Cell-ibrating Prison Architect’s Finest Jails

*Gavel thumps* "Silence! Bring the prisoner forward. Craig 'Thomas' Pearson, you have been found guilty of being a rubbish Prison Architect. A most serious offense that resulted in a record number of convicted felons escape your shoddily designed hole. As punishment, you are to spend the morning looking at the Steam Workshop, finding lovely prisons that you can compare your weedy efforts to. Then we'll…

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion On PC Gaming’s Future

All good things must come to an end. Weekends, guitar solos, and - yes - even seemingly unending conversations with a panel of thoughtful game developers. It is nature's way. And so we reach the third and final part of my chat with Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, Dreamfall’s Ragnar Tornquist, Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail, Introversion’s Chris Delay, and Redshirt’s Mitu Khandaker. This time we discuss clones, competition, diversity,…

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion On Kickstarter, Greenlight

The megachat continues! At the behest of many, I'm carving it into the Internet's unforgetting crystalline walls - one hefty chunk at a time - because mere ears could not withstand its relentless auditory onslaught. Last time, I gathered Obsidian's Chris Avellone, Dreamfall's Ragnar Tornquist, Vlambeer's Rami Ismail, Introversion's Chris Delay, and Redshirt's Mitu Khandaker to discuss what exactly makes each of them "indie" despite their exceedingly different…

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion Talk Meaning Of ‘Indie’

Let's try this again. Earlier this week, I posted the audio from a spur-the-moment indie megachat I put together during Rezzed, but its audio quality ended up a casualty of the fact that everyone at Rezzed never stops screaming. Never. The agony of existence. It is terrifying. So as a (probably much better) alternative, I'll be posting a transcription over the next few days. If…

Feature: What Is Indie?

Avellone, Vlambeer, Tornquist, More In INDIE MEGACHAT

Update: embedding fixed, and download links provided! Rezzed was a time of magic and wonder. Indie developers of all shapes and sizes mingled with fans and each other alike, and it was nearly enough to make us all forget that we were trapped in Birmingham. Honestly though, it was a pretty strange scene. I mean, on one hand, there were devs like Vlambeer and Introversion…

Impressions: Prison Architect

Prison Architect is a management game from Introversion, makers of Uplink and Darwinia. They're currently running a pre-order system in which you get access to ongoing alpha builds. I've been playing virtual, invisible warden in the most recent one, which though lacking several features and an ultimate objective offers a good flavour of this game of construction and containment.Why? Why do they hate me so?…

Saw Scant Redemption: Prison Architect’s Fixed Fog

Pretty much the type of comment I hate most here is "shame on you RPS for not posting about game/event x". No, shame on you for being a plonker. But this time and this time only you are allowed to say "shame on you" to me. Why? Because I still haven't played Introversion's Prison Architect, even though I have a copy of the alpha.Shame on…

Prison Architect Breaks Out It’s Third Alpha Update

Prison Architect really seems to be turning around Introversion's fortunes. With more than $400,000 made since the release of the alpha, their out-turned pocket linings might be facing inward once again. And now the alpha has reached its third stage, adding in fog of war, and a new CCTV system. There's a video to prove it.

Prison Architect Is The Daddy Now

Introversion's management sim/financial experiment Prison Architect has done reasonably well for itself off the back of an alpha version alone, managing 10,000 sales and not too far south of $400,000 as a result. Those are small beer numbers for a full release game, but we're talking about a far-from-finished alpha only available direct from the developer. In that context, it is BIG BEER.

Introversion Unveil Prison Architect’s Alpha Launch

Prison Architect is coming along nicely, as I've reported previously. Now though, the Introversions - Chris Delay and Mark Morris - want players to help push the design process along, as well as some pre-order money to keep themselves in bread and water. With that in mind, there's now a tiered pre-order option open, and you can get involved for a price. We talked to…

Introversion’s Rezzed Session: Explanations, Demos

Introversion used their developer session at Rezzed to explain why they had canned Subversion, and how the technology and ideas from that had become Prison Architect, which was playable at the show. It's certainly worth a look, and you can watch the session - which includes some footage of Subversion - below. Relatedly, you can also read my take Prison Architect here and here.

Intelligent Demise: The End Of Darwinia

They say you should always be prepared to kill your darlings. Darwinia creators Introversion have taken it one step forward, creating nothing short of a Darwinian snuff movie to mark their transition from little computer people to... prison architects. Yeah, that's still a little weird. But never mind. Help them celebrate this glorious new age of Not Darwinia by enjoying 2:36 minutes of burning, shooting…

Break Into Prison Architect Later This Year

Introversion’s Prison Architect is the mysterious tumour that ate away at Subversion. Wait, that’s a horrible thing to say! Let me get my Men In Black Mind Eraser thing and we’ll pretend I never said - *flash* [Editor's Note - at this point Craig accidentally flashed his own memories. He doesn't know who he is, so we've told him he's Oor Wullie]. Crivens! Thuy sais…

Guvnor’: Hands On With Prison Architect

The cancellation of Introversion's Subversion has at least borne some fruit. Our interview with lead programmer Chris Delay explain that a prison breakout level in Subversion, combined with a visit to Alcatraz, gave rise to an idea for a prison management game, Prison Architect. I've been playing some of the IGF build of that game - so far from release, but totally playable - and…

Introversion Drop “Treasure Hunt” Clue

Hmm! Introversion are up to something. They've sent us a mysterious image, which you can see below. They tell us it is part of some kind of treasure hunt thing. PCG have the first image. The email from Introversion reads: "The clues are all from Introversion’s next game Prison Architect, and showcase Ryan Sumo’s amazing art. Some of the clues are buried in the Humble…

Humbwinia: The Humble Introversion Bundle

The next instalment of boundlessly popular indie pay-what-you-will project, The Humble Indie Bundle, has announced its new bundle, which is dominated by the Introversions, and even contains some prototype things from them, like Subversion's city generator. Yes, I thought that might interest you. The other games are: Aquaria, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Uplink, Defcon, Darwinia, and Multiwinia.Trailer thing below!
