“The Clink” Update Highlights:

  • Updates to existing in-game object sprites to support all placement orientations.

  • New Tunnel Search functionality that allows guards to search toilets for hidden escape tunnels.

  • Four new floor tiles and four new wall types added to further customize your prison.

Paradox Interactive acquired all rights and assets for Prison Architect, a BAFTA award-winning prison management simulator, from Introversion Software in January 2019. In Prison Architect, players are tasked with the construction and maintenance of a maximum security prison, from laying out cell blocks and inmate facilities to managing staff pay and prisoner morale. Prison designs include basic necessities like cells, canteens, guard rooms, and infrastructure, but players can also include features like solitary confinement, workout areas, and more.
