Welcome to The Great Heist

The Great Heist is an online role-playing game and community where the players strive for infamy and fortune in a world of crime and high-stakes heists.

You start the game as a simple thief with empty pockets. Join a crew of smooth criminals or work alone, the choice is yours. Play your cards right and you'll soon be traveling the world leaving a trail of empty bank vaults behind you. The long arm of the law will constantly try to foil your ingenious schemes so try to stick to the shadows or you'll end up in the slammer!

The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you're not logged in. Success in the game is determined by careful strategy and good timing, not by constant online presence. It's perfectly possible to be successful in the game by logging in a couple of times a week to check up on things.

The Great Heist is free of charge and no downloads are necessary to play it. If you can read this you're good to go.

A portion of our users are not able to use the Facebook Login feature to log in or sign up at the moment. The exact nature of the problem is unknown, only that it started to occur after we made a required update to the Facebook Login infrastructure. We've reached out to Facebook for help, but the issue is still at large.

If you are one of those affected, please use the regular login and sign up methods instead. You may request a new password by entering the same e-mail address you are using on Facebook in the reset password function.

This Week in Real Life #38
Server time6/13/2019

This will be the last twirl before the summer. There's a couple of things we plan to do in the game before we go on vacation but we're already slowing things down on the development side of things. Long gone are the days of inexperienced foolishness when we would release new stuff on fridays and right before holidays. We know a lot of you miss those days, but honestly you shouldn't, Popogeddon was only fun in hindsight.

Like always we won't all go on vacation at once, that would be impossible. Instead we'll take turns frolicking in the sun. There will always be at least one developer around to make sure the game is up and running. Please be kind to that poor soul during this time. We'll be back before you know it!
