Description

Thief Town is a local multiplayer-only stealth action game set in a pixel-perfect rendition of the Wild West. Lurk in the crowd, emulate non-player characters, and achieve backstabbing victory. Up to 4 players control identical avatars (the “Thieves”) in a single-screen arena (the “Town”), also filled with other identical NPCs. Players must identify which NPCs are secretly other players and stab them for points, before being discovered and stabbed themselves!

History

After being in development for over a year as a browser game, Thief Town was given a graphical overhaul, controller support, new game modes, and hi-res knife textures. The game released in September on Humble and was Greenlit for Steam in December. On March 20th, 2015, the free update "SPOOKY TOWN" was released, adding new levels, music, items, and...ghosts?!
