Wii U players – get ready to rob: Steampunk action stealth game The Swindle infiltrates the eShop

Size Five Games and Curve Digital are excited to announce that steampunk stealth-platformer The Swindle will be available from Thursday September 10th on Wii U.

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

“After three years of developing and talking about nothing but The Swindle I am ecstatic that Wii-U players are finally getting their hands on the game,” says Dan Marshall, Founder of Size Five Games. “With The Swindle I wanted to design a completely new spin on the stealth and action experience whilst keeping true to a classic rogue like style experience. The reception we have already received has been incredible. I can’t wait to see people’s different heist set-ups.”

Managing director of Curve Digital, Jason Perkins, comments: “It’s been a huge privilege to have played a part in bringing The Swindle to consoles. Honing your skills and equipment whilst strategically planning is the key to success. Without them, you will never survive the 100 days. I had to learn that the hard way”

The Swindle is now available worldwide on the eShop for £11.99 with a 15% launch discount for the first two weeks of release. This title has been rated a PEGI 7.
