Thieves, urchins, and murder ballads: Antihero at PAX Prime
Screenhots, video, and PAX EAST!
Release date: Early 2016
Antihero is a fast-paced 4X strategy game with an (Oliver) Twist.

- Operate a Thieves' Guild in the heart of a gas-lit Dickensian city overrun by corruption, vice, and greed
- "Civilization" meets "Hero Academy" gameplay
- Scout territory to determine what your foes are planning
- Hire street urchins and train them in the finer points of thievery and skulduggery
- Infiltrate banks, factories, and other powerful institutions.
- Steal resources to upgrade your Guild and buy powerful tools of the trade for your Master Thief
- Multiple paths to victory. Choose a non-violent route, using blackmail against the corrupt forces that run the city; or use more... "direct" methods against your foes and rent yourself out as an assassin, accepting contracts from the mysterious stranger who appears near your Thieves' Guild

Play through the single-player story-driven campaign, or take on rival guilds in the game's cross-platform asynchronous multiplayer mode.

Antihero has been in development for about two years, and our small team of two is working full-time on it. We hope to have an Early Access release in early 2016, with a 1.0 following within a couple months of Early Access.

No demo yet - there's still a lot to do on the game - but I suggest chanting "Antihero... Antihero..." over and over to yourself every night as you fall asleep.

Also, you should totally add yourself to the announcement mailing list at -- we'll use that list to let interested parties know when the game goes live!

Looks intriguing!
Is there a demo anywhere I can play, to ingrain this into my memory?
The alternative is passing into obscurity..
