v1.1.8: Bug fixes!!



I'm not dead!!!

I'm sorry it's been so long since an update! Releasing the game on the PS4 involved splitting the codebase into completely separate pieces and it's become pretty intimidating to maintain. I've been meaning to address some bug reports in the forums for quite some time, and finally this weekend I was able to set the game environment up and work on it again:

CHANGELOG v1.1.8
  • Allow every thief to be controlled via the mobile app
  • Fix XBox gamepad POV not registering
  • Potential fix for some users being unable to use their gamepad axes
  • Support going fullscreen on other monitors (just drag the window)
  • Support controller hotplugging
  • Keep names the same even when players join out of order
  • Potential fix for "cannot start JVM" crash
  • Don't add first player by default at startup; instead require input to determine what controls them
  • Fix bug causing game to leave room code network thread running when exiting sometimes
  • Fix some frame rate variances
  • Increase window size default to 1920 x 1080
  • Default to windowed mode
  • Maximize windowed mode by default
  • Always show mouse cursor & allow it to go through title screen
  • Disable lan play by default every startup
  • Reduce flicker intensity
  • Default to spy town (I mean seriously, it's the best mode)
  • New tips...!?

Unfortunately, I had to drop support for Steam achievements on Linux in this update. It's a bit of a complicated problem and I'm working on a fix as we speak, but I really wanted to release this update before the end of the weekend.

So, thanks for playing! Make sure to take a gander at our other games.

About This Game

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!
