Size Five Games is proud to announce our next game: The Swindle. There’s loads more info and some screenshots over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Here’s what Dan Marshall pretended to say when he wrote a press release about himself:
“The Swindle is a Steampunk physics-based platformer that plays a little bit like Deus Ex mixed with Sonic the Hedgehog” said Dan Marshall, head of Size Five Games. “I wanted to make something no one’s done before, and I’m pretty sure this fits the bill…”
Players will be charged with infiltrating various facilities and hacking computers to steal money, before making their escape. All that glorious cash can then be spent on upgrading equipment, giving you access to new areas where you can nick even more goodies.
“It’s up to you how you want to upgrade your kit and play – you can stealth your way in, or go all guns blazing. There’ll be various routes, weapons, tactics and special abilities, all realised in a uniquely stylised 2D cartoon setting.”
The Swindle is coming to Windows PC and, assuming they can resist putting vaginas in it this time, hopefully Xbox 360. Available when it’s done.
Exciting! Worth pointing out it’s still very early in development. The best way to get all the latest info is by following @danthat over on The Twitter, I’ll doubtlessly be putting everything up there.
