New Prison Architect Story & Mode Announced

Introversion announces new features that will be part of Prison Architect when the strategy game officially breaks out of Early Access on October 6th. The game will include a brand new story, as well as a new Escape Mode, and this video shows an EGX presentation where Chris Delay and Mark Morris introduce us to these additions. Here's a bit on how the game will allow you to channel your inner Andy Dufresne:
Prison Architect opens with the story of Edward, a man facing the electric chair for committing a crime of passion. Introversion have extended this with four additional chapters focusing on different characters and aspects of prison life. From Mafia Dons to power-crazed senators, Prison Architect brings these characters to life. Introversion teamed up with award-winning professional writer Chris Hastings to produce an enthralling tale of corruption and human misery set against the background of the modern prison industrial complex.

Escape Mode sees the traditional Prison Architect gameplay turned on its head. Take control of an individual prisoner, load any of the tens of thousands of prisons uploaded to the Steam Workshop and get on with the important business of escaping. Earn experience points by shanking a guard, form up a posse of rough-necks and head to the armory to shoot your way out or steal some tools from the workshop and start digging a tunnel hidden behind a picture of Raquel Welch.

Out of the Blue

Hat's off to the New York Mets, as my hometown heroes actually managed to clinch the National League East title yesterday, securing a trip to the playoffs. It was certainly not how I expected the season to go, but between the continued development of a young pitching staff, some great mid-season trades, and an admittedly weak division, the team managed to play well all season, and is heading into the playoffs with a good head of steam. As Casey Stengel used to say, amazin'!
