Chaotic online party game Crooks Like Us is out in Early Access

By - | Views: 10,311

Ready for something different and quite amusing? Crooks Like Us is a new in-development chaotic party game where you run around nabbing things in various heists.

The idea is completely silly and totally charming as up to 8 players scramble to collect as many items as possible, while stacking them all up and trying to balance them all the way to their escape van before the timer runs out. Stack up loads and it becomes hard to control - adding to the amusement. Other crooks can screw you over though by throwing things at you or dashing into you and say goodbye to your items.

There's a few different modes available to mix it up:

  • Free for all - grab as many items as possible before the timer runs out
  • Last Crook Standing - knock down the other crooks by dashing and throwing items
  • Teams - work in teams to grab the most items
  • First to 25k - the first Crook to earn 25k wins
  • Stack race - the first Crook to stack 10 items at once wins
  • Stack the logo - stack pieces of the Crooks Like Us logo in the right order to score

For the Early Access release now available, they plan to keep it in EA for around 8 months to add in more multiplayer levels and a bunch of singleplayer content too. The idea is brilliant so it will be interesting to see if they tweak it enough to pull in a good audience.

Find Crooks Like Us on Steam.

Reminds me a lot of a game on Nintendo Switch that is about moving furniture on time. It's really similar.
