I bought myself a copy of Prison Architect in the Steam summer sale.

Prison Architect

I think I paid £13 instead of £19, or something like that. It still seemed like a lot for game that’s early in alpha, but the reviews seemed very positive.

Thankfully it’s proved to be a great game. Admittedly I think I’ve effectively managed to beat it with only my second stab at a prison (pictured). It’s not an impressive building or anything, but I’ve had no shankings at all, no use has been made of my solitary cells and I’m earning enough money every day to extend things further.

Like with Minecraft while it was in alpha, the game is mostly potential. It’s actually a lot of fun to play a game in development – each update brings you back to the game to play the new features. Minecraft is still doing that.

I also snapped up the starship strategy game FTL, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, arty explore-em-up Proteus and wilderness fantasy survival game 2 Don’t Starve, but I haven’t had a chance to play them yet.
