A couple of months ago we announced that we are going to finish Prison Architect in 2015. We've been working hard to fulfil that promise and as a result of April's bug bash we're happy to pin that down further and confirm that Prison Architect will be released in quarter four (Oct / Nov / Dec) 2015!

The team have smashed the previous bug fix record and submitted over 130 fixes and whilst that means that we don't have a content update for you this month, we hope you appreciate the stability, speed and simulation quality of the new build. Normal service will resume next month and please continue to log any issues that you may discover.

Release date of Alpha 32: Apr 30th, 2015

Death Row continuedEdit

Main article: Execution

  • A new item in the TODO list shows you the current status of your Death Row prisoners (chance of clemency)
  • New game over event: Criminal Miscarriage of Justice. Occurs if you execute an inmate who is later exonerated of the crime (will not happen if you have reduced his chance of clemency below the legal threshold)

Legal defenseEdit

Main article: Lawyer

  • The lawyer can now provide a last line of legal defense
​If you are on warning (Eg too many deaths in one day), and you fear you will not be able to meet the requirements to avoid being fired, you can use your Lawyer to avert the Game Over event. Can only be used once.
