"A beautiful puzzle game which involves using clones of yourself to traverse obstacles. But what mystery lies beyond? A gloomy, ambient experience."

レビュー

“I came away from The Swapper with nothing but amazement. From the first time you see the literally hand-crafted visuals until the final moment in the game, which is sure to give you pause for thought, you will be in complete awe.

Brilliant puzzles with even more brilliant solutions compliment the philosophical plotline, leaving an unforgettable experience unlike any other.”
10/10 – Destructoid

“The Swapper tempted me with ingenious puzzles, transported me to a fully realized science-fiction world, and made me ask questions about mortality and morality that few video games have ever dared to explore.

Very few puzzle games have ever managed to marry impeccable challenges with a mature storytelling quite like this – there's no fluff or extraneous content here, only a prime example of how to create a tight, unforgettable gaming experience.”
9.3 – IGN

“It didn’t take me long to fall in love with The Swapper; it continuously surprised and impressed me from its intriguing first moments to its fantastic ending.”
9.25 – Game Informer

“Think, rethink. Get stumped. Take a break. Go outside. Have some ice crea- wait, no. Pet a dog. Or maybe go for a stroll in the park, because that would- Oh god, now Swapper’s thought process has invaded your mind. You can’t escape.”

粘土などで作った造形物を撮影してマップにし、そこへ更にライティングなどの効果を付与してステージを構成しているというかなり特殊な作り方をされているゲームで、「己の分身を4体まで作り意志を転送しながら先へ進む」というシステムのパズルゲーム。実況プレイをアップしているので参考にして頂けると幸いです。

クリアまでの時間はあまり迷わなければ5時間ほど、迷えばそこへ更に上乗せされていく感じです。パズルゲームとしては単発ものながら非常に洗練されており、クリエイターさんのセンスの良さが十二分にうかがえる一作です。

ただ日本語がサポートされていない・日本語化字幕MODなどが存在していないため、ストーリー部分を深く理解しようとなると自分である程度翻訳していかなければならない上、設定がSFなので簡単な英語だけ読めればOKというわけにもいかないのが難点です。

エンディングまで到達するには全てのパズルを解かなければならないので、詰んだと思ったら攻略動画などを参考にするといいと思います。段々とパズルは難しくなっていき、日常生活では使わないような脳の部分を刺激してくれる極上のSFパズルゲームです。

廃墟となった巨大宇宙基地を探索する2Dパズルアクション。
Swapperという装置を使って離れた位置に自分のクローンを作り出し、クローンに自分の動きを追従させたり位置を交換することでパズルを解いていく。銃のような装置で自分とクローンの位置を入れ替えるという点で、Portalのパズルに似ている印象があるが、作り出したクローンを動かせる点でユニークだ。Swapper使用時に時間がゆっくり流れることと自分とクローンと重なるとクローンは消えることは早めに覚えておくといいだろう。
このゲームのモデリングは粘土細工を実写取り込みで行ったということで独特の質感があり、粘土細工ということを感じさせない丁寧なライティングは非常に素晴らしく、他にはない雰囲気を醸し出している。
日本語未対応のためストーリーはよく分からなかったが多くのレビューで絶賛されており、雰囲気とパズルが良いだけでなく全体的に良く出来たゲームだ。パズルアクションに興味があればプレイして損は無い。

実績は、壁の中の隠し通路の奥のシークレットを見つけるものばかりだが、ヒント無しで自力で探すのはパズルを解くことよりも相当大変だと思われる。

Review greatly shortened due to length constraints

I just can't think of this game as a platfomer. There are no death traps, no enemies to avoid, no coins or baubles to collect... it's simply an adventure game that happens to have some platforms in it.

You hold a "swapping" device in your hands that has two abilities: First is the duplicate function. What this does is create exact replicas of you, and your replica(s) will mimic every move you make. You can have up to four duplicates at any given time. If they "die" you can create another to take its place, and when your duplicates touch you, they disappear, allowing you to make another. Second is the "swapping" beam. Zap any of your replicas with this beam to have your consciousness transferred to that body. The swapping beam has one more function, and I mention it only because I got completely stuck, having NO idea you could do this: If you are in freefall, you can use the beam to "push" yourself through space.

The game progresses through a series of puzzles based upon these abilities. There are obstacles in that the swapping device reacts differently around colored lights. For instance, you can create a duplicate within red light, but your swapping beam is completely blocked by the red. The opposite holds true within blue light, and so on.

The music sets the tone so beautifully, so perfectly, that you don't really notice it at first. Never distracting, I was more than once surprised to realize that not only was it was there, that it was lovely to listen to, as well. "Lovely?" you ask, "In an atmospheric psychological horror?" To that I say, "Absolutely!" Just go with it, you'll see what I mean when you play The voices are done incredibly well, never feeling stilted or out-of-place.

And that brings me to the story, that which binds the whole game together in this richly-woven tapestry. The story progresses in multiple ways. You will occasionally hear voices (... no, not that kind of "hearing voices"!) as you progress through the game, and, as mentioned, they are very well done. Next up are the terminals, which give you snippets of conversations and orders from the command of this place you're in. Lastly you have the thoughts of... something(s), which I will not give away.

When I first saw the graphics, I thought they looked blurry... fuzzy, even. It's amazing how differently you perceive things when you're actually playing the game yourself, and not just looking at screenshots or a video. Suffice to say that the graphics contribute to the overall feeling of the game. Somehow, The Swapper reminds me of John Carpenter's The Thing. No, there's no parasitic life form trying to assimilate and/or mutilate you, but those feelings... Cold. Alone. Uneasy. It is all of these and more.

This is truly a must-play game for anyone who enjoys a deeply environmental game with a powerful tale to tell... a tale whose full implications I have yet to digest. Better yet, this is a game that can be enjoyed even more upon subsequent play-throughs... And that is something I will be even more happy to do now that I know I missed some of the content my first time through.

Highly recommended!

The Swapper is a beautiful game - I felt that when starting it for the first time. What I wasn't expecting was for it to draw me in so completely, after the matter of a few levels. The mechanics are pretty much what is described on the store page, that you can create a certain number of clones, and swap control between them. That's it. No unlocks, no level ups for harder puzzles. What you can do as you delve deeper into the empty space station, is what you've always been able to do. That's one thing I really admire about this game. It makes your brain unlock, your imagination of this simple tool unlock, instead of unlocking things for the tool itself.

Now back to my favorite aspect, the immersion of this game. There are no doubt many games of an abandoned site, be it a space station or historical site, et cetera. The Swapper, drew me in. I felt so utterly small, so alone. There are logs to be found as to what befell the previous occupiers of the station, but I did not feel hope. The quiet sounds, and large space station was definitely too hallow for one. For this one explorer. Or a few. You find some consciousnesses that are just those, thoughts floating in a great atmosphere. (Vague I know, but you'll see.) This game makes you think, mechanic wise, and story wise, yet it's not really trying to make you think about the "story", but more of all the implications.

Overall, this is an excellent, thought provoking game in execution, atmosphere, and puzzle mechanics. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and couldn't put it down.

The Swapper has a great atmosphere and an addictive gameplay, it has got smart puzzle mechanic also being part of platformer. There is also a fun sci-fi story with a twist you gradually uncover as you go along.

I said "smart puzzle mechanic" but believe me you will scratch your head at some of the puzzles, but all can be solved logically by considering how to work around your limitations not anymore. Playing this felt like brain exercise. Outside of the puzzle rooms, it’s fun to clone & zip yourself around as you traverse the map. It's kinda unorthodox. Great idea and I respect that.

Also The Swapper has got an amazing&gritty sounds, ambiance, music these are fits the storyline perfectly to compliment the exceptionally gripping gameplay that brings something new to an existing genre, pulled off with style. If you enjoyed puzzle platformers, you should give this a shot. Believe me you won't regret this experience...
