Heist is a noir cat burglar game, in which you use non-lethal tools to 'get in' 'get it' & 'get out'. This makes Heist a very pure stealth game, player must rely on avoiding and evading instead of direct confrontation. Set squarely in the age of smooth jazz and organized crime, players will pursue infamy as a lone cat-burglar on the prowl for wealth, and continued freedom. Each step you take brings you closer to your prize, but also within inches of capture. Each level will allow an open ended approach for your style of play - A stealthy rogue, rewarded for treading softly and planning a route unseen through shadowy corridors; a cunning wielder of subterfuge who discretely sets traps to cause misery and distraction - or a hit-and-run professional whose success lies in causing chaos.
The concept of Heist was initally conceived after the Team's designer; Travers Dunkinson; finished playing Dishonored and was craving a stealth experience where the act of killing was removed from the player's list of verbs. Heist began development in 2013, but the project was scrapped and started anew in 2014 due to the rocky development in the previous year. Heist saw brief public exposure in 2013 where the team showed Heist at PAX Aus 2013 and PAX Prime later that same year. The tight deadlines and rushed work for the shows was part of the reason Heist was restarted. Launching a now successful Greenlight campaign, Heist was meet with extraordinary positivity, reaching the top 100 list of greenlight within its first day, and making it to the number 2 posistion before being Greenlit. In 2016, Heist was selected to be one of 9 games to be funded by Film Victoria.
