‘The Swapper’ Coming to PlayStation Platforms in MayBy: Sean Patterson - February 26, 2014
Last year indie game studio Facepalm Games released The Swapper for PC. The title is a stylish puzzle game with some interesting/disturbing story elements linked to its core gameplay mechanic of using clones to solve puzzles. The Swapper was highly praised by critics and now console gamers will get a chance to see what the hype was about.
Today Curve Studios announced that The Swapper will be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita sometime in late May. Curve is the developer porting the game to PlayStation platforms.
Though more details about the console version will be coming over the next couple of months, it seems that the game will appear on PlayStation platforms in nearly the exact same form as it did on PC. Players will take on the role of a character stranded in a deep space outpost called Theseus station. To solve puzzles players will have to use four extra clone versions of their character and use them Lost Vikings-style.
The Swapper announcement is yet another in a long line of indie game announcements Sony has made over the past year. With titles such as Octodad and TowerFall landing on the PlayStation 4, Sony’s new console is quickly becoming the go-to platform for indie studios looking to make an appearance on consoles.
