Hard Time is a prison simulation game developed by Mat Dickie based on the idiom "Hard Time". It was released for PC in 2006 and was later ported to mobile devices in 2013. A 2D version of the game was released on Steam on October 1, 2013.

In the game, the player creates and controls a prisoner who must survive until their prison sentence is over. The first sentence can be anywhere from 51-99 days, but good or bad behavior throughout the game can shorten or extend your sentence. The primary objective is to survive the entire prison term and to be free to the outside world.


Joel streamed the game multiple times. This game garnered its Vinesauce following when Joel decided to make Bulk Bogan as a character. He soon became a fan favorite and one of Joel's mascots.
