Private prisons have become the new growth industry. You will construct and run an efficient rehabilitation facility with nothing but money on your mind. There's no escaping under your watchful eye as you oversee every detail of prison life. Start from the ground up placing the very walls and fences that will house and contain your prisoners. Choose from multiple isolated environments and get to work. Begin with a low security prison and build it up to a maximum security facility for the world's most dangerous criminals. Expertly staff your prison with wardens, guards, cooks, and rehabilitation experts. Carefully balance your budget, maintain prisoner morale, and minimize the potential for financial meltdown. Determine the overall security level of your lockdown, but beware! Too harsh a prison will create a dangerous environment and could spark prisoner riots. Too lenient an approach will result in rampant gang activity. In Prison Tycoon, crime doesn't pay... but justice does!
