A tiny thief on a massive fishing hook gets lowered pass several security drones and floating money bags.

Reel Steal

Mentor & Lead game programmer


Play as a pair of thieves who perform heists using comically large fishing hooks! Cranking scrolls you up or down while the hook sways left/right automatically.


Reel Steal was developed for the Playdate by a team of junior developers shadowed by a team of mentors. I served as a mentor for David Nguyen who not only handled the programming but also contributed to many other aspects of development, including writing and game design!
