The player can take on several jobs that allow them to advance within the game. This can be expected to include building relationships with NPCs, scavenging resources, and taking part in events that affect the game world.

There are currently six jobs available.

Completing the quota for the work period will result in being paid. Performing additional work once the quota has been met will not result in additional money, so it is safe to leave once the quota has been met.

Each job requires the player to perform a different set of tasks, though all rely on taking some type of item and converting it into another via crafting or using the machines present at the job location.

The pay for each job differs. The Laundry pays the least, followed by the Kitchen,followed by the Wood Shop, and lastly the Metal Shop.


Your criminal attitude stinks, and so do your overalls! The only thing I want to smell on you inmates is the fresh scent of justice.

Take dirty outfits from the container in the laundry room and place them into the washers. Once spun, take them out and put them into the clean laundry container.

Move dirty clothes to washing machine and move clean clothes from washing machine to the clean clothes box.

This job is a good way to get the Guard Outfit to help with your escape.


The inspectors calof taste and/or smell is not essential. Don’t worry about washing your hands.

Take uncooked food from the freezer in the kitchen and place them in the ovens. Once cooked, take them out and put them on the serving trays in the canteen.

Metal Shop

The automotive industry is booming! The only booming you will hear is the sound of licence plates being pressed. The harder you work, the sooner I get my sporty little convertible.

Take metal sheets from the container in the metalshop and use them on the presses to create license plates. Put the finished plates in the relevant container.

Take metal from the left box and use it on the press to create license plates. Move completed license plates to the box on the right. Both metal and license plates can be stolen and license plates can be used to escape prison, you can show them to the guards and they will let you out


Clean up your act and clean up our floors whilst you’re at it! I want you to make those floors, the foundations of *YOUR* reform, look their best.

Collect a mop or broom from the janitor office and use it to remove patches of dirt you find around the prison.

Note: Sometimes there is not enough mess and you will be fired for not meeting the quota.


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, which is why I’m asking you to do it for me. Collect mail from the mailroom and deliver it to the inmates it’s addressed to.

You can either give it to them personally or leave it ON (not in) their cell desk.


Responsibly sourced by us, irresponsibly hammered together by you lot. Our wood shop has found quite the market for our ‘vintage inspired’ furniture. No craftsmanship required, the prison is *NOT* responsible for splinters. Take three timbers from the container in the woodshop and craft them into furniture. Place the finished product in the furniture container


Dream of working in the great outdoors? Being at one with nature and all that? Then introduce yourself to the weeds plaguing our courtyards. Collect a hoe from the gardening office and use it to remove weeds around the prison grounds.
