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!

Introduction

It's incredible how quickly almost one year has passed since the the day the latest piece of news concerning The Swapper was published in Mod DB. Since then the game's binary size has almost tripled and our team has grown three times bigger, if counted in the number of eyeballs (it's grown from from two to six).

Soundtrack, multi-platform builds

While I don't want to talk too much about the singleplayer's gameplay yet to not spoil things, there are some other things worth mentioning. First, The Swapper's soundtrack and basically all audio is going to be created by a talented Italian guy called Carlo Castellano. Some pieces from the soundtrack can be heard in the following video. Also, don't forget to check out his YouTube channel.
In addition to that, some time ago we also actually got the Linux and OSX builds running. Concerning the fact that The Swapper is developed using C# things went really smoothly and only minimal changes were required.


New Trailer

It's been a great journey and while there's still a huge pile of work ahead, the following trailer is a pretty good indicator of all the progress we've made:

Creating clones and then swapping into their bodies to get past obstacles and avoid death? What's so hard to understand?
