About

Thief Town is a local multiplayer-only stealth action game set in a pixel-perfect rendition of the Wild West. Lurk in the crowd, emulate non-player characters, and achieve backstabbing victory.
Up to 4 players control identical avatars (the “Thieves”) in a single-screen arena (the “Town”), also filled with other identical NPCs. Players must identify which NPCs are secretly other players and stab them for points, before being discovered and stabbed themselves!Features:
  • Competitive 2-4 player battles – Blend in with thieves while you search for and stab your opponents
  • Multiple modes and items – Guns, smoke bombs, drunks, sheriffs, sandstorms, and killer tumbleweeds
  • LAN & Local dynamic play – Play on multiple devices over the same Wi-Fi network, or share the same computer with everyone
  • Cross-platform compatibility – Play across any PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android device
  • Use contollers or the keyboard – keyboard support, full 4-player controller support
  • No menus – Thief Town automatically connects players on the same network
Game Modes:
  • Thief Town – The classic backstabbing adventure. Players disguise themselves and stab their buddies in the midst of sandstorms and killer tumbleweeds.
  • Spy Town – Players are given items to trick and trap enemy thieves. Smoke bombs, motion detectors, and teleportation devices... Be careful, they’re one-use only!
  • Drunk Town – One randomly selected player (the "Sheriff") must identify and shoot the other knifeless drunks before running out of bullets.
Don't have enough controllers? Thief Town Controller is also available FOR FREE on iOS/Android devices! Use your smartphones & tablets as extra controllers in the full version of Thief Town!

Our vision for Thief Town focuses on the fundamentals of "couch multiplayer" – frantic fun in the same room as your friends. That's just the experience we want to offer to you, so we have no plans to release single-player or online game modes. Enjoy!

Thief Town reviews and comments

1000/1000 Best Multiplayer Game on a Screen. Genre: Hide & stab + 3 modes (another to follow) + 1 level (day night) (another to follow) Pro & Noob-compatible

Nice little game to play several (No 1 player mode). In the same vein as hidden in plain sight, but in a retro Western vibe, and with some additions, such as scoring system, and some weapons on some sleeves. Nice to play two, very funny to three, and I imagine that at 4 it's even nicer. In short, we have a good time, provided you have friends!

It's fun, especially with 3 or .4 Players. A little too expensive (have paid about 8 Euros) for the slight Variety, but do not regret the Purchase at all. Unfortunately, a bit buggy. To play it with me on the Living room TV (& To have sound) I had to start the Game first and then make the HDMI Connection. Has also crashed 2.3 Times in ~ 4h Game time. From me a Buy recommendation.

Thief town is a game of infiltration and assassination multiplayer thief town is a game that is played only in cooperation, IE with other players around you, either on the same machine or a computer next door. You play an assassin and your goal through the different levels is to eliminate the other players, basically, to be the best Assassin. My two main reproaches for this game are: 1/not to give the possibility to play in multiplayer with other unknown opponents via Internet 2/pixelized graphics... I have the impression that this style of design corresponds more to a way diverted to conceal the absence of a real artist in the Studio. The game is good if you have people next to you to play, there you will have a blast like crazy, otherwise, pass. To discover all my impressions on thief town. [www.graal.fr]

WASTE! This game is literally ruined by a detail! In a few words: here is a friendly local multiplayer game where the goal is to blend into a crowd of NPCS and unmask other players who do the same. Problem: the sensitivity of the controller (Xbox 360) is such that it is impossible to have natural diagonal movements. It is necessary to fumble to look on its analogue mushroom the very precise point that will trigger the diagonal movement. Result: we see NPCs that wander diagonally quietly and others who simply go to the right/left/up/down, and sometimes, painfully, diagonally. As a result, we quickly know who to point the gun to. Impossible to really melt in the crowd, the very essence of the game is ruined. The worst part is that you could say that you just do not use the analog stick, and use the cross. Simple and logical, problem solved. Except it's just not recognized!!! Bravo dev, you ruined your game for a detail!!!
