Press Release

THURSDAY 25TH June , 2015 – London, United Kingdom

Size Five Games and Curve Digital are excited to announce that upcoming Steampunk stealth game The Swindle will be making its way on to consoles from July 28th.

To celebrate this announcement, Dan Marshall – developer and owner of Size Five Games – has unveiled five special ‘director’s cut’ images in which new gameplay details are revealed.

The Swindle is a platforming, action and stealth game set in a Victorian Steampunk world. All the levels are procedurally generated and it is the player’s job, as a master thief, to break into buildings, steal cash, hack systems and get out. Players must start small by robbing from the slums and upgrade their skills and abilities until they can pull off the ultimate heist in Scotland Yard.

Developer and owner of Size Five Games Dan Marshall says: “The Swindle is the kind of game that I always wanted to play; one minute you’re sneaking past robot security guards to grab a load of loot and the next you’re being chased by police choppers and drones, desperately trying to avoid capture and an awkward-and-embarrassing death. Procedurally generated adventures are all the rage these days – but there’s nothing with stakes quite as high as The Swindle.”

Managing director of Curve Digital, Jason Perkins, comments: “We were seduced by The Swindle the moment we first encountered it – so it has been brilliant to play a part in the game leaping onto consoles. We’re really looking forward to seeing how players’ heists go down.”

The Swindle will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on July 28th, on Xbox One on July 31st and Wii U shortly after.
