Introversion Software have received over $100,000 in funding for Prison Architect in just three days. The game sees players build and maintain a prison, complete with all the trials and tribulations that are involved with this task.
Reported by indiegamemag, the company has made 2600 sales so far through a system similar to Kickstarter. The game is offered at different pricing tiers on the game’s official website. The tiers range from $30 to $1,000 and give instant access to the alpha build of the game, access to the full build at launch and other rewards depending on the tier.
