The Swindle is set in a steampunk variation of London and follows a group of thieves who are attempting to hijack an AI being developed by Scotland Yard.

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.
