Here’s some good news for Prison Tycoon fans. The new game Prison Tycoon: Under New Management is now available on PC through Steam and GOG. This latest version is actually a reboot of the franchise.

Like the other games in the genre, the goal is to build a prison, hire the best staff possible, and make sure to turn this rehabilitation facility into a profitable business. Everything is possible so there’s actually no need to punish prisoners. Instead, come up with personalized therapies like dance therapy, VR treatment, or even a zero-gravity room.

Here are some of the features of the game:

  • Choose a Prison Location
    • Select from one of five biomes for the prison, like Tropical, Tundra, Taiga, Swamp, or Desert.
    • Each one offers unique challenges and environmental factors.
  • Build a Huge Prison
    • Craft every building, every room, and every path.
    • Furnish them to your liking.
    • Make efficient use of both water systems and the power grid.
  • Hire the Best Staff
    • Hire expert staff to fill all kinds of roles in the prison.
    • Assign them to work to promote the best and fire the rest.
  • Manage the Economy
    • Manage the economy of the prison.
    • Apply loans to get resources to expand the facilities.
    • Use penitentiary policies to save money.
    • Buy and manage resources to make sure that staff and inmates are well supplied.
  • Control the Security
    • Maintain the security systems to prevent night escapes.
    • Decide on the placement of cameras, watchtowers, and guards.
  • Take Care of the Prisoners
    • Make sure that everyone is not only happy but also healthy.
    • Look over prisoners and check if they are getting proper nutrition and exercise.
  • Keep Up the Installations
    • Maintain the facilities and make the necessary repairs when they wear down.
    • The employees can help take care of repairs, cleaning, and gardening, but they’ll need guidance.


When players buy the game, they also get access to the first DLC for free. Roll Call is all about having everyone’s imagination run wild. This one is good for those who play games in front of others, like being on Twitch.
