Hypnospace Outlaw publisher No More Robots and co-developers SkyBagel and RogueCode have unveiled Heist Simulator, a strategy game that challenges you to plan, play and share your own elaborate heists.
The game promises you’ll be able to create a range of cunning heists from a broad range of possibilities. These include action-packed capers, puzzle-based jobs, narrative campaigns or escape-room type heists and more using the game’s own level creation and sharing tools. You’ll then be able to share your creations online with friends, and challenge them to complete them successfully.
You’ll then be able to browse the ‘Heist Cloud’ — a repository of campaigns and levels built by other players. After downloading one, you’ll get to guide your own team to plan, hack and otherwise overcome the obstacles in those heists to prove you can pull them off and cement yourselves as the greatest heist team this side of The Italian Job.
The game’s creation tools will be available from today on PC thanks to the Steam Playtest system, while the full game will be available “later this year” on PC and Google Stadia. A console release, although No More Robots stopped short of confirming which ones, is also planned for the near future.
In the meantime, you can check out a trailer for Heist Simulator below.
