When you begin you will have a low security rating and must, with effort and managerial skill, improve your prison, maintain inmate discipline and increase your security to maximum. As time passes more inmates will arrive and you must deal with each new influx as they step off the prison bus, all of them needing to be housed and fed.
Raise funds for the upkeep of your inmates, staff and facilities by building on-site factories where your inmates can work. Will you rehabilitate offenders by allowing them learn trade skills or educate themselves while in prison, or discuss their issues with the prison Therapist? Or will you simply send in the guards to quell unrest...
- High level AI, with friendly interaction and fighting between inmates dependant upon mood and gang affiliation. Guards will subdue agressive prisoners, medical staff treat injuries, Chaplains administer to prisoner's spiritual needs and Therapists talk to prisoners to lift their spirits.

Ever wondered what it will be like to build a prison from the ground up? Few people do. But Prison Tycoon, a game built by ValuSoft, shows players just how challenging and fun it is to build and run a prison, all while trying to get ahead financially. In Prison Tycoon, players first decide on the structure of their prison, beginning with the building. Choosing from a variety of materials and remote locations, players can customize their prison and build a fence to keep prisoners in. Then players can also choose their staff: wardens, guards, and cooks are a few of the people players can customize and then influence. Players begin with a low-security prison and build their way up to high-security by successfully maintaining stability within the prison. Overcoming financial problems and keeping prisoners from breaking out in riot are a few of the obstacles players must rise above in order to be successful. One way to achieve balance is to plan activities for prisoners and break up gang fights. One of the challenges of Prison Tycoon is finding the perfect balance for discipline. Too much or too little can lead to catastrophe. Prison Tycoon is a game for those who enjoy the feeling of power. In this world, the player has complete control of what goes on, at least until the people in the prison start interacting on their own; then, complete chaos can erupt. Nonetheless, running this small world will prove satisfactory to many players.
