I’ve been getting a ton of requests to post the 5th Chapter of the Prison Architect Prison Story campaign, Bootstraps as I had left it out of my campaign review of the game last week. I didn’t want to spoil the story for anyone and had left it out intentionally. Many people wanted to see it whether it be to just finish watching how the story played out or how to actually finish the chapter itself. Well, I got the gameplay video for it now and it’s a hefty 2 1/2 hour video.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
This 5th chapter entitled Bootstraps requires at lot more time and effort than the previous chapters. Why is that? Because this chapter makes you start from scratch essentially. The prison from the first chapter has been completely bulldozed to make way for a more modern prison and it’s up to you to build that prison. You start with very little money, but you are taught how to accept grants to gain funds in advance in order to build your prison.
This is a very difficult chapter to complete if you don’t play it smart. Take grants that you know you can finish quickly, and try to do them in the order that you are building your prison. Start off with a small prison first and then expand it out to take in more prisoners. Remember, the goal is to build a profitable prison so make sure you’re making more money than you’re spending.
Other than that, just take your time and don’t get frustrated. Good luck!
