Heist Game Forever In The Making Looks Spectacular

Heist Game Forever In The Making Looks Spectacular

Later this week, the indie game Fez will be released, and so we’ll need to give some new game to title of Coolest-Looking-Indie-We-Can’t-All-Play-Yet. Which game deserves it? Spy Party? The Witness?

I submit that Monaco, the co-op heist game from Andy Schatz, is the game for this throne. The video here makes the argument.

Monaco has evolved significantly since I first saw it in 2010. (It was so… blocky back then!) It’s been shown at multiple Penny Arcade Expos. It’s been winning awards. It’s set for release some time this year on PC, Mac and at least one unspecified console.

And so we wait…

Release this game, Andy Schatz! (Please?)

Andy gave us a demo of the newest build this past weekend at PAX East. We took a video of it. Enjoy!


  • When I saw the thumbnail photo for this article on the main page, I thought that was the silhouette of a rabbit against the map and thought “WHOA a heist game with a RABBIT? This sounds COOL”.

  • heh heh. I’m never following again from development again. Waiting over 2 years for this has been torture! Hope it lives up to expectations when its released this year… lets hope for Q3. 😀
