The Swapper Steam Release Date + New Trailer

Press release:


May 16th, 2013

Facepalm Games today announces the Steam release date for its debut title, The Swapper, as May 30th!  In addition, an all new gameplay trailer has been released.  

The Swapper is an atmospheric puzzle platformer set in the furthest reaches of space, and is the holder of numerous awards and accolades, including PAX 10, IndieCade and Indie Game Challenge. The game is backed by Indie Fund.

In the game, players wield an experimental device able to clone the user and swap control between them as they're dropped into a character and world as mysterious as the workings of the device itself. The Swapper is a game of exploration of a very personal nature.

All of the art in The Swapper is constructed using clay models and other everyday materials.

The Swapper is a game by all purpose person Olli Harjola, level designer Otto Hantula, featuring music by Carlo Castellano and narrative design by Tom Jubert.
