Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Start a new game and save it, then exit the game. Use a text editor to edit a prison file in the “/app data/local/introversion/Prison architect/Saves” directory. Search for the word finance and you will see value for balance. Change it to whatever amount desired, save, and start the game. Open your edited saved game, and you should see the altered balance.
