Panoptikon 2.0

Do you have an unquenchable need for penal simulation? Prison Tycoon is for you! And I wish I was making this up but I’m not!

Brick by Brick…
Start from the ground up placing the very walls and fences that will house and contain your prisoners. Choose from multiple isolated environments and get to work.

Pay the Cost to be the Boss…
Begin with a low security prison and build it up to a maximum security facility for the world’s most dangerous criminals.

What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate…
Expertly staff your prison with wardens, guards, cooks and rehabilitation experts. Carefully balance your budget, maintain prisoner morale and minimize the potential for financial meltdown.

Iron Hand or Velvet Fist…
Determine the overall security level of your lockdown, but beware! Too harsh a prison will create a dangerous environment and could spark prisoner riots. Too lenient an approach will result in rampant gang activity.

I hear the Department of Defense is putting out its own sim of Gulag Tycoon.

    Come to think of it, why hasn’t anyone done SimSSR?
