Mike is a decent man. An ordinary one, you might say. But he is no pushover when it comes to capturing the enchanted hat from his nemesis, Divider.
Divider’s hat changes everything, including the position and direction of the screen. Mike’s only hope is to collect the cursed keys, and catch Divider through different locations and traps.
Swaps and Traps is a fun little game, which will challenge your platformer skills as well as your eyes and necks. As you collect a key in a scene, you also trigger the main trap of the game. Portions of your screen will swap, turn and even flip horizontally and vertically to give you one unique adventure.

Our first DLC is the soundtrack, as many people told us they liked the groovy music of our twisty adventure. We'll see in a couple of weeks if this has any impact on wishlists.
Here is the DLC:
We are trying new visuals on the Steam page. This is important. Change the order, add new screenshots, make new gifs... Try and try till you get that percentage a bit high. ;)
Here is the trailer of Swaps and Traps if you wonder what this is all about:
As we approach our launch on February 12th, we started sending our press kit and updates to various contacts. Here is a brief checklist view of the first...
