Reviews

“Fast-paced stealth set to a ticking clock makes this a procedural platformer to savour.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“An immensely satisfying mix of platforming, stealth, action, and resource management, with character.”
80% – PC Gamer

“But what a game it is. A complicated swirl of heists and capers which will leave you with sweaty palms, a dry mouth, and a bunch of brilliant stories.”
9/10 – PocketGamer

About This Game


The Swindle is a steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, hacking their systems, stealing all their cash, and quickly running away again before the police show up.

All the buildings you’ll be robbing are randomly-generated, so you’ll never get the same level twice.

Meanwhile, from the safety of your rickety airship up in Outer Space, you can modify your thief with new skills, tools, and all manner of advanced technological horrors, allowing you to take on bigger buildings with better security, for gargantuan rewards!

Have you got what it takes to pull off The Swindle?
