Hmm, I never heard of that. It also sounds like it's more of a strategy or sim game rather than an RPG though.

The developers of Prisonscape have always been clear that despite it's 16 bit JRPG appearance, Prisonscape is a cRPG where you build your character & stats matter a lot and there's narrative choice & consequences.

I hadn't heard much about the combat system, aside from it being turn-based. But you can see it briefly in action in some videos on their youtube channel. To avoid spoilers skip to the start of combat at 3 mins.
