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!
