Sep 1, 2013Bought on sale for $17.99 in the alpha stages. I understand exactly what buying in the alpha means, and I wasn't expecting a polished or even completed game of any sort. That being said, what I did not expect was not being able to play the game at all, as prisoners spend 24/7 trying to escape from the moment they entered (yes there was a double-fence around the entire compound with no cracks), or standing in their cells unresponsive to any schedule I set or orders I placed. Staff would stand there doing nothing, janitors wouldn't sweep no matter what I tried.
I'm fine with bugs, and helping the devs find those bugs, but I was kinda hoping the game was playable for that price.
Positives are it looks great, handles pretty nicely, and is very intuitive right up until it stops working.… Expand
