Hahaha! Yeah, well the typical houses won't have laser systems, only the fancier ones. :p You'll mostly find the laser systems in the art gallery, banks, expensive shops, etc.

All missions do indeed have a time limit, which starts the moment you get inside the building. Some buildings will have security systems which you must disable in a short span of time or else the alarm will sound and the timer will count down at double speed. (just like tripping a laser)

When the timer gets low enough, you will definitely be aware of it. You can hear the police sirens growing louder as they approach the building. (among other clues) If the timer reaches zero, the mission is "over" and Sparrow will surrender immediately. At that point the place is surrounded with police so there is no escape. You *can* escape within the last second however, and still get away. So I'm sure there will be moments of making it out with only a second to spare. (for the greedier thieves)

But if you're looking to get chased, there are missions where security guards will pursue you and attempt to capture you. Smiley

I think the smoke looks fine, but you could probably make it more fitting by scaling it down by 50 % and then scaling it up again, to get more blocky pixels, or something like that. Or just make the smoke more chunky.

Thanks! I sure hope it will be a great game! Smiley

Over the weekend I posted the gameplay gif on reddit and received over 200 upvotes and over 30 comments so I'm pretty happy overall with that. It's the first time I've really shown the game to the "public". (outside of game dev forums)

I'm always apprehensive about hyping the game or posting publicly about it because it's still early-ish in development.

We're currently not 100% sure which area this'll go in - obviously, a sneakin' area - but which one...? ;~)

this sounds pretty good but not like sneaking for me. the beginning parts with the bongos - yeah, but then it speeds up and sounds more like on escape..but overall matches pretty well the thief theme

Konidias, if I reveal there's going to be meticulously animated pixel butt in the game, am I in legal trouble with NDA and such?
If yes, I'm retracting the above statement.
