The Swindle is a Zany Steampunk Heist Game From the Creator of Gun Monkeys

on October 30, 2014 9:18 PM

Have you ever asked yourself if you’d like to play a heist game where you use steampunk gear to sneak into 2D complexs guarded by robots and steal money? I’m guessing that at least 90% of you answered yes, in which case The Swindle is the game you have been dreaming to get your hands on.

Developed by Dan Marshall, the man behind the indie game Gun Monkeys, players will take on the roll of a thief who breaks into complexes by using stealth and hacking to steal all their cash before making a exit in whatever way you can. The combination ends up looking like part Mark of the Ninja and part Gunpoint with a splash of Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine for good measure.

The game presently has no confirmed platforms and is scheduled to be completed sometime in 2015. In the meantime, you can watch the full trailer below and follow Dan Marshall on Twitter to get all the updates on the game as they come.
