Prison Architect

Prison Architect

Build and Manage A Maximum Security Prison.

Build and manage a Maximum Security Prison. As the sun casts it’s early morning rays on a beautiful patch of countryside the clock starts ticking. You’ve got to crack on and build a holding cell to detain the job­ lot of maximum security prisoners that are trundling to your future prison on their yellow bus. As your workmen lay the last brick you don’t have a moment to let them rest as they need to get started on the first proper cell block so you can make room for the next prisoner intake. Once they’ve all got a place to lay their weary heads the fun can really start.

You’ll need a canteen, infirmary and a guard room, oh, and don’t forget to plumb in a toilet, or things will get messy, but what about a workout area? Or solitary confinement cells? Or an execution chamber?

Inspired by Dungeon Keeper, Dwarf Fortress and Theme Hospital and with over 1 million players having spent time inside, Prison Architect is the world’s best lock-­em-­up.

Story Mode

Prison Architect opens with the story of Edward, a man facing the electric chair for committing a crime of passion. This is followed by four additional chapters focusing on different characters and aspects of prison life. From Mafia Dons to power-crazed senators, Prison Architect has them all! To bring these characters to life, Introversion teamed up with award winning professional writer Chris Hastings, producing an enthralling tale of corruption and human misery set against the background of the modern prison industrial complex.

Escape Mode

Finished your supermax? Got guard dogs roving every corridor and prisoners eating out of your hand? Now you can live the horror by firing up escape mode and play as a prisoner hell-bent on getting the hell out of dodge.

Dig a tunnel, go for the armoury or start a riot and slip out in the chaos, it’s entirely up to you! Figure out how to escape from your own creation, or hit the random button and load one of the 12,000 prisons created by the steam co

Blitzkrieg 3

Blitzkrieg 3



Choose your side in the largest-scale war in the history of mankind and fight with real players from all over the world!

Build your fortifications, gain access to advanced military developments, and earn the right to be assigned to more critical sectors of the front.

Demonstrate your strategic mastery in the single player campaign by taking part in the key operations of the European Theatre.

An online strategy game without a subscription or any microtransactions, Blitzkrieg 3 is being created with the active participation of the player community: after just a few months of Early Access, we introduced a new multiplayer mode, raised the level cap for base development, and completely reworked our combat system to make it more realistic.

Decide the fate of this project together with us!


  • The main multiplayer mode consisting of the attack and defence of fortified areas

    The multiplayer game is a simulated front line where one player attacks key strategic points and the other defends them. Assault the fortifications of players from all over the world and build up your own defences so that any attacking enemy gets clobbered. Now there’s a challenge worthy of a real strategist!
  • Historical Campaign of 1939–45

    The historical single player campaign covers the main period of World War II, from the Invasion of Poland in 1939 to the capture of Berlin by Soviet forces in 1945. Throughout the campaign, you can try fighting as all three game factions and participate in the most interesting tactical operations of World War II. The best strategists will get extra rewards for completing optimal playthroughs! Several missions from the single player campaign have already been introduced in the Early Access version.
  • Three Sides to the Conflict

    The USSR, the Axis powers, or the Western Allies—choose whose side you will join! Take command over one of the sides in the conflict and have a wide range of World War II military units—from assault squads to rocket artillery—at your disposal. Your soldiers aren’t just bargaining chips. Every one of them can work his way up from a greenhorn novice to a battle-hardened veteran, and extra field finalization in the Engineer’s Workshop allows you to customize any military unit to meet your tactical needs.
  • Continuous Gameplay

    Never stop fighting, even if you turn off your computer! While you are studying or working, the general you assign takes command over your fortifications. Place defensive lines in potential attack directions and let the AI finish what you have started.
  • Game Commanders

    Appoint Montgomery as the commander of your forces and defeat Manstein! Rokossovsky, Patton, and other World War II generals, each with his own unit assignment and favourite combat tactics, make the tactical development of the game even more diverse.
  • One Unified Game World

    So you live in the US and your opponent lives in Germany? No problem! Blitzkrieg 3 allows players from all over the world to play on a single server, in a single game world, without any barriers or language restrictions.
  • No Subscriptions or Microtransactions

    You pay only once: when you buy the game. There are no extra payments, such as monthly subscriptions or microtransactions. All game content (an Early Access version right now and the full copy on the day of the official release) is at your complete disposal!

War for the Overworld

War for the Overworld

Tired of invading dungeons? It’s time you build your own!

Do you feel you are in a slump? Monotonously disembowelling evil guys in endless quests for gold and a slightly better pair of boots? You are starting to wonder… are heroics really your calling? Welcome to the War for the Overworld!

War for the Overworld is a Dungeon Management Game that employs your favourite aspects of the RTS and God Game genres. You play an all-powerful, malevolent Underlord, long banished to the Aether. With unrivalled dark power and an insatiable desire for bloody conquest, you will arise once more, and reclaim your realm!

In your absence, the Underworld lost its way. It became feeble and afraid of the Empire of the Overworld, which grew strong and boldly comfortable in its quiet retirement from evil-slaying. Carve out your dungeon from the soil and stones of the Underworld, and build dozens of unique rooms to attract a myriad of creatures to your halls to work and fight for you.

In addition to your faithful followers, you have destructive spells and powerful rituals to cast upon any unsuspecting goodly Hero (or rival Underlord) who dares to breach your unhallowed halls. With your unmatched dark powers and mighty army of bloodthirsty minions, you are ready for your War for the Overworld!Key Features

  • Veins of Evil – Choose from over 60 rooms, spells, potions, rituals, defences and constructs in the Veins of Evil as you progress through the game. There are a plethora of possible Vein combinations you can use to conquer the Overworld. Create your own unique flavour of evil!
  • Fortify Your Domain – Build a wide variety of defences within your walls to defend against — and destroy — those who seek to invade your domain.
  • Cast Wicked Spells – Call down unholy magic to strengthen your dungeon, route enemy forces, flood corridors with Micropiglets, or simply turn a meddlesome Hero into a geyser of giblets.
  • Unleash Devastating Rituals – Punish your foes or empower your own forces with game-changing Rituals that can do anything from raising an undead army, to instantly fortifying your entire dungeon.
  • Command Powerful Minions – Over 20 minions await your call, and will gladly work and fight under your banner… if you provide them with all the creature comforts they demand.
  • Conquer the Overworld – Play through a feature-length campaign, facing off against the Emperor of the Overworld as you fight for complete supremacy in the Realm of Kairos

Xenonauts

Xenonauts

Xenonauts is a strategy game in which you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat. A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games from the 1990s. We aim to improve the graphics, add new content and streamline the interface whilst still retaining all of the key mechanics of the original games. Devoted fans should love this game, but we’re also keen to introduce the joys of old-school grand strategy to a whole new generation of players who might not otherwise experience it!

Please note that the native Mac / Linux versions of the game are still in beta, however older WINE-wrapped "ports" are available and known to be stable whilst development of the native ports is still ongoing.Key Features

  • Ground Combat: Xenonauts delivers tense turn-based combat across realistic, varied and fully-destructible battlefields, against almost fifty different variants of enemy. Missions range from capturing crashed UFOs or alien bases to defending cities (or even Xenonaut facilities) against alien attack. You’ll experience the chill of encountering a new alien for the first time and the joys of test-firing a new weapon for the first time. Deeply asymmetric combat keeps the battles interesting – after all, you’re fighting intergalactic invaders with 1970’s ballistic technology!
  • Strategic Management: You will also be managing the defence of the planet, dealing with the invading alien UFOs with your customisable interceptors. You need to balance the needs of your funding nations with your own. Your funds are limited – are you going to spend them on battlefield equipment, more scientists, or expanding your coverage of the planet? Your priorities must be balanced carefully if you are to win the war.
  • Research Tree: Xenonauts has an extensive research tree with almost a hundred projects to unlock, each with its own unique description and painted artwork. It slowly reveals the intentions and origins of the invaders, while also unlocking new battlefield equipment, aircraft and vehicles for you to use as you harness alien technology and turn it against them.
  • Persistent Soldiers: Soldiers in Xenonauts are persistent from mission to mission, improving their stats and gaining ranks with combat experience – but their deaths are always only a single bad move away. You will grow to care about the brave men and women under your command as they slowly grow from green rookies into hardened veterans, but that only makes it more painful when their heroic tale is cruelly cut short by a burst of plasma fire…
  • Detailed, Emergent Simulation: Xenonauts contains no scripted missions, just broad rules setting the pace of the invasion. As such, no game plays out the same twice. If you shoot a Scout UFO down over a polar area, you get a Crash Site mission where you can capture a crashed Scout UFO in an Arctic tileset. Commence a battle at night and you’ll be fighting the mission in the darkness with reduced sight range. If your base is attacked, you fight the defence in a perfect replica of your base. A lot of time has gone into weaving the two very different halves of the game together into something that feels both natural and enjoyable.
