Steam Launch THIS WEEK! (12/4)
We've Just Been Greenlit!
Thief Town is Coming to Steam!

Thanks to everyone who voted, Thief Town is now cleared for a release on Steam. We are super excited to bring the game here.

Launch Date?

Currently, there is no planned launch date, aside from a tentative "maybe a month from now". This is because there are a lot of assets involved in a Steam release- trading cards, badges, profile backgrounds, etc. We will also be implementing achievement support for the game, which due to some compatibility issues between Thief Town (Java) and the Steam SDK (C++) is actually quite involved. We want the Steam release to be as polished as possible, and to have these aforemented features, so until these are mostly finished, it's hard to nail down an exact date.

Will My Desura/Humble Keys Transfer Over to Steam?

Of course. If for whatever reason your key doesn't automatically let you grab the Steam version (Humble supports this by default and Desura will once it is released), send me an email with some sort of proof of purchase and I'll give you a Steam key.

Future Plans

As mentioned in previous announcements, we do have a game update planned. This most likely will go live a few months after the Steam release, and will be a free update to every version of the game (Desura, Humble, Steam, etc).

Again, thanks for voting for us everyone! I'll post an update as soon as we know when we are going to launch.


Release date: Q3 2014
Thief Town is a 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”), which is 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!

  • 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.

That’s not all! Thief Town is also coming to iOS and Android devices, with full cross-compatibility! Connect a gaming PC, iPad, Macbook, and smartphone together to battle for platform supremacy!

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.
