The debut trailer for turn-based heist-’em-up Crookz has an unlikely guest in the form of hirsute porn star Ron Jeremy.
Crookz is a tactical strategy game set in the funkadelic 70s, in which you organise a gang of misfits and help them plan and execute heists. You’ll have to employ stealth, cunning, and equipment ranging from chloroform to camera jammers in order to get in, get the loot, and get out, and each team member has his or her own unique skills that will also aid you.
It’s got a full 20-mission campaign based around the betrayal of your gang after a successful heist, and then their pursuit of revenge five years on. You’ll be able to create and share challenges with other players, and… oh, you’re just interested in Ron Jeremy, aren’t you?
The trailer, however, is a live-action affair charting four wannabe burglars as they plan out and execute their robbery of… Ron Jeremy. Or possibly Ron Jeremy playing someone else; his identity isn’t really a focus of the piece.
Crookz is being developed by Skilltree Studios, and is due out in 2015. You can have a gander at some screenshots (and the trailer) below.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
