The Swindle: Steampunk Stealing
"Combining stealth and action is one of the toughest things to get right due to the polarizing mechanics and The Swindle hits that balance of making the player strong without becoming too powerful."
This week on the podcast, I sat down with Tim Wicksteed from Twice Circled to talk about his latest game Big Pharma.
The podcast is taking a little longer this week, due to some trouble with the recorder, but I have a video of more Grim Dawn play in the meantime.
In this video, I played through Odallus The Dark Call speed run style; getting through the game in just under an hour and 50 minutes. This is a major spoiler video, so don’t watch unless you want to see the whole game beaten.
The Swindle is the latest game from Size Five Games and attempts to combine various elements of rogue-like and stealth design into something uniquely different. Similar to Mark of the Ninja, we have a very streamlined yet challenging take on stealth design.
