17 August 2022 – Crimerunner, a new first-person action game from True Games Syndicate and Movie Games, parkours into Steam with an announcement trailer. A criminal will rise on PC in 2024.  

The 1980s were a different time.
You didn't have smartphones or GPS.
Dirty jobs were much more... dirty.

I was fast and silent. Just what the big fish needed in this town. A perfect courier.

I had to gain their trust. Make money. Climb to the top. But I needed to watch out. 

The first failed job could be my last.    

There were three main gangs in the city. Each was a master of its craft. Car theft. Burglary. Drug dealing.

My choices, the jobs I took, would bind me to one of the factions. 

But I liked to keep my options open. Nothing stood in the way of climbing the ranks of all three. Or so I thought.

Don’t you judge me, pal. Living in this city was not easy at all. You wanted to survive, you had to run jobs and increase your standing within the gangs.

As my reputation grew, so did the prestige of the jobs. Bigger houses to break into. More difficult parts to steal from cars. Harder drugs to smuggle. 

All that in the shadows of the night.  

Who would’ve thought the cops would be so vigilant? Patrolling the streets. Actively looking for you if you screwed up.

High standing with any of the gangs could save your arse if you got caught but reputation was very easy to lose… So it was best to not get caught at all.

I was quicker, smaller, I could get away for sure. I always needed to be one step ahead. 

Play my story.    

An Idea Evolved
Crimerunner is a newly announced title, but it evolved from Gangster Simulator, which was announced some time ago. Why the name change? 

At first Gangster Simulator was a typical first-person sim. Pretty much a part of the larger crowd. Now that we’ve added more dynamic action with parkour and stealth – it became its own, new thing. More focused. More thrilling. More fun. With these additions, Crimerunner was born.

So prove your worth and climb to the top… Parkour style! 

The game is coming to PC in 2024. For more information follow our Steam and social media.
