  • Build From Your Own Blueprints: Design every room, path, checkpoint, and cell block

  • Hire Experts: Evaluate and hire staff to serve 12 different roles in running and maintaining your prison

  • Secure and Protect: Maintain a secure facility using guards, cameras, watchtowers, and checkpoints

  • Rehabilitate and Release: Evaluate prisoners, then provide the therapies that they need to be released, from the zero gravity room to VR therapy
