Backstabbing Wild-West party game Thief Town coming soon to PS4

Clever multiplayer madness from Glass Knuckle Games

You may be asking yourself, “Thief Town? What’s that?” Well, it’s only the latest in multiplayer thief-related action, with graphics that look so real! Now, you may be screaming, “Wow! So cool!”

Thief Town is a local multiplayer stealth party game for two to four players, coming soon exclusively to PS4. Stab your buddies in a pixel-perfect rendition of the Wild West. Yee-haw!

You and your friends play as the thieves, who need to sneak around the town to try and stab the other players. The only problem is, every player looks exactly alike. Not only that, but the town is also filled with identical-looking computer-controlled thieves. You’ve got to disguise yourself in the crowd while figuring out which thieves are actually your friends. Once you find ’em, stab ’em! Get points and win the game!

You can’t just go around stabbing everyone in Thief Town. You’ll only get points by stabbing the other players. If you stab an NPC, the only thing you’ll do is reveal yourself! So be sneaky and make that first stab count, because that harmless Thief behind you might just be another player…

Lurk in the crowd, emulate non-player characters, and achieve backstabbing victory. These are the laws that Thief Town was founded upon.

The game mode we just described is appropriately called “Thief Town,” a standard round where you hide in the crowd and stab your friends for points. The full package comes with three game modes, two arenas, tons of items, and PS4 bonus features!

Spy Town gives players items to trick and trap enemy Thieves before going in for the kill. Use smoke bombs, motion detectors, and teleportation devices to gain an advantage… but be careful, they’re one-use only!

Drunk Town is a 1v3 round where one player becomes “The Sheriff,” whose job is to sniff out and shoot those pesky Thieves with his pistol. Too bad the Thieves don’t have their knives this time — they’ll just have to behave until time or the Sheriff’s bullets run out!

Thief Town also has two Towns: the Wild West and Spooky Town. Giant, killer tumbleweeds and camouflaging sand storms ravage the Wild West, while Spooky Town’s creepy statues and lightning storms help to reveal the location of players.

We’ve also included a number of awesome PS4-exclusive features. Stab your touchpad with your finger to stab your friend in the game! Customise your Thief with 256 potential names, like “Cross-Circle-Square-Square”, or “Triangle-Triangle-Cross-Triangle”! We’ve also hidden some secret screen filters in “The Saloon,” our game’s interactive menu…

If you’ve enjoyed local multiplayer games like Sportsfriends or Towerfall: Ascension, we invite you to further sharpen your social skills with Thief Town. The team at Glass Knuckle Games has been working really hard to ensure that couch multiplayer remains alive and well, so be sure to grab Thief Town if your parties are lacking some healthy, sneaky competition.

  • Looks like a PS+ title that I wouldn’t bother downloading despite receiving it for free.

    • I hope not, I will not talk about the game, since its a matter of taste, but multiplayer only games should never be on PS Plus.

    • @Rochala Why not? While you can argue it has a singleplayer component, Rocket League is a sucessful ps+ title that people enjoy. Killing Floor 2 is multiplayer game that i would love that it was a ps+ title (gonna buy it anyway) and if Chivalry Medieval Warfare was ported to ps4 i could see it benefit of being a ps+ game.

      Now, local coop i have to agree, kind of a waste when you can’t gather some friends at your place and it would be easier (and reach a bigger audience) if it was online multiplayer.

      On a side note, funny how the US version of the playstation blog comments is the reverse of the european one, here most people complain and there they’re actually happy (in relation to indie titles and the ps+).

  • Actually looks like a lot of fun (i like backstabbing in games) but I have no local gaming friends. I need online. :/

  • Wow more games my master system could run lol just what I brought a ps4 for.

  • PLays like “Hidden in plain sight” on X360 and Steam, but uglier.
    Also “Hidden in plain sight” had more and better modes.
    This game is just plain ugly!

  • Hmmm sounds interesting. Definitely excited to try it out and see how it plays.

  • This looks great! Can’t wait to play. Please keep the coach multiplayer going!

  • I’m at a total loss for words right now….. most indie games that have been announced lately look terrible and are a sure waste of harddrive space on the PS4, but this one really tops them all. Can it get any worse? Com’on Sony, out of the thousands of indie games being announced right now, we get this? Stop being so cruel to us and pursue something way better please!

  • graphics that look real youve got to be joking and im thinking wow games like this is the reason i got a ps4 NOT
    if i were into these cheap tacky games i wouldnt of bothered getting a ps4 i would still have a ps one

  • I too, like most here, I’m completely fed up of playing spectrum zx81 games on my 2015 top of the range home gaming equipment.

    Month after month we get this type of rubbish.

    When are we going to hit the stride like PS Plus was ON PS3, where we got a decent game to play.

  • Glad I’m not the only one who is fed up with these types of games.

  • Another pixel art game original :-( :-(
