Amazingly deep, fun, replayable, and just smart!

For starters if you are reading this review thinking about buying a cheap, weird but fun looking game and wonder if the reviews are fake - I assure you they are not! I'm 100% real, rarely give five star reviews, and this game is just as amazing as everyone says.

You can play it multiple times as 100 different characters with specific and individual goals and skills, and the replay value is made stronger by the fact that every little tentacle of each possible storyline is written with depth and intelligence.

For example, I played once as a prisoner and worked hard to get parole. I was recommended for parole but at the last moment the warden noticed I had the "banker" skill and decided to keep me in prison for his tax scheme. So my new goal (complete with a heartbroken, 0 happiness prisoner) was to escape and take the warden hostage.

Which after a long while, I did.

And that's just one possible little storyline. Any prison life/break story or fantasy you've heard of or had is in this game somewhere. Finding them is half the fun.

It's soooooo good, guys. Buy it. Seriously.

Best game ever

This game is so fun... I recommend getting this game immediately. It is such a time waster but is still really fun. also while you are prisoning you can see what every character is from. There are a ton of details and other stuff I did not even notice on the first few times, like the snitch guy and mad docter.
Have a nice day!

Overall, I think this is an awesome game, but, why does the theme have to be about prison life, also can we add in app purchases please? This genre is awesome, but like I said, why prison? Game developers can you read this we need more games like this and more updates! Don't give up on this beautiful game!
