Art Thief was a game created by students in the Fall of 2017 at California Institute of the Arts for the CalArts Game Makers Club.  

Fresh-faced security guard Olive defends the museum from a nefarious art thief.  She must gather clues, solve puzzles, craft items, and listen to the many woes of the museum’s colorful cast of employees, artworks, and enemies.

such a delightful game! I love the ending. I wasn't expecting it to go that route and it turned out so pleasantly heart warming <3  I did complete the game but I couldn't switch the power on and the part of turning on the power for the sound exhibit was the only thing that I couldn't do. 

What a charming game! :)

Thanks for playing!!  If you have time, check out some of the other games made by CalArts students on our page.  There’s a lot of amazing work, some of which is made by the same people who made Art Thief! :D

Maybe I'm too dumb, but I can't lock the patio door. I picked up the key, but neither left/right-click works. I tried clicking on the key hole, door knob, and door.  Any hints?
I really like the artwork and music. I can tell a lot of work went into this game!
