Steampunk platformer The Swindle involves the simple premise of breaking in, stealing stuff, and getting the hell out of there. All of the properties that you’ll be stealing from are procedurally generated but in the end, all you have to do to secure the loot is leave the building with your life intact.
But leaving ‘with your life intact’ is a lot more difficult than it sounds as The Swindle‘s enemies can kill you with just one hit, no matter where it comes from. Given that the game’s playable characters are all gone for good once they die, along with all of their upgrades, that could make gameplay as stressful as ever. However, developer Dan Marshall is convinced that The Swindle is better because of it. Find out more after the break.
