Update #2[edit | edit source]

Hey prisoners,

Todays update (376911) adds a new map- a minimum security prison named Center Perks. This will be the very first prison in the game, so obviously the easiest one of the bunch. If you’ve escaped Fhurst Peak you’ll have no problem with this one at all. If you haven’t yet, well then have a go at this instead.

There’s also a couple of new jobs (janitor and mailman) to try out, and as requested I’ve added in a game help section in the pause menu, which goes over the basics of the game for any newcomers.

As always, if you come across any bugs or issues let us know in the Report a problem forum. As a note there may be minor issues related to quest items if you load an old save on this new build due to some coding changes.
