New Blip: The Swindle

The Swindle started development and then got cancelled, but then it got un-cancelled and totally revamped by developer Size Five Games, best known for Ben There, Dan That and Time Gentlemen, Please (back when they were called Zombie Cow Studios... even their name got cancelled). The Swindle mixes steampunk and cyberpunk together with 1849 London acting as the game's setting, but still with hacking and body modification stuff that typically resides in the realm of science fiction. This is a heist game where the goal is to break into various procedurally-generated facilities, hack them, and make off with all of their money. Money lets you upgrade your dirigible and outfit your thief with new skills and better equipment, allowing you to take on bigger jobs.

The game is headed for PC via Steam, as well as PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U and Xbox One at the end of this month (July).
