“Their newly revealed light-footed mouse-controlled theft game… demonstrates that there is still the capacity for innovation in the stealth genre.” The Guardian (Will Freeman)
“If you're a fan of the genre, you'd be remiss not to give it a try — it features a lot of classical stealth mechanics, all of which intertwine to create a surprisingly tense, challenging experience.” Polygon (Griffin McElroy)
“Well worth a look if you’ve ever dreamed of not only being a master thief, but doing so in the kind of style that is only possible after hitting some high-end boutiques for a formal suit and flagrantly stylish new hat” Rock Paper Shotgun (Laura Kate Dale)
Hold the front page: a once magnificent art collection left behind by a kindly benefactor has been unscrupulously poached and split up among private collectors around London! Enter Sophia Take, the rightful heir to the misappropriated masterpieces and, now, a would-be cat burglar to boot!
To reclaim her inheritance, players must help Sophia embark on an exciting and daring heist adventure packed with fast-paced thieving action. Armed only with a talent for misdirection and the friendship of two like-minded portrait purloiners, she sets out to steal back what was once hers…
Packed with thought-proving dilemmas and high-security measures, The Marvellous Miss Take turns the stealth genre on its head by using organised chaos to keep players on their toes. Successfully pilfering portraits isn’t as easy as it may seem: wandering guards decide their patrol routes on the fly, security cameras keep watch over everything and even innocent gallery goers just visiting to admire the art might raise the alarm if they see something suspicious. Only by using quick wits and even quicker reflexes can players hope to grab the loot and escape unseen – there’s no option for violence and the clock ticking!
Organised Chaos – More than your typical stealth game, The Marvellous Miss Take is a fluid, high-speed game of cat and mouse! Random guard patterns require players to think on their feet rather than hiding in the shadows, and one false move means escape can be snatched away from you in seconds.
Wits, Not Fists – Forget violence, takedowns or picking off guards one by one… distraction's the key to success here! Each stage stays tense from the first step to the last, so put your gadgets to good use to keep out of trouble and pilfer everything you can before someone spots you!
The Bigger Picture – Sneak into the 25 multi-floored galleries as one of three different characters, each of which has their own unique skills and goals. Can you escape safely with the maximum amount of loot and grab yourself a perfect ranking?
Artfully Accessible – Streamlined, intuitive mouse controls let you explore the colourful world of The Marvellous Miss Take with ease, making the exciting puzzle-cum-stealth action accessible to players of all ages and skills.
The Perfect Plan – Enjoy a funny, engaging story written by BAFTA winner James Leach that unfolds as you steal back more of your inheritance!
