Size Five Games founder Dan Marshall has taken to the PlayStation Blog to announce that their new stealth game with a twist, The Swindle, is now available for the PS3, PS4, and the PS Vita.
Taking place in a stylized steampunk version of London, with awesome art by Michael Firman , The Swindle follows the adventure of Barnabus Moonpuncher, who’s out to stop Scotland Yard from ending his career with their new Artificial Intelligence technology, code-named “The Devil’s Basilisk.”
From an airship based in Space, The Swindle will task players to break into a variety of buildings and avoid the security so they can hack into computers to steal money. Everything about each heist is randomly generated so no two heists will be the same. With the money earned from heists players will be able to buy and upgrade a variety of gadgets such as quad jump boots, bombs, and even a teleporting device through an RPG style menu. Players will also be able to unlock new characters over the course of their thieving adventure.
Unlike most stealth games however, if players get seen in The Swindle, the game becomes an all-out race against the clock as players will have to hack as many computers as possible while also trying to escape from the police.
.The Swindle is now available for the PS3, PS4 and the PS Vita for $14.99/€14.99 and it also has cross-buy support. It is also available for the Wii U and the PC via Steam.
