Prison Architect is easily one of the best games available on Linux, and it's great to see it get big updates after release.

This latest update is quite the whopper, and allows you to build a women's prison. This comes with its own set of problems to overcome, like what to do with their baby.

I think they are pretty brave for putting this in, as I'm sure it's quite the hot topic to some people. I try to stay away from discussions on it, since I value women in the same way that I value men, and I think this is the kind of update that does it justice. I don't see any form of sexism here, just a cool update. I hope others see it this way too.

They have also continued working on the Modding API.

About the game
Build and manage a Maximum Security Prison. As the sun casts it’s early morning rays on a beautiful patch of countryside the clock starts ticking. You’ve got to crack on and build a holding cell to detain the job­ lot of maximum security prisoners that are trundling to your future prison on their yellow bus. As your workmen lay the last brick you don’t have a moment to let them rest as they need to get started on the first proper cell block so you can make room for the next prisoner intake. Once they’ve all got a place to lay their weary heads the fun can really start.

Can you imagine the riots if babies were taken away from Mothers who give birth in Prison?

The only reason I haven't gotten this is a) the prison industrial complex in the U.S. is disgusting and most everyone in jail should not be. Maximum security jail? Perhaps a larger percentage should be there, I'm no expert, but even then the justice system over here is corrupt and very unjust in many cases so the whole concept turns me off it. I myself even have a loved one in jail who was a victim of this injustice who very much should not be there. And then b) add in the violence to a situation which is already very far from black and white, and the whole situation becomes even more sad, so that turns me off it even more.
