Calamities can strike at any time, decreasing happiness and increasing unrest among inmates. Wardens can train staff, apply for grants, and fortify their compound to control the impact of a calamity on their prison. Players are encouraged to create a clean and safe environment for their inmates through disaster preparedness, rewarding guards who keep their inmates comfortable. Guardians must be creative in solving problems, preventing disasters and overcoming unexpected challenges.

“Perfect Storm’s Calamities challenge players to creative problem-solving, often forcing them to think ahead when building their facility. We’ve worked hard to respectfully present Calamities as fun challenges that players can overcome using Prison Architect’s signature management gameplay,” says Gas Wright, Game Director on Prison Architect at Double Eleven. “Like our past expansions, Calamities are inspired by popular prison fiction seen in shows and movies. It’s great if players start to think more critically about these issues and how they might be solved in the real world.

Prison Architect: Perfect Storm Key Features:

Riot Before the Storm – “Calamities,” such as deep frosts, heat waves, rat infestations, and thunderstorms, can cause structural damage, lower prison ratings, and wreak havoc on the compound.
