Celebrity appearances in video games are nothing new, but I never expected to see one quite like this. From Kalypso Media and Skilltree Studios comes Crookz, a tactical heist game set in the '70s, debuted earlier this week with a trailer featuring none other than adult entertainer Ron Jeremy.

In Crookz, you'll command a ragtag group of thieves, each with their own specialties like lock-picking and brute strength, to pull off high-stakes robberies across 20 missions. In a parody of films like Ocean's Eleven, the live-action announcement trailer sets the tone for the groovy, mustached mayhem that is sure to ensue.

Though the screenshots below are our only look at the game so far, we do know players will also be able to use tools like camera jammers and chloroform to assist in their sneaking. In addition to taking on the campaign's stages, players can create their own challenges and share them with others.

Crookz is slated for release in 2015 on PC, Mac, and Linux. For more from Kalypso, check out the recently announced Dungeons 2.
