Payday heist is a 4 player Coop FPS. The objective... get rich or die trying.

Killing as many heavily armed police and SWAT members as they have to (or want) while (usually) avoiding civilian casualties.

Dallas, Hoxton, Chains and Wolf, who originally used Clown masks but you have the option of using many other kinds.

Restraining civilians allows you to use them as a bargaining chip to release any of your imprisoned team mates. Killing civilians is frowned upon by the police, doing so will prevent you from negotiating the release of team mate(s) over a period of time.

Over time your share of the money you've accumulated allows you better access to equipment like ammo/doctor bags, new guns, explosives, modified weaponry, improved body armor, and abilities.
The group's first heist took place at the First World Bank, where they entered a vault by using thermite and stole a large amount of money. A post-game message congratulates the group, telling them that they are "set for life", but now they are going to do more heists just for the hell of it,
and who knows... it may payoff.

First off, this isn't an indie game, and second, this game was horrible.
