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!

Well, we've done it. The long wait is over. The Swapper is officially coming to Steam (and other TBA outlets) on May 30th! Mark your calendars! Tell your friends and family.

The Swapper

We understand you might be feeling apprehensive that the launch date is so soon and that you have not properly prepared. Don't worry! With our help, in just 2 short weeks you too can be ready to play The Swapper.

We recommend you take the following steps*:

  • Isolate yourself for long periods of time. This will acclimate you to your new, desolate environment and help ward off space dementia.
  • Practice solving puzzles by pushing all buttons, levers, blocks and switches you come across in your day to day. If this causes trouble, just swap to one of your clones and leave the old one behind!
  • Oh, be sure to start cloning yourself. That part is also important.
  • Wear your space suit daily, including during rigorous physical exercise, sleeping and eating. You need to be familiar and nimble with your equipment on.

And remember, those voices you're hearing are all perfectly normal. It's an indication that your preparations are working!

Congratulations! Now you're on your way to successfully experiencing The Swapper!

For additional study materials please view this new gameplay trailer and read Part 1 of Tom's narrative retrospective.

Happy Swapping and thanks for the support everyone!
