Kalypso Media and Skilltree Studios will be challenging players with some heist-filled turn-based strategy in the 1970’s when Crookz arrives for PC, Mac and Linux in 2015.
It’s the 1970’s: the era of Funk, flared jeans and disco-fueled Saturday nights. A crack team of expert thieves turn Grand Larceny into an art-form by using their many talents to break into the richest homes and steal the finest jewellery – all to finance their hedonistic lifestyles. That is until a lucrative museum heist in Venice involving a famous jewel known as ‘The Green Tiger’ ends in betrayal and the team broken apart. Five years later the remaining gang members reunite with a plot for revenge against their traitorous former comrade – but naturally, their plan will also make them rich beyond their wildest dreams…
Crookz is a tactical strategy game set in the funky 1970’s with a slick and groovy atmosphere.
