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 really like the sound of this and I am always intrigued when I see the words (custom built) on the Engine tag.

I certainly hope to see this one progress in future. Keep it up!

Yeah that video surely can confuse :D The gameplay happens in 2D in these sort of three-D'ish environments. There are no actual models. What you actually see on the screen is just 2D-planes with a visual trick applied to them.

It used to be made on Game Maker but atm a new engine with C#/OpenGL/Mono is being built. So it's gonna be available at least on Win/Linux/Mac.
