What you need to know

  • Heist Simulator is a simulation/puzzle game where you get to create your own heists.
  • It will be coming soon to PC, Stadia, and consoles at an unspecific date at this time.

Ever wanted to re-enact your favorite heist movies? Look no further than Heist Simulator. This is a simulation puzzle game published by No More Robots and developed by RogueCode and SkyBagel. In this game, you get to create extravagant locales filled with England's most valuable treasures and artifacts and install all sorts of defense systems and guards to protect them from thieves.

Once your personal Fort Knox is complete, you can test your level's defenses by sending a team of the world's finest thieves and hackers to sneak or break through them to steal the goods. If you feel your fortress is ready for the public, you can upload your level onto the HeistCloud and challenge people online to come and try to take your priceless memorabilia.

As you can see, you won't need a high-end PC setup to run this game. However, I would still recommend getting one of the best gaming laptops on the market, if you wish to execute your heists with the most optimal graphical performance.

Heist Simulator will be coming soon to PC, Stadia, and home consoles, but no specific release date has been given at this time. However, if you want to play the game early, the developers are hosting a playtest for the game right now, where you can play a few levels and try out the level editor. You can find the full details on playtest on the game's Steam page.

This is a fascinating concept, to be sure, and I'm interested to see how it plays out when it releases. If this heist goes well, it could end up being one of the best games on PC.
