Getting your Name in the Game.
One of the coolest aspects of Prison Architect being in alpha is our ability to engage with the community and add colour and depth to the game based on the creativity of all the players. Already over 2500 people have forever stamped their personality onto the game by adding their name and bio to the game and we’d love you to join them.

You’ll name a prisoner and write his rap sheet (the reason he ended up inside). You can write whatever you like (within reason). They can be funny or serious or make a point, my personal favourite is:

"McCabe bludgeoned 3 fellow golfers to death after one sneezed while he was putting for the club record score. He missed, no one would own up so he killed all 3"

Once you’ve picked up the Name In The Game pack from Steam you’ll be issued with a key that looks like this:


Armed with that, follow the instructions

And everyone that plays Prison Architect will know that *you* helped make it a reality.

Mad Perry Gibson is likely to find a shiv, watch out for that one!

I would like this option without the music, drawings and other games... can you guys try selling a copy of the game + this ?

Bloody hell, I am feeling quite stupid at the moment. I bought the name a prisoner tier and I can't for the life of me find the actual key. The game starts just fine but I can't just right click it in my steam list to get the key like with other games. I have gotten no email other than the steam receipt which contained no key and I can't see the key in the steam overlay in game either. Where exactly am I supposed to look?

Im in the same boat as Ashana. I have gotten no key by mail and i can't seem to find it in steam either.

To find your key, you just have to click on Prison Architect in your Steam library. Off to the right-hand side, there'll be a CD Key button. Just click that, and there you go.

Not for me there isn't.

Yeah I looked there before (and again now) but it is not there.

I see no way to get a key :/

Yeah people have been having problems in getting their key. The best guess is that Steam has ran out of keys for the moment, which is not that rare. Unfortunately you´ll just have to be patient and wait for new keys to be generated.

Thank you DariusRaider. That may or may not be the problem. It would be nice with some kind of acknowledgement of whether or not that is the case. Either here or in the mail I sent introversion.

@King Darwinian: Hi, I don't know if I'm really gonna buy the game, it looks good for sure, but I wanted to say the "name an inmate" feature is just SO SMART !! Brilliant idea !

^ I agree! Glad I went to prison. Reminds me everytime I play this to never go back.

How edit BodyType, BodyScale, SkinColour, Traits, HeadType and other ? I don't see a form where they can be entered or we can enter only name ? Interesting )))
