Learn to break locks in Sophie's Safecracking Simulator

By - | Views: 10,130

Sophie's Safecracking Simulator is a wonderful little experience (is it even a game?) that gives you the opportunity to attempt to break various locks. Created by Sophie Houlden, the same developer who made the brilliant and highly customizable Sophie's Dice.

You've broken locks in all sorts of games, although they're never particularly difficult and usually just involve rotating one thing until it becomes easy as some kind of mini-game, but what about one that teaches you a little about mechanical locks? Sophie's Safecracking Simulator does that and plenty more. There's a wonderful multi-step tutorial to walk you through different pieces of a lock, along with some high-tech tools you can use and you can keep generating a new lock to bust through in record time.

Quoting: LightkeyOh, I know someone who should do a review on this. Paging the LockPickingLawyer!

Hopefully a longer video than 1:28.

Game that is all about breaking locks does have a luxury of making things bit more complicated. For example in Dying Light you have to be careful in order not to break your lockpick and be quick enough that zombies don't come to distract you. So the difficulty comes more from pressure than from actually complicated lock picking minigame.

So $2.50 for the game, I learn to pick locks, and afterwards I never have to pay for anything ever again? Pretty sweet deal!
