A drunk kleptomaniac tries to go on a crime spree. Stealth in. Steal. Escape. Simple right, what could go wrong?


Play as a drunk thief who breaks into houses to steal a target object ... and more alcohol to quench your thirst! The more alcohol you have, the harder and the more out of control the thief becomes. Take too long or make enough noise and the police will show up. Can you still escape with the cops hot on your tail?

  • 4 minigames
  • Cosmetic items

3 stars can be obtained in each normal level:

  • 1 for collecting all target items.
  • 1 for collecting all target drinks.
  • 1 for escaping on time.

How is this related to the 12M1S story? Seriously how.


The 3 star ending of World 2 - Level 4 will answer a big question and raise a few more...

oh, thanks! And OH MY GOODNESS THAT WAS HARD. Also fun, scary, and needed strategy.

Also also, great game! it was funny (especially the last 3 levels) challenging, (2-4 was VERY challenging) but most of all, a very well made game, just over all. And after a lot of work I managed to get ALL STARS!  I am very proud of myself.

Thank you Ian, for making all these amazing games like Armor of God (that's my favorite), and Death % (1+2), and From the Ashes, and Out of Time, and this one too. Thank you.

Thanks for playing! I'm glad you got a kick out of some of the small details like Oof Peanut Butter. My personal favorite is the Crust Toothpaste but that's a little later in the game. Great video all around, you've definitely earned a subscriber!

Thanks for playing! Im glad you enjoyed and the video was great!
