In Bearhands Games’ upcoming stealth game, Grand Values: Monaco, players assume the role of Amy, a young and gifted burglar. Amy, along with her fellow aspiring “pro thieves,” Joe and Frank, find themselves in a sticky situation when a target (retired gangster Magnus) seeks revenge. Taking advantage of the 1% hotspot that is Monaco, Amy has to steal $50 million to get Magnus’ off their backs.
While Bearhands Games promises “dramatic plot twists, big stakes and developed characters,” along with “pure stealth gameplay,” Grand Values: Monaco’s female protagonist is a huge draw too. Not only is it refreshing to see that Amy is in charge of things (rather than being a secondary character or being relegated to just another face in a predominantly male ensemble cast) her character design subverts tropes as well.
