Steal from strangers. Steal from friends. Steal in a school, at work, on a plane or deep beneath the earth's surface.
The important thing is to steal *before* you're stolen from.
...Hopefully it's obvious but you aren't stealing real money. Everyone starts with $1000 and then it's up to you to steal the rest.
PKPKT does the hard work of finding other players by detecting them using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) in the background. You do not need a data connection. It's completely off the grid.
The point of the game is to collect the most money (duh), but once the initial theft occurs, you can chat with your opponent by sending messages over bluetooth. These messages are completely private as they are not stored on any server.
"PKPKT is one of the first games to really take advantage of [Bluetooth Low Energy] technology in a natural way." - The Verge
"This game turns Bluetooth into a high-stakes stealing match." - GigaOm
