Become a "Very Important Prisoner" to enjoy the hit prison sim at its best with no ads and full access to the editor! Create your own inmate and attempt to survive in a prison where every sentence is a "death" sentence. Rub shoulders with up to 100 fellow inmates in a sprawling facility of 12 unique areas, each filled with fully interactive furniture and props. Plus a life beyond the gates populated by real civilians, with wardens enforcing dozens of different laws to keep you as far away from it as possible.

Each day, you will find your health and mental state slipping away. Both can be restored by sleeping – which is also a good way to pass time. You won’t always be permitted to sleep, though, so consuming food and drink bridges the gap. These, along with many other activities such as reading or watching TV, can also help to improve your mental state. If you "lose your mind" you will temporarily lose control of your character – and will almost certainly get into trouble!

Your character also has a set of attributes that you are challenged to improve:

  • STRENGTH indicates how much damage you can inflict or absorb. You can improve it by fighting or lifting weights.
  • AGILITY determines how fast you move. You can improve it by jogging in the yard or scoring baskets.
  • INTELLECT reflects your knowledge – including fighting skills such as counters. You can improve it by reading books.
  • REPUTATION is how much other prisoners respect you. It can be improved by accomplishing tasks or intimidating others.

There are also opportunities to earn money – whether you work for it with a broom, trade items at a profit, or run with a gang. Having money increases your opportunities to grease the wheels and make your life inside easier.

You may find that you need to go to the toilet from time to time, in which case you must race to the bathroom! Alternatively, you could find a toilet to sit on or grab some toilet paper to spare your blushes. Failing to do so will damage your reputation and mental state.

I regret that there is more to this game than I could ever explain here, so I hope you enjoy figuring some things out for yourself!

  • If you find your device struggles to display lots of characters, considering keeping the "Population" option low.
