The Swindle is a platforming, action and stealth game set in a Victorian steampunk world. All levels are procedurally generated, and it is the player’s job as a series of master thieves to break into buildings, steal cash, hack systems and get out. Players start small by robbing from the slums, and must upgrade their tools, abilities and skills until they can pull off the ultimate heist in Scotland Yard.
Dan Marshall, Founder of Size Five Games, had the following to say.
With The Swindle I wanted to design a completely new spin on the stealth and action experience whilst keeping true to a classic rogue like style experience. That was the kind of game that I always wanted to play but could never find. The reception we have already received has been incredible. I can’t wait to see people’s different heist set ups.
The Swindle is now available worldwide on other platforms, with an Xbox One arrival due this Friday.
