Described as "a little bit like Deus Ex mixed with Sonic the Hedgehog," the next game from Size Five Games (formerly Zombie Cow) is a physics-based platformer called The Swindle, the company revealed Tuesday. The game has a steampunk aesthetic, and involves infiltrating facilities to hack computers and steal money. "I wanted to make something no one’s done before, and I’m pretty sure this fits the bill," said Size Five's Dan Marshall in a blog post. The game is currently slated for Windows-based PCs with the possibility of an Xbox 360 version, and will be available "when it's done," according to Marshall. Size Five Games, which developed Time Gentlemen, Please! and a sexual education game called Privates, changed its name from Zombie Cow Studios earlier this year.
