Icelandic indie developer Torfi Ásgeirsson at the very end of 2022 Approved on PC, his new creation – an unusual heist simulator called The Professional.
The player’s task is to steal a huge diamond from the museum. To do this, you’ll need to climb over the crate, squeeze between the widely spaced signal bars, climb the stairs, grab the treasure, and return to the entry point.
It seems that nowhere is easier, but The Professional, like the famous QWOP, complicates the task. The robber’s arms and legs must be controlled by the player by moving the mouse. Thus, completing the task is no longer so easy.
After completing the task, The Professional will show the player the time spent on the robbery. Ausgeirsson’s best result steel 8 minutes and 20 seconds, but the players have already surpassed the developer’s performance.
In particular, gamer SparkyMcCalc1 literally flew through The Professional (see video below) in less than 1 minute – that speed record. The average user takes between half an hour and an hour to complete the game.
Ausgeirsson took over The Professional in early December 2022. The idea of controlling the character’s limbs came to the developer before bedtime, and the entourage was inspired by the film “Entrapment” starring Catherine Zeta-Jones (Catherine Zeta-Jones).
The Professional can be downloaded completely free of charge from the service juck.io (Windows, Linux, macOS). You can also find Ausgeirsson’s earlier work – A Firm Handshake, NUTS and a bunch of others.
