for, but I have to agree that the amount of f-bombs I hear every day simply smells of what could be called edgelord culture. This is just one manifestation of a bigger problem to me, mainly affecting media but bleeding into everything else. Sometimes it feels like the emotional age of our global society has plummeted by at least a couple of decades in the time we've aged as much. Subtlety and wit are now signs of weakness.


Another get-off-my-lawn rant... I really am getting old.

Now we know... we have to blame Liam...

Between you and Introversion (UK devs of Prison Architect), I now know how the Queens "proper English" got perverted into profanity laden tirades.

Here on the other side of the pond, we are all family friendly ;)
