The Castle Doctrine is a massively-multiplayer game about burglary and home defence by Jason Rohrer. The website is a bit odd using one of the old "start pages" from the 90's where you click an image to go to the actual website, on the website...eh?
It's 1991, and things are bad. You're a guy with a wife, two kids, and a house. You're nearly broke, but you know that they'll be coming soon for what you've got left, hundreds of them.
Enter The Castle Doctrine a rather unusual little title where you secure a house and then attempt to burgle other people's.
Available on Linux with the source code:
- Early access alpha testing
- Lifetime server account
- All future updates
- Tech support included
All for $8 currently as it's in Alpha, I've tested it myself and it's quite intriguing and doesn't give you many instructions at all, so it's a play and learn kind of game.
I couldn't find an official video so here is one on youtube (seriously game developers, please make official videos!).
