Skybound Entertainment and Finnish independent game studio Rival Games have
partnered to bring Robert Kirkman’s comic book series Thief of Thieves into the
gaming world with a new interactive game based off of the comic. The game will
be demoed for the first time ever on Steam at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2017
and will be available on Steam in early 2018.
Thief of Thieves will follow Celia, the protégé of Kirkman’s comic book
protagonist Conrad Paulson, the legendary thief known as Redmond, during her
apprentice years. While the comic book series introduces Celia in a flashback,
the game will detail how Celia became an accomplished thief of her own.
“We’re excited to broaden Robert Kirkman’s world with a mix of characters from
the original plot and fresh faces” said President of Skybound Interactive Dan
Murray. “Rival Games has created an excellent expansion of the original
storyline and we can’t wait to share it with our fans.”
Skybound Interactive and Rival Games unveiled the first-ever teaser for the game
today, which can be viewed HERE. The game will be available to play at San Diego
Comic Con, in the Future US booth (booth #241) which has been created through a
partnership with Skybound, PC Gamer, Dell Gaming, and Future where a handful of
Skybound’s interactive games will be available to play on PC consoles. A special

"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 start, and we've been enjoying some great input from their creative team."
