'Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger And The Terribly Cursed Emerald' Crows Crows Crows

Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and the Terribly-Cursed Emerald

Okay, so it technically came out toward the end of 2015, but this 15 minute steal 'em-up by Crows Crows Crows, the team led by William Pugh (The Stanley Parable) is just too good to ignore. Despite its popularity in cinema, the heist genre remains relatively unexplored in gaming, with hits like Monaco and the Sly Cooper series as the few exceptions. With Dr. Langeskov, however, you never quite know what's going to come next, as the degree of freedom offered by the game is breathtaking. Do you go for the emerald, and risk both the curse and the tiger, or simply grab as much loot as you can? Just don't go too far off-script – the game's Stage Manager prefers an expedient production, at almost any cost, especially to himself.
