Prison Architect development continues to progress with the release of Alpha 3, available now to those who participated in Introversion's rather successful alpha buy-in scheme. This update adds a fog of war that will close in on any areas that aren't manned by a guard, or overlooked by a security camera. The mouse can illuminate a limited area, but not enough to easily catch a swift shiv transaction between savvy inmates. Chris Delay and Mark Morris suggest that fog of war is a set-up for some interesting additions in future updates.
