[Update] Introversion Software's prison management sim Prison Architect is coming to mobile
Updated on January 30th, at 15:48: Introversion has said that it's working on iPad and Android versions of the game at the moment.

It will be kept as close to the PC version as possible, but some concessions - such as a population cap in your prison - may be made for the lower power of tablets.

Original story follows...

British indie studio Introversion Software (creator of Uplink) has announced that it will be bringing its detailed prison management sim Prison Architect to mobile.

The announcement was slipped in among the news that Prison Architect has sold over a million copies on PC during its alpha phase since 2012.

Introversion also confirmed that the game will exit alpha and the finished version should be released in 2015. With that, Introversion revealed that it would be "branching out."

"We're currently developing a mobile version," the studio said today.

Introversion also said that it has teamed up with John Cook of Bad Management LLP to find a publisher for console versions of Prison Architect.

Will that include PS Vita and 3DS? It's unknown at this point.

Prison Architect challenges you to build a maximum security prison from scratch and then manage it without everything falling apart.
