Prison Architect (Alpha)



Maybe it's America's hardon for prisons that inspired this simulator, but has anyone tried it? The game was showcased during Steam's Summer Sale and now it's offered as part of The Weekly Humble Bundle for $19.99 access. I'm not really sold on the alpha as is, but it looks interesting so I was wondering if anyone has anything to say about their experiences playing it.

Also, the trailer was amusing. Literally amusing.

Looks like it could be entertaining, but I don't see myself really wanting to play it.

To me it seems like a Tycoon wannabe, but not quite as fun at the same time.

Not wanting to play it because of the alpha status or the subject matter?

The subject matter is what interests me. I have tested games from pre-alpha through go live before, so the alpha status doesn't bother me.

Its just not the style of play that I am currently playing, and I feel it doesn't seem to match the idea in a way. It's kind of hard to really explain.
