Shoplifting 2 is a stealth-based and a strategy videogame in which a group of characters, recently cast out of the Forgotten Realms, are doomed to underground life in our contemporary world and need to survive in a shopping centre.
The game therefore consists in shoplifting all sorts of products from the different shops.
Shoplifting 2 subverts the mechanism of many asset management games, since here the gameplay involves getting the goods and money WITHOUT PRODUCING ANYTHING nor BUYING THE GOODS(...) The Shoplifter is born from the existential tensions between the hero and the consumer.
Shoplifting 2 is a total conversion of Baldur’s Gate II, it uses the Infinity Engine to create a completely new game. The interface has been modified to fit the new game system, and the settings of medieval fantasy have been substitued by others close to the contemporary universe. The tools used to make the conversion are those developed by the huge modder’s community of the Infinity Engine, so Shoplifting 2 is also moddifiable and expandable.
Shoplifting 2 is freely available to download from the web of the project (www.shoplifting2.com) in english and spanish. The game manual is also available for free in either the printed or the pdf version.
