Get Your Design in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

How would you like to see your design become part of a real video game?

Well, now you can, thanks to the Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time competition that will start today, Friday April 20th.

Take a look at this video from Sanzaru’s CEO Glen Egan talking about the competition:

Exciting isn’t it?

So just to recap: Sly is a sneaky raccoon descendant of a long line of master thieves. In this brand new adventure, he embarks on a mischievous journey with his loyal friends Murray and Bentley.

Here’s a short trailer, just to give you an idea of the mayhem that awaits you…

During his mission, packed with epic boss battles, dangerous missions and stealthy moves, he will find some precious treasures scattered around. A treasure can be practically anything; from a lamp to a teapot to a precious ring… you name it!

And now we want YOU to free your imagination and create something that you think Sly might want to steal during his mission – and bring back to his hideout. Remember, as Glen said: no living animals, no weapons (Sly is a pacifist thief, after all) and preferably an object that can be carried on your shoulders.

The mechanic is very simple: draw an object you think could be a great in-game treasure. You can use any computer programme (Photoshop, or good old Paint), or simply paper and pencil (you’ll have to take a picture or scan it, in this case). Then, upload your creation here:  together with a short description of what that item is.

You don’t have to be Picasso! Just draw something simple and original, and use the description to explain clearly what you want it to be.

The best design from each country will be picked by Sanzaru and will win a PS Vita and a 16BG Memory Card. But that’s not all! The winners will also gain access to the second round of the competition – among all local winners, Sanzaru will pick EIGHT final winners that will see their designs transformed into real in-game treasures!

This means that, once the game is out this Autumn, you’ll get the chance to steal your own treasure.

What are you waiting for?

Head over to: and submit your treasure!
