Prison Architect Early Access Alpha Preview

I'm playing the early access alpha of Prison Architect, a jail management simulation by Introversion Software.

The game allows you to place a wide variety of different buildings to run your prison (administrative offices, power generators, storage) or attend to the needs of your inmates (cell, kitchen, yard, shower, infirmary, laundry, visitation, workshop). Your staff consists of the warden, who researches new technologies, and support personnel that provide security, cook meals, clean, and provide medical care. Detailed reports are available covering your staff, prisoners, jobs, needs, the daily schedule, grants, finances, and contraband, providing important information as you attempt to neutralize violent inmates and catch potential escapees.
