Yes, the game is already on Steam Greenlight and you can vote "Yes" if want to see it get on Steam.
As for it being free. The original prototype of the game will remain free for people to play. However we won't be releasing the new version for free.
For this game, a number of the features we are going to be adding is difficult and very time consuming. We are also developers currently working out of our own pocket, who need to be able to eat and pay bills in order to make this happen for everyone. Even with part time jobs, development only takes longer.
In an ideal world, we'd love to make games for free for everyone to enjoy. But in order for us to create more games in the future, money to be able to do that has to come from somewhere to give us all the time we need to be able to work on The Very Organized Thief and future titles.
If you're referring to The Very Organized Thief, please visit our website (http://www.redefinitiongames.com/
) or watch our developer diaries to find out more. There is a lot of news and information explaining what our current plans are, and there's plenty more news to come.
If we told you it wouldn't be an achievement. But we can give you a hint. : P
It has to do with the teddy bears.
It's actually the same download as The Very Organized Thief. However it only unlocks during the Halloween month.
The owner won't come home sooner if you turn on lights or make loud sounds. He will come home sooner if you set off the alarm.
But he does see you more easily in rooms with lights on, and if you make to much noise he will investigate the sound.
We are currently working on 3 new levels, with the hopes to add even more. One level is the remake of the original house with a slightly different layout and new areas to search for things in. The other two, are brand new levels with new things to "borrow" and unique challenges.
If you want even more levels, please pre-order, tell your friends, share it on Facebook and Twitter. Every pre-order helps us to add more features and levels to The Very Organized Thief.
Yes! We are hoping to release to make.
Currently the prototype (the one free to play) has a number of things that you can do that we are hoping to change, such as leaving the house despite the owner being outside the door. So how you escape is going to be a little different in the new version.
The owner does have name...
Our current aim with levels is to keep owners and other characters appearances the same, but their behaviour slightly different every time you play. This keeps some level of predictability within the game making it a little easier for players. This isn't to say that it won't be challenging.
And yes, owners and other characters will respond to the mess you make around the house.
In the new version, the house, and many of the other levels, will be in the same style just with improved art, more details and colors.

We are currently focusing on developing the new version, along with finding a means to help fund The Very Organized Thief. So there are no plans currently to update the free version.
The game has no programmed jump scares. A lot of the jump scares people are experiencing are simply "wrong place, right time".
As for the owner. The owner literally doesn't know anything about you until he see's you. When he arrives home, he will investigate any noise he might hear (i.e footsteps and doors) or lights he might see (i.e your torch). Until then, he's just wandering around the house. He also has a hard time seeing in the dark, which is why he turns most of the lights on. He will also come home earlier if you set the alarm off.
