when you say a heist game you immediately think of Payday. A game that requires precision and teamwork in order to extract the goods. Enter the Filthy Animals crew and that is not the case! Using the movement model from Gang Beasts and Human Fall Flat you instantly know that it’s not going to be straightforward, Now you have to drunkenly run around and eat tacos whilst trying to steal loaf goods. Going for a bit more in-depth control, You don’t just pick up something instead, you have to lean down or stretch up in order to reach and grab items, It’s a fucking nightmare at first and feels stupid but its a layer of the game that honestly adds to what it’s going for. The levels are varied and full of hazards like locked doors, spilled milk, and angry customers but it is very small and with a crew of four it does get so chaotic that it becomes painful but you will still laugh even if deep down you are rage crying. Solo play is not that fun and I don’t think is a really good way to play the game but it is a good way to learn the ropes and level layout online really opens it up and makes a lot of the annoying niggles fade. Overall it has a few missteps but the idea is sound and it is one to keep an eye on.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
