Prison Architect Early AccessSteam | £6.79 (Save £10)

Here's another one of those tried-and-tested Early Access titles that isn't finished, but we reckon is already an enjoyable and worthwhile game in its own right. Constructing your own high security prison is as addictive as it is slightly grim, especially at a 66% discount.

Hopefully Introversion aren't about to pull a DF-9, mind. As always, remember that Early Access has inherent risks and you might be better off waiting for v.1.0.

They better not do a DF-9 as this is one early access I did take up (unlike DF-9 as I mentioned in the previous article). It was in a humble bundle for similar money that I took advantage of so I did get some other games for the money. I also believe introversion have done similar in the past with their other games so hopefully we're be ok!

@phil16: In fairness I don't think there's anything to worry about here.

PA has been one of the poster children for Early Access projects with regular updates and good communication - both in terms of major milestones and warning about potential pitfalls (such as when one of the team had to take time off when his baby was born, and the rest of the team pitched in to at least secure an interim update during that time).

Plus, again, it's already a good game. And it's not even finished yet!

But considering the risks involved, I always try to make it clear that Early Access can be a gamble rather than wording it like a normal deal.
