Set in a steampunk variation of London, The Swindle follows a group of thieves who are attempting to hijack an AI being developed by Scotland Yard. If the AI is completed, the thieves' exploits will be at an end.
The game takes place over 100 days. Each day a thief is sent on a heist to a part of London. The thief can search the region for money, avoiding or destroying a variety of guard robots patrolling the grounds. The thief can employ a variety of tools to destroy walls and other obstacles, hack computers for additional funds, or bug locations to turn them into income streams.
Other gameplay elements include perma-death, as a thief can die in a variety of ways, or become stuck and eliminated with a suicide pill to avoid capture, and the player assumes another thief on the following night.
