Thief Town is a multiplayer stealth action game for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android devices. 2-4 players control identical avatars (the “Thief”) in a single-screen arena (the “Town”) filled with other identical NPCs. Players must identify which NPCs are actually other players and stab them for points, without being discovered or stabbed themselves. New items and game modes are layered on as the game progresses, including pistols, smoke bombs, drunks, sheriffs, and giant tumbleweeds! The game’s art style fuses "wild west"-inspired pixel art with the grain and charm of silent movies. Thief Town can be played cross-platform over LAN and includes controller support for multiple players.
I'm proud to announce that the new v1.1 update for Thief Town (titled Spooky Town) will go live this Friday (3/20). The update includes new content, features, gameplay tweaks and bug fixes. Here is a quick rundown of the major additions.
A new version of the app will be released alongside Spooky Town, with a complete rework. Instead of acting as a separate screen, the app simply functions as a controller. To connect, the desktop version of the game will generate a room code, and all you have to do is type this code in on the mobile end. This fixes all the connectivity and control issues with the original mobile app.
The game now features a new level, with both daytime and nighttime versions: the graveyard. I won't give away all the secrets but I will say there are ghosts, spooky statues, invisible showdowns, and... MORE.
The graveyard features two new music tracks by ABSRDST, both of which are included in the OST folder.
Spy Town now includes two new items: the TNT and the Booze. It's up to you to find out what they do.Some other highlights are new titles assigned to players at the end of each game:
The saloon has also undergone a graphical update and features some new options:
There are quite a few other changes, but I'll hold off on mentioning them for now.I will post a full changelog when the update is live.
Depending on how this update is received, I may go back and work on adding even more content to the game. However, for the time being, I am working on porting the game over to consoles- specifically the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. I expect these versions to go live mid-late summer. If you're interested in the console versions, or in any of our other projects, feel free to follow us on the social media links below.
