Introversion Software's prison-sim is coming to consoles this spring. Double Eleven is porting Prison Architect over to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

The game lets players play warden and design the prison of their dreams – whether that means locking inmates away and throwing away the virtual keys or taking a softer, more rehabilitative-focused approach. Either way, you'll have to deal with troublemakers (surprise!), ensure that staff and inmates are safe, and try to turn a profit. The console version is getting an exclusive prison-warden mode that presents players with several premade installations so they can dive right into the game, as well as the ability to share prisons with other players online.

Joe liked the game on PC, and you can read his review here.
