Tactical turn-based stealth game Spirited Thief releases September 19

By - | Views: 24,108

Spirited Thief looks pretty sweet. A tactical turn-based stealth game with a twist, where you take your time to scout ahead and plan your heist as your ghostly friend, then use your knowledge to break in and break out with pricey loot.

More about it: "Another job gone wrong... Elaj - unlucky thief with a few magic tricks upon his sleeves - and Trin - his partner-in-crime who happens to be an intangible spirit - are on the verge of being kicked out of the ruthless Thieves Guild! Determined to prove themselves to the guild, and make some sweet steals in the process, Elaj and Trin must work together to infiltrate heavily protected vaults, mysterious crypts, and more. With the occasional help of allies, what secrets, treasures, and troubles will the pair get their hands on?"

The developer recently revealed that it will launch on September 19th, along with Native Linux support and there's a brand new trailer to show off too:

  • Steal as Elaj, the thief. Loot as much as you can without giving the guards time to react.
  • Outsmart enemies, sneak through locked doors, and break down magical barriers. No door can stop you.
  • With turn-based gameplay, get in and get out before the guards become aware of your presence. You’ve only got so long, so use your turns wisely.
  • Infiltrate wealthy castles, dark dungeons, and occult lairs under the guidance of the infamous thieves' guild.
  • Upgrade your skills with new and exciting abilities in exchange for your ill-gotten gains.
  • Study your briefings so you know what you’re getting into and what to look out for. Will you take it slow and steady to find all the secrets, or is a smash-and-grab more up your street?

Should hopefully be nice on Steam Deck at release as well as desktop Linux, as the developer showed off work previously to make it with nicely with gamepads.

You can follow it on Steam.

That looks kind of nice.
At one point there's a bit of dialogue like "Damn it! We're completely surrounded!" and I'm imagining the spirit saying "What do you mean 'we', meat man?"

Getting a great Invisible Inc vibe from this, with the vision comes and knockouts. I'll wishlist for sure.

Edit: Aaaaaand... it was already on my wishlist, from 1st Aug. I honestly don't remember seeing it though. Maybe it was a demo that caught my eye during one of the next fest seasons.
