Prison Architect Giveaway on (Offer Expired)

Prison Architect is a Real-time game that encourages you to take up some managerial skills.

You need to build a maximum security prison and manage it. Prisoners will be constantly arriving and you need to make sure that they have a cell ready for accommodation with proper facilities.

Of course, things will start to get messy if you fail to have enough rooms or weak security.

Vecter is an interesting fast-paced runner and shooter available for Linux on Steam. It is completely a free-to-play game that launched a month ago but it is getting a lot of good attention and reviews.
