Space Prison

New Polish studio Wooden Alien have announced Space Prison, a new tactical turn-based survival RPG.

Space Prison is in development for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.

“Space Prison combines survival with tactics and social dynamics” said Hubert Kubit, CEO at Wooden Alien. “We wanted to create a game that would immerse players in a detailed sci fi adventure universe and offer them a truly unique gameplay experience. With Space Prison, we believe we are well on our way to achieving that goal and are thrilled to be bringing it to PC, PlayStation and Xbox players”

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

Space Prison is the darkest hole in the universe, the experimental entity gathering both guilty and innocent aliens under the jurisdiction of the artificial system. To stay alive you’ll need to find allies among criminals. Fight for respect in brutal turn-based brawls. And domesticate this hole.

While struggling to survive, find out the dark secrets this place hides and there is a chance you’ll be able to find your way out of here, one way or another…


  • SOCIAL SURVIVAL – Earn the trust and respect of the criminals to make them your allies. Build useful connections by helping prisoners with various jobs and learn personal stories hidden underneath those crooked faces. Just don’t step on the wrong alien’s toes. It may be the last thing you ever do.
  • TACTICAL TURN-BASED BRAWLS – Fight other convicts, alien creatures and the prison system in fast-paced, tactical turn-based brawls. Use your brain and allies, and move those feet quickly if you don’t want your motionless body to float through space.
  • PRISON CELL BASE – Get cozy in your own prison cell, collect junky scraps and improve your super-fancy furnishings: rocky crafting bench, hidden storage behind posters or even a house for your pet rats. There’s no better place than home, right?
  • CRAFTING CONTRABAND – Look for scraps, destroy prison property, hunt alien vermin – all to get resources for crafting illegal tools and weapons that you or your inmates need. Be careful not to get caught and you’ll do just fine, fish.
  • BECOME A GANG BOSS – Join one of the prison gangs, like Gravity Fist or Hypernova, with different alien creatures, agendas and fighting styles. Use their backs to climb to the top of a social ladder and become powerful enough to face the prison system itself.
  • RAT COMPANIONS – There is no better friend than a rat. Gather snacks for these filthy creatures and soon enough you’ll have an army of long-toothed vermins ready to die for you. Just look into their cute red eyes!
