Ziggurat Interactive has just revealed that Prison Tycoon: Under New Management is coming to consoles on February 7th! PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo players will be able to play this cool Tycoon game in just a month away. This new entry entirely reboots the series with a new take on designing, constructing, and running a correctional facility.

With a shift in primarily concentrating on rehabilitation over punishment, players will have to find that balance between services and safety as they build their prisons. Managing resources as well as keeping both staff and prisoners happy will be the main emphasis of this building/management sim. Whether you are making a new cell block or integrating a VR therapy room, players must make their structures a supportive and effective rehabilitative experience.

Key Features:

  • Rehabilitate and Release: Evaluate prisoners, then provide the therapies that will help rehabilitate them, from zero gravity rooms to VR therapy

  • Five Distinct Environments: Select from tropical, tundra, taiga (boreal forest), swamp, or desert biomes, each with its own environmental challenges

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

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

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

This seems to be a massive shift in tone as well as gameplay with this new game in the series. Typically Prison Tycoon would focus on the punishments of prisoners as opposed to trying to make them comfortable through rehabilitation sessions. It seems like some of the rehab options can be rather comical such as pole dancing and a VR therapy room.

Prison Tycoon: Under New Management is available now on PC via Steam and GOG. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on February 7, 2023.
