The Swapper is an atmospheric 2D puzzle platformer, constructed using clay models and other everyday materials for a uniquely detailed look and feel. The game takes place on an abandoned space station and tackles the implications of the ‘Swapper’ - a device that can clone the user and transfer consciousness between different bodies. Coming Spring 2013!

I have some problems, in certain areas the game caps the Framerate to 30 FPS, I thought that modifying some things in the control panel of my card would fix that, but doesn't work in all parts of the game.

I have a GTS 450 card and an I5-650 cpu, is that enough for the game?

no its not in game the graphics may be bad but because of the pages and them having quite a bit of detail and being so spaced out they always have to be loaded

Wow and now monodevelop just froze while I was writing code and after a restart it stopped recognizing the shift key!

@BuckRuckman And this didn't even have anything to do with stack overflow. I simply wanted to set a breakpoint and see a few values change.

I might like unity if it didn't crash/hang every time I try to debug a script. Apparently log spamming is the right way to debug in 2014.
