What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our original plan was to release the full version 1 of our first indie game, with a development time of 7 months.

After a discussion with a publisher and a funder, we decided that we would be better off releasing a paid early access version of the game. This will be the full version technically, but without all of the content / levels.

This means that we don't have release a rushed version of our game, and we can use the early access version to give stats to a publisher to help convince them to invest in developing our ideal version of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have projected a timeline of 8 additional months to create the content for our ideal full version of Crooks Like Us.”

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

“The main difference is content.

We plan to have more multiplayer levels, and more single player challenges.

We also plan to have enhanced character design and customisation.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Check out the "About This" section for details of the current state of the game.”

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

“We will be pricing the initial early access version at 50% / half price.

We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features”

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

“We plan to take onboard community suggestions and feedback, as we currently do with our beta version and testers.

We will be encouraging users to post suggestions on the Steam forums, as well as on our Discord #ideas-and-suggestions channel at https://discord.gg/RcbyFBZ3”

About This Game


This 1-8 player party game drops players into riotous robbery scenarios where the goal is to collect as many valuables as possible and get back to the escape van before time runs out.

Pick up loot and load it into the van to make money. Play smart by balancing many items at once for much bigger score multipliers. However, the higher a stack gets, the more wobbly and difficult to control it becomes.


Rival crooks are out to ruin your plans and will hit you with items or dash into you, sending your stack sprawling around the room.

If that’s not enough, each player also has the option to jump into the van at any point and make use of various gadgets such as dropping anvils, making earthquakes, spinning doors, placing banana skins, causing power cuts and lots more.

Watch out for the guards too. They will cause you to drop your stack if they catch you.


The Vault opens with 30 seconds to go in each level, providing access to a special item that is worth a potentially game-changing amount of points.


Solve mini environmental puzzles in each level to get access to a one-off bonus safe. Then break it open by throwing it about to release the valuable item inside.


Steal everything except the walls in various themed levels: a Jewellery Store, an Ancient Temple, a Lost Mine, a Speedy Highway, and an Underwater Paradise.

A range of different game modes provide new ways to play for hours of fun:
  • Free for all - grab as many items as possible before the timer runs out
  • Last Crook Standing - knock down the other crooks by dashing and throwing items
  • Teams - work in teams to grab the most items
  • First to 25k - the first Crook to earn 25k wins
  • Stack race - the first Crook to stack 10 items at once wins
  • Stack the logo - stack pieces of the Crooks Like Us logo in the right order to score


Customisation options are available: Change your hairstyle and colour, or choose to wear a funny headpiece to make your Crook stand out from the crowd.
