The manipulator

You are a psychic freak in a world that doesn’t like you very much! You must use your powers to escape from a military base patrolled by heavily armed guards. You can control their minds or, if you’re feeling nasty, cause their heads to pop.

In a nutshell that’s the theme and plot of this simple platformer game with a twist from Virtanen games

The graphics are extremely simple, but it’s a fun game with unexpected depth (For example, after the first few levels you can read the guard’s minds and discover their personal secrets)


Trilby, the art of theft

From the well known games critic and comedian Ben “Yathzee” Croshaw comes this “mission-based stealth platformer”

A game critic that puts his money where his mouth is and actually makes games? Our hats are off to you, Mr. Croshaw. Let’s hear more

“with an emphasis on gameplay over story. Your goal is to infiltrate a variety of buildings in Chapow City, steal loot, achieve objectives and get out again with the subtlety of a flickering shadow in a ninja outfit.”

Sounds good!


The Story

1991. Two years before the events of 5 Days A Stranger. The eccentric British cat burglar Trilby is at large in an American city, robbing the rich to give to himself. Distrustful of his fellow man and patiently skilled in every aspect of burglary, Trilby is on an ongoing quest to scare the ignorant rich by hitting them where it hurts – their wallets. But will his arrogance cause him to bite off more than he can chew?

The Game

In The Art Of Theft, the player controls Trilby in a 2D stealth adventure as he embarks upon a number of daring high-profile heists in various outposts of wealth and power across Chapow City. With an arsenal of thief skills at his disposal, he must lift the trinkets and valuables of the idle rich while making as little fuss as possible.
