Since after 2000, simulation video games have moved past traditional domains like airplanes, boats, cars, and population management. There are all sort of simulators today, ranging from training to be a doctor to flipping houses to putting yourself in the cloven hoofs of a goat that basically go around head butting unsuspecting people and spoiling backyard parties.
If you think this genre has pretty much every topics covered, well, think again. Because, Thief Simulator is a thing now. Believe it! Developed by Noble Muffins and published by PlayWay S.A., Thief Simulator is what it says it is. To put it bluntly, it is game where you build your career as a thief. For added realism, you will be doing the deeds in first person.
Here’s the official description:
“Become the real thief. Steal in free roam sandbox neighborhoods. Observe your target and gather information that will help you with the burglary. Take the challenge and rob the best secured houses. Buy some hi-tech burglar equipment and learn new thief tricks. Sell stolen goods to the passers. Do anything that a real thief does!”
“A good thief always observes his target. What’s inside? Who lives there? What’s your target day schedule? Find out when the house is empty and does it have nosy neighbors. Choose from lots of possible approaches to prepare the best plan. Many modern devices available in Thief Simulator might come in handy with gathering intel about your target and it’s neighborhood.”
Man, that sounds so wrong on so many levels. Anyways, if you aspired to be crook, then I supposed Thief Simulator is right up your criminal alley. Thief Simulator was officially launched in November 2018 and it is now available on Steam for $19.99 a copy.
Keep going for a game trailer if you are keen.
