Prison Boss VR is a crafting and trading game using room-scale to turn your VR space into a jail cell! Craft cigarettes, alcohol and cookies for other inmates! Customize your cell as your reputation grows! Earn cash until you can’t store it anymore and become the Prison Boss!
When night falls, you’re free to craft anything you have the materials for. However, be sure to stay alert, as guards are patrolling and will put an end to your doings as soon as they spot your belongings. When the guards come, hide your things in your furniture to get through the night without losing the items you worked so hard for.
Take jobs to unlock new possibilities and grow your reputation. Trade stuff to earn money, so you can buy more materials for crafting. Find the balance between crafting for jobs and trading for money. Try to progress while earning enough cash to acquire new tools and improve your jail cell.
To learn every crafting recipe, you’ll need to become the Prison Boss of all 4 jails and escape from them! If you want to test your skills, go into Arcade mode where every material is unlocked right from the start and fight the clock to craft the most items you can!
– 11 Different Items Available For Crafting
– 4 Prisons With Over 80 Jobs to Complete
– Unlockable Arcade Mode
– Play VR room-scale the way it was meant to be played
– Great jazzy soundtrack!
(also playable on Oculus Rift)

So far it is the best subscription game I played. I do not know why is that far in the Vive port list of Most Popular

Favourite game on Viveport subscription so far. I like that you can extend the game really as much as you’d like and just keep making and selling items, buying furniture, etc, if you don’t feel like doing the “jobs” to earn reputation.

tolles Spiel macht viel Spass! Ich hätte gern noch mehr Levels. Die Comicgrafik ist nett gemacht, es ist nicht zu schwer aber auch nicht zu einfach, ein schönes Spiel.

I don’t know what everyone’s talking about. Maybe they added a patch since then, but I haven’t experienced any errors. It runs very smoothly for me and is a super fun game! I played it for three hours straight because it really captured my attention and was a realistic environment to play in. I love the humor and designs. It’s perfect for anyone who loves a little bit of strategy mixed with thrilling action. Well done!

This game is insanely fun. I’ve played it more than any Viveport game so far.

Don’t let the crude, ugly art style be a distraction from what a ton of fun this game is to play. It’s very relaxing to play and can easily be made to fit a plethora of levels of intensity. The mechanics mesh with each other reasonably well, and even though the sense of humor is very slapstick, it’s not overtly unfunny. I have gotten very excited to play this game, and it challenges me to think quite a bit about my physical limits while I’m playing it.

Same issues as the others. As I attempt to go to the next day the screen goes black, music plays, and nothing else happens. I am assuming from the newest update, it had worked earlier and was quite enjoyable.
**They fixed the issue I had, and have changed my rating as such. Thank you.

One of few well made and fun vr games.
As it progresses you really have to come up with ways to store and craft your stuff while avoiding being caught by increasingly annoying cell guards. Also it’s a small economics simulator where you have to track prices and anticipate needs of your fellow inmates. All in all, nice work and well polished game 🙂

Very fun crafter and excellent use of a play space. I didn’t have TOO large of a place to play, but if you did then this would be perfect. My only issue, as an oculus user, was how they leveraged triggers to grab things rather than the grib buttons, which they used to orient you (kept hitting those on accident. Definitely one of the best rentals I’ve tried.

Well made , “job simulator like” game with a strategic element. You have to plan what to do next night so that you don’t get stuck.

ive recently noticed that i havent been able to get my hands to exist so i cant even make it past the start screen anymore if anyone knows a solution to this please tell me what is because other than that issue i absolutely love this game

This is a good game, a bit like job simulator, but in prison. It starts off a little repetative whilst you learn the ropes. then you must make choices about what to make so you keep your cash coming in so you can buyt supplies to make more things. I really like the game, Only reason its not 5* is that its a bit basic. But i may update at a later date once i’m further into the game.

Great fun so far, loving the immersion even though the characters are very egg shaped. cringe at the sound of guards footsteps and wait for the chance for your buddy jimmy to come buy all your smokes so you can get that new poster and desk u wanted. 10/10 notebook cigarettes.

First impression was super nice. But without achievements maybe I was like not so motivated to keep going with the other tasks and other prison. It was somewhat repetitive despite new tasks. Maybe I’ll try again and more.

i can’t view the game in the headset. It just shows on steam VR: (Unresponsive) PrisonBossVR64.exe.
The game is just unplayable.
It looks great from the screenshots but i wish i could play it.

I have all the requirements, and a windows mixed reality headset, but on the start-up, i choose room scale for calibration, but it wont let me choose it. Im stuck on the calibration menu.
