Prison Tycoon: Under New Management

Publisher Ziggurat Interactive, along with developer Abylight Studios, announced today that Prison Tycoon: Under New Management is about to make its debut on Switch. It previously released on PC, but is now making the jump to consoles.

The game has players building and managing a correctional facility with the goal of providing rehabilitation for their charges to help them reintegrate into society. Roll Call DLC, Maximum Security DLC, and Sandbox mode will be bundled in for the Switch edition.

Here’s a full overview of Prison Tycoon: Under New Management:

Prison Tycoon: Under New Management reboots the series with a different take on what it means to create and maintain a successful correctional facility. With a focus on rehabilitation over punishment, players must maintain a balance of services and security as they strive to run and grow their facility. They will need to secure funding from state agencies, manage the flow of resources, and keep both staff and prisoners happy all while providing proper care for their charges. Whether constructing a new cell block or integrating a VR therapy room, players must maximize their investments to build and operate their facility successfully.

Key Features

Rehabilitate and Release: Evaluate prisoners, then provide the therapies that will help rehabilitate them, from the zero gravity room 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
