Card Thief: Can This Card Game Steal Hearts Too?
Hot on the heels of Indy Game week That Apple had, Card Thief puts you in the shoes of an anthromophoric Magpie that steals from the rich and presumably does not give to the poor. Gameplay is rather hard to explain but I ill try my best.
You are the Magpie, and you need to move over each card, careful to not interact with guards unless they are not facing you or unless they are not under a torch. when you move over a torch, it extuinguishes and you move on. Once a torch is extinguished, it alerts the guards who then actively search for you. The object of the game, is to get through half of the deck safely to reveal the treasure. Get the treasure and safely get through the rest of the card deck until the door card pops up. Then get out of there. You cancel out the cards just by moving over them.
I posted a short video of me playing so you can see how the gameplay mechanics work. Over all, I feel this game is for the people who think moves ahead, as in chess players but this game and it's art style did steal my heart as well as my time.
