Two weeks until The Swapper lands on Steam


11:00 PM on 05.16.2013



A few seconds into this trailer for The Swapper and I'm reminded of how uniquely gorgeous the puzzle-platformer looks. There is, after all, a reason why we resort to bringing up The Neverhood in these situations; not enough games opt for the claymation look. If you're on board with such sentiment, take note that the game is releasing for Steam on May 30.

Puzzles will revolve around a device that lets you clone yourself and swap between living copies. More than that novel premise, The Swapper appears unsettling -- creepy, even -- without resorting to jump scares or twisted monsters. That's some effective environmental design if I've ever seen it.

Review: The Swapper
