Turku-based game studio Rival Games partnered with entertainment company Skybound Entertainment from LA, California to bring on the new video game based on the popular Robert Kirkman’s comic book series Thief of Thieves.
Thief of Thieves the comic book series follows Conrad Paulson, in his secret double life as master thief Redmond. There is nothing he can’t steal, nothing he can’t have…except the life he left behind. As he tries to piece together what’s left of his life before the FBI finally catches up to him, he realizes they are the least of his worries.
“Comics have always been close to our heart here at the studio, and Thief of Thieves obviously resonates with the team as a crime story” told Jukka Laakso, the CEO of Rival Games. “Our cooperation with Skybound has been fruitful from the start, and we’ve been enjoying some great input from their creative team.”
