The Swindle is a game that’s been buzzing around for quite some time, but it dropped off the radar when creator Dan Marshall wasn’t quite sure how to make it work. Back in February, Dan revealed that he’d fixed the game and that it would be back, better than ever.
The idea behind The Swindle is that you are are a member of a band of thieves and as such, you’re pretty fond of breaking into buildings and sneaking around. You can then spend your takings on becoming an even better thief and then the cycle continues.
However, it’s not all ski masks and sticking to the shadows as you’ll have to think carefully about your entry and exit strategy. If you don’t manage to leave the building with your loot, or if the guards catch you, you will lose that character and will have to carry on playing the game as someone else. We’ll be able to take part in that high stakes gameplay soon as The Swindle will be released this summer.
