What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Penguin Heist was decided to be Early Access due to the fact that the game is built around its community. We put player feedback near the top of our list when it comes to how we design our game. An Early Access release gives us a chance to get that player feedback during the development process as opposed to after it.

With this feedback we aim to shape Penguin Heist from a fun game to an excellent one.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect it to be in Early Access until Summer 2022, longer if the game sees a lot of support from the community which would mean that we will add even more content.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Early Access is about adding new gameplay features, more maps, more gadets and weapons, and enhance what is already there. We also want to build our own audio system that will allow for procedural sounds and a contextual soundtrack.

Updates come out several times a month, each with it's own unique flair, and each adding new challenges and things to explore. We also have new shop systems in the works, and we want to add a "build your house"-mode where players can build their own social hub to hang out with friends.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently fully playable with multiple maps/heists available and lots of gadgets and weapons. There may be a few bugs in the game, but since every Early Access release is thoroughly tested beforehand, you shouldn't expect any game breaking bugs.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We do not intend on raising the price during Early Access, but we may do an increase once the full version is released if the total number of new features warrants it.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have a Discord and a subreddit where we encourage players to actively participate. There you can make suggestions, report bugs, and discuss features with the developers. Throughout the process we will involve the community in finding out what new content is desired the most.

You can join the subreddit here: http://www.reddit.com/r/penguinheist/, and you can join our Discord server here: http://discord.com/invite/erAQVkqPtQ.”

About This Game

The Greatest Penguin Heist of All Time is the one and only 4 player CO-OP physics-based heist game featuring a bunch of kleptomanic penguins. You'll experience a blend of physics-based platforming with stealth and strategy, with full freedom to achieve the missions in your own way.

About

Being inspired by old school stealth and heist games, Penguin Heist aims to breathe new life into the genre with a modern physics engine along with multiplayer. You pick your mission, your loadout, and you set out to find and steal whatever needs to be stolen. Use your tools, weapons, and wit to infiltrate, steal, and exfiltrate as well as you can. Unlock new items by completing challenges and race against the clock to become the best penguin heist team ever.

No matter what level of expertise you are on, Penguin Heist will offer a challenge for everyone.

Features

  • Online CO-OP with up to 4 people playing together
  • Full character customization and unlockables
  • Non-linear gameplay allowing for endless replayability
  • Wacky physics-based interactions
  • Custom item loadouts with tons of items and weapons to pick from
  • Varied maps with different hazards, paths, and potential strategies
  • Realistic penguin nooting

The Heists

Penguin Heist features a variety of heist locations that all have their unique flair. One heist will have you stealing boats full of fish, another might have you stealing valuable works of art, and yet another may require you to kidnap an prized chef. However, it is the job of a penguin to figure out the way that they want to execute their heist. Loud or silent, lethal or non-lethal - there is no right answer... there is only the way you play!

The Base

To support all your heists you are provided with a base that exists in the most remote parts of Antarctica. In your base you have the possibility to construct new buildings, purchase new weapons and items for your heists, and find the perfect looking outfit for your penguin.

Tactics

Just like old-school games you are required plan your heist with your team and choose the right loadouts and approach. This means you will have a lot of freedom to choose your approach from conventional to crazy.
