While I rob darkish dungeons and splendid castles, in my free time, I usually take into consideration how straightforward it might be with a pleasant ghost to assist me out. Spirited Thief lets you play out that fantasy in a sequence of top-down, turn-based, stealthy heists. Better but, it’s sneaking onto PC this summer time and has a demo accessible now.
Spirited Thief’s heists are break up into two halves. First up is the recon, because the spirit Trin floats via the extent scouting enemy positions, recognizing traps, and most significantly, finding the treasure. Next is the execution with Elaj the thief, and also you’ll want to make use of the whole lot you’ve realized to efficiently seize the treasure and get out. It’s a setup I’ve by no means thought of earlier than, however enacting a well-thought plan sounds prefer it might be very satisfying.
The trailer exhibits off among the shenanigans you’ll be able to pull because the duo. Trin can transfer via partitions, distract guards, and seemingly body-swap with enemies, leaping from one thoughts to the following. On the opposite hand, Elaj must sneak previous guards, keep away from their line of sight and follow cowl, all whereas taking turns to maneuver with foes. Although, Elaj nonetheless has entry to chill strikes like invisibility, and you’ll unlock extra with the expensive jewels you steal. It considerably jogs my memory of Arkane’s immersive sims. Levels you’ll be able to transfer via in a wide range of methods, covert supernatural talents, and messing with unassuming guards? Check, verify, and verify.
One-man dev Koi Snowman Games partnered with Ishtar Games to publish Spirited Thief, and I’ll undoubtedly have my eye on this when it launches on Steam this summer time. You can take a look at the demo proper now, too.
