This is the boring bit – but we’re told it really is quite important – so please bear with us. One reason for that is that, in the case of Prison Architect we are letting you play game whilst it is being developed and therefore isn’t finished – so there is a chance (a very good chance) it won’t work – yet. On the plus side you will get to see interesting things like prisoners' heads replaced with sprites which (hopefully) won’t be in the finished game.
We don’t want you getting all upset about that because we’ll try and make it work eventually and so this legal bit explains the bits and pieces around things like that.
Also we’re giving some of you the chance to create / influence the creation of content for Prison Architect and there will be opportunities for you to share ideas, opinions, thoughts and just communicate with us and each other. That means we need to make sure that you behave appropriately and don’t do anything that gets us into trouble.
Basically we don't want to go to the hole because we’re giving you early access to work in progress or because we are letting do the various cool things around our game.
