A downloadable game for Windows

Demo version of the indie-game: A House of Thieves, a level-based stealth comedy-horror game about a Thief who doesn't go shopping but instead takes his shopping list and breaks into random houses to get his things.


Imagine you want to cook some Pasta but you run out of Tomato Sauce. You are also not the kind of person who goes to a supermarket and pays for their groceries. What do you do?
Correct! Break into your neighbor's house and work through your shopping list!

PC version (mouse and keyboard) of the popular indie VR game There is a Thief in my House.

Excellent replayability

  • Items on your list are chosen at random
  • Items change their location every time you repeat a level

Localized

  • Complete game: English, German, French, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Turkish, Portuguese from Brazil
  • Part of the game (only list): Russian, Korean

Accessibility

  • Enable subtitles (for the deaf / hard of hearing)

You also need Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2019 (2017 & 2015) for the game to work without crashes. Most PCs already have it installed.

Thief shopping simulator :D

Yep, that sums up the game :D

(+1)

Really liked it! Could definitely use some fine tuning but I understand the nature of a demo and for sure want to check out the full release. Really walks a line between being funny and me jumping every time I was caught haha.

Thank you for giving it a try! I'm always working on new features and adjustments that will make the game better. It's fun to see your reaction to certain events (like the homeowner jumping out the window).

(+1)

Cool concept, reminded me of Hello Neighbor.

Thanks. Yes, there are some similarities.

(+1)

I loved the game, just wanna say that I had a lot of fun playing even though there were some things that needs some adjustment but still thanks for making this game

I am glad you enjoyed it! I update the game every few days with new features and bug fixes.

(+2)

I had a lot of fun playing this game!

Thank you for playing the game! The video was very entertaining. By the way, it's pronounced "cookie".

Is Korean supported as well?

(1 edit)

Yes, the game is partially supported in Korean. The list (the most important object in the game) is fully translated into Korean. Other things like the menu/settings page are not translated into Korean.

First I steal their coffee pot, then I steal their hearts
I enjoyed this quite a bit! Looking forward to the release

Hi! I noticed your stream on Twitch a few weeks ago. I am glad you enjoyed the game.

(+1)

In a house filled with luxury items, at least the thief stayed humble and only stole groceries :') I really enjoyed playing this demo, it was super fun! It only took me a long time to realise the items were not where they would normally be! I found it fairly easy to escape in the chase but also thankful for it otherwise I would have lost many times :') Looking forward to full release, great work! Game play is below if interested :)

Hey! Thank you for trying the game out. I noticed that you recorded the video a few weeks ago? Or you've played version 1 of the demo which is a few weeks old. Interesting to see how much has changed in the past few weeks. Your version of the game was a bit buggy and you only had two options to enter the house.

(+1)

Ahhh! Yeah I downloaded and played the game a few weeks back so any changes that have been made clearly I have not seen. Still had super fun time playing tho! :) I'll check out the updated version and give it a play :)

(+1)

I’m basically the worst thief ever lol 😂 but hey I had fun STEALING CHEESE 🧀 😆 

Thank you for checking the game out! 14 minutes is not that bad. At least you got out with all of your stuff.

Don't steal kids 👨🏾☑

Nice video! Thanks for playing the game.

Thank you for checking the game out!

Nice video! I am washing my mouth with Jack Daniels too :D

(+1)

Ah yes. A gentlemen too i see.

(+2)

This was an absolute joy to play. Enjoyed as much as I could 100/100

Thank you for your kind words and the video.

Hi,
I really just want to say that i really enjoy this game, a linux build would be really cool as some textures and models don't work with WINE, overally it's fun and cool game 😅

Hi, thank you for trying the game out! I will look into it and try to do a Linux build, not sure if I can actually get it to work.

(+1)

This was a very fun and challenging game to play.

Running from the owners was hard and yet fun at the same time.

I had a great time playing this, thank you for making this.

I cant wait to see what else you do with it.Great job.

Thanks for playing the game! Your video was entertaining to watch.

(+1)

thanx mate, I was actually suprised by the bear traps

And had a real good time playing it.

(+1)

This is some of the most fun I've had playing an indie game. Also, I didn't know this was a horror game... got jump scared so many times LOL

I absolutely love this game, and I hope it grows even more because it deserves to thrive. Amazing work.

That's great to hear! You put a lot of effort into editing your video. It was really fun to watch! Thank you :)

(+1)

Thanks for the kind words! Looking forward to seeing more from you!

This game is so fun! It scared me too! I also saw Ninja on the streets. What an experience! I cannot wait for the full version of this!

(+1)

That's nice to hear! Thank you :D

(+1)

El juego es fresco

¡Gracias!

(+1)

The game is cool
But the gameover screen is fucking scary

(+1)

Yeah, that was intended :D

(1 edit) (+1)

Congrats! I enjoyed a lot playing this game. I played various times only to record this gameplay with perfection. Very fun!

Thank you! That's nice to hear.

(+1)

Hello! just curious how scary this is, as i can't take actual horror games, is it just like scary like someones looking for you or actual monsters and whatever. Only asking this cause i saw you said it"s horror but the picture on front isn't very scary

(1 edit) (+1)

It's not like an actual horror game. There are no monsters or creepy jumpscares / disturbing pictures. Still, it is a tense game and you might be taken by surprise (e.g. if the homeowner suddenly walks up to you). As you described it: someone is looking for you.
You can see in the gameplay videos in the comments below that other players were scared or nervous at first, but the more they played and learned, the less anxious they got. Others weren't afraid at all.

(1 edit)

I've updated the demo (zip file) with new content and some bug fixes. If you've had problems before, download the new update. I will definitely be updating the demo again in the next few days (adding a new language and polishing it up a bit). You can now break windows and climb through them:

(+1)(-1)

I gave it a Let's Play, though, I will be one to give critique and say, there is nothing that separates this game from the many many others who made 'thief-related games', there is nothing unique about it, it needs its own unique thing going for it, and a lot more polish than what is shown in the demo

(+1)

Thank you for your video and honest critique. I wrote some things down while watching your video and already fixed some bugs.

(+1)

Is this gonna be free? I'm falling in love with this, but I'm looking for the price of the January 21th version in Steam

Hey, that's great to hear! The planned price is $11.99 / €11.39 / £10.59

(1 edit) (+1)

Awasome dude, That's gonna be the first game I buy

man really said january 21th

(+1)

This had absolutely no right in being as stressful as it was!! I absolutely loved every second of it though!!

Thanks for playing! You did pretty well, you finished the level and that's all that matters :)

(+1)

I was happy with that, my relief at finding that damned toothpaste trumped my disappointment in getting 0 stars, haha

Thank you for all of your videos. I've seen them all and made a whole list of things I want to update, add, or change. Each of you made the game better.

(+1)

This game frustrated me so much, I love it. I ran in to the house owner way to many times. excited for the full release!

Thanks for playing the game! It was fun to watch your video. 

(+1)

Amazing and funny game dev :D 

Thanks for playing the game and making a video about it! I noticed you tried to break the window (at 1:07). That's actually a nice idea. I'm going to try to implement that you can distract the owner by breaking a window (or maybe even allowing yourself to climb through it).

(+1)

Thank you i'm happy that video helped it for making improvement i'm excited for the steam version too thank you for your effort making a great game :) 

(+1)

Fun game! Would love some more tools to help me succeed, but still a wonderful time!

(+1)

I had a lot of fun watching you getting freaked out. Thank you for your video!

SO FUN

Hi :) Thank you for playing the game!
