Description official description

Experience simulated prison life in a pixel art environment. Work one of several prison jobs to earn money. For extra money, take on tasks from your fellow inmates, including stealing items, laying down beatings, or causing distractions. Use your money to buy tools and crafting ingredients from your cohorts and strategize a plan to gain your freedom. After escaping from the slew of standard prisons, download custom prisons from the Steam Workshop or design your own to share with the community.
