People talk about the price of Prison Architect but they don't know the story behind it. The price is purposely high because, not unlike Minecraft, they are funding their own game this way. They decided not to go to Kickstarter and do it their own way and they succeeded in selling more than $1M of alphas in 8 months. Also, they made the price high to ensure those coming to the alpha would stick to the alpha and offer feedback.

Hence, if this title fancies you and you want to support the devs, go ahead and get the alpha. Otherwise, wait for release day where the price will be cheaper.

Here's a let's play video of Prison Architect:
I appreciate the info. Price higher during alpha, interesting concept. Not sure I personally like that pricing model, but I like to see devs trying interesting stuff.

Edit: "Sketchiest yard ever" lol!
