Will it be available on consoles?
Probably not. I don’t want to say “no” outright, but I also don’t want to get your hopes up. There’s a lot more bullshit you have to go through to get a game on X-Box or PlayStation than there is to get one on Steam. Additionally, I don’t know what the realities of porting the game are going to look like, and I would rather not release a console version at all then release a substandard experience.
Will there be a versus mode?
I know this is funny to say, considering I’m basically stealing PAYDAY 2‘s concept, but I don’t want to add a versus mode because there’s already a game, Vice and Virtue: Bank Heist, whose entire point is that and I don’t wanna cut in on their action. I may reconsider though if they don’t get their shit together and actually get on Steam. They’ve been dickin’ around in Greenlight for years.
How can I help?
The most valuable thing you can do to help The Take! is to participate in the communities. Hang out on the forum and in the Discord server, create and reblog posts about it on tumblr, reddit, etc. Tell your friends about it. As a multi-player game, a strong community presence is going to be crucial to the game’s success.
I’m an artist/musician/writer, etc. Can I volunteer my talents?
I don’t hire volunteers. I want to do this as ethically as possible and to that end, I like to compensate people who contribute to this project with actual money. As I need help in certain areas and have the funds to pay for it, I look personally for people whose existing work fits within the game’s aesthetic.
If you really want to be a part of The Take!, your best bet here is participating in the community so I am aware of you and to have a portfolio ready to show.
Will there be character customization?
It’s not an immediate goal of mine. I feel every character has a Look and its important to maintain their own taste and style in their appearance. Moreover, I’ve seen the way some of you dress in Grand Theft Auto Online and Team Fortress 2.
If I ever do cosmetics, they will be character-specific items or outfits.
What’s your favorite heist movie?
Sugar & Spice. Yes, really.
