We can’t imagine that Prison Simulator is very exciting. Getting stripped of clothes, thrown in a cold cell, left with little food or drink, always on the lookout for others. Being a crim is no fun. Thankfully Prison Simulator works the other side of the coin, putting you in the role of a prison officer, looking to keep your customers happy.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Prison Simulator from PlayWay and Baked Games is the latest to have us playing through the life of a prison warden. Think of this like Prison Architect, but without the hassle of needing to build buildings and you’ll be absolutely nowhere near.
It’s priced at £16.74 and will task you with keeping law and order within your jail cells. At least, it will be unless you decide to go rogue, corrupted by the cash, letting things slide. Hell, you can even help with a bit of contraband smuggling and take in a fight or two should you so wish.
Of course, we’d be working the good side of the law, ensuring that our prison is one that is kept clean, safe and as abiding as possible. We’re not saying it’ll always go that way, but best intentions and all that…
Arriving in the build-up to Christmas with various other simulators – Goat Simulator 3 being the main one, but Animal Shelter Simulator is worth a look and Ship Graveyard Simulator is fast incoming – there’s much to try and enjoy in Prison Simulator, with the key features sitting as…

Prison Simulator is a first-person simulation game in which you play the role of a prison service officer a month before your desired promotion. You have to perform increasingly complex tasks in prison, balancing the administration’s assessment and inmates’ satisfaction. In the game, you play the role of a prison guard and it is only up to you whether you decide to obey the law or let this place and people corrupt you completely. After all, who said you had to be an exemplary ranger? Maybe you prefer to trade with prisoners, help them smuggle, and bet on the outcome of fights in prison instead? After all, everyone likes to have fun sometimes. Especially in a sad place like this, where you are also the boss. Or at least you think so. So how? Will you choose to follow the rules, intercept contraband, count prisoners, send them to work, take care of their basic needs and keep prison gangs under control? Will you go to the dark side? Whatever you decide, remember that your actions will affect both the facility itself and the inmates, and above all, the further course of your career.
