Monaco's co-op heist begins April 24

Monaco, the indie co-op heister which won the Independent Games Festival's 2010 grand prize for excellence in design, will release on April 24. Developer Pocketwatch Games confirmed the game will hit both Steam and Xbox Live Arcade simultaneously.

With Battleblock Theatre out today, we're getting choked up at the thought of all these long-awaited indie projects finally hitting the market. It was this time last year that Fez emerged whole from Phil Fish's forehead--must be something about April.

The PC version is available for pre-order on Pocketwatch Games' website, with a single copy and bonuses for $15 or a four-pack for $45.
