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

@cmuratori You're writing a benchmark? Respect.

@cmuratori But give me a scaling, performant, smoothly animated IMGUI implementation and I'll never use RMGUI again!

@cmuratori I think Unity editor is the natural example but it seems they had to make compromises to make the IMGUI run acceptably

@cmuratori That's something we can argue about too but let's say anything with live UI elements in the magnitude of thousands

@cmuratori GC is not an implementation too yet I think the argument about "good GC being better than manual memory mgmt" is bs in most cases
