About This Game​

A crime comedy that shines with hours of fun, unforeseen twists, dozens of puzzles, black humor and witty dialogues with quirky characters in the wonderful world of the 80s.
England 1987 in a big city. Unemployed Matt desperately needs money. So far, he has been virtuous and never run afoul of the law. But suddenly his petty criminal fatherly friend “Uncle“ Briggs offers him a promising job.
Briggs's hatched an elaborate plan to rid himself of all financial worries once and for all. He needs your help to steal the world famous Arctic Star brilliant from well guarded Trustman Bank.
You play as Matt. Take photos of the construction plans, scout out the bank, uncover the weak spots and find a way in. Help Uncle Briggs with further planning and preparation, get the equipment, hire a team and beware of the police.

Both Thimbleweed Park and this game are awkward attempts at imitating the artstyle of Maniac Mansion, even though Lucasfilm Games itself quickly altered and improved its style. Can't take these games seriously with the oversized heads.

Personally I can't take seriously all of the modern 3rd person adventures, but as taxalot stated, we'll need something to play at some point.
