    Hip Interactive delivers a Hollywood-style dose of hi-tech crime, suspense, and close-
    fitting body suits.


    Anya Romanov is an unlikely heroine operating on the wrong side of the law in a dark
    near-future world of oppression and fear. When a regular burglary goes awry, Anya finds
    herself ensnared in the deadly politics of a city whose underbelly is rife with corruption.
    Only her skills as a thief can hope to save her.

    Kitted out with the best hi-tech gear that "someone else's money did buy" Anya is not alone
    in her crimes. Thanks to micro-gadgetry, her friend and confidant Louie Palmer is now also
    the ever-present guiding voice in Anya's ear.

    Combining a blend of third-person, stealth and action games, Stolen delivers a tense,
    hi-tech thriller.

    Developer Blue 52 has focused on delivering atmospheric and detailed environments with
    awesome lighting effects. A museum, high-tech prison and satellite array are just some of
    the locations to creep and skulk around in this visually spectacular game.

    These touches aren't just cosmetic; smart use of the real-time shadow technology is
    essential for success. Use stealth, athletics, hacking, lock picking and an array of
    high-tech weapons to bypass security, but try to ignore your heart pounding in your ears
    as you try to outsmart and out-sneak a deadly, determined enemy.

    • A new heroine for a new kind of stealth game


    • Hollywood-style storyline, locations and cut-scenes


    • Deadly opponents present a lethal challenge, from security guards to advanced
      automated defence systems


    • Make use of numerous hi-tech gadgets, including tracking devices, sonic visor, and
      hacking devices
