The Swapper

Show posts for all products, not just The Swapper

As befits a game about cloning yourself, The Swapper is multiplying onto PlayStation 4, PS3, and Vita. Facepalm Games' sci-fi puzzle-platformer is fizzing away in Sony test tubes at Curve Studios, the folks behind PlayStation ports of PC games from Proteus to Thomas Was Alone.

Another Humble Indie Bundle? What a strange turn of events. I thought for sure that Humble was going to suddenly and inexplicably shut down their massively successful enterprise this time around. I mean, they’re on Humble Indie Bundle 11 now. What a gross number. Ten – nay, X – was so svelte, so confident. It plucked the olive from life’s martini glass just so>, and we all just wanted its gaze to fall on us for a single precious second. So seriously, what’s even the point of having more Humble Bundles? Oh, right: amazing games and charity and stuff. This time around, the star-studded lineup includes Guacamelee, Monaco, Antichamber, and my personal favorite puzzler of 2013, The Swapper.

We've just released an update that we decided to call v1.16.
It adds and contains, amongst other boring techy things:

  • Linux support!
  • OSX support!
  • SDL2 as platform abstraction library instead of OpenTK, fixes multiple compatibility issues
  • GPU-scaled fullscreen mode, the game never changes screen resolution anymore
  • Updated FMOD audio library to version 4.44.30, fixes audio related crashes
  • The game doesn't use XML serializers anymore, fixes an extremely rare crash issue
  • Improved debug logging
  • Made gamepad support more robust
  • Got rid of GLU requirement
  • Multiple minor compatibility fixes


Linux and OS X versions will be available for download also for people who bought the game before the update!

Humble Bundle is stepping into the ring with a new batch of indie games. The Humble Indie Bundle 11 includes up to six games, depending on how much you choose to play, including Drinkbox Games' lucha libre Metrovania beat-'em-up, Guacamelee! Gold Edition, the Escher-esque first-person puzzler Antichamber, and the manic heist game Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine. And of course, you can choose how much of your money goes to developers or the Child's Play and Electronic Frontier Foundation charities.

Now you can explore the dark mysteries of Theseus from the comfort of your sofa!

As the title says this update adds native gamepad support to The Swapper. We've put a big effort into making playing with gamepad feel natural by adding snapping support to the map and reworking all menu controls. The game also supports rumble on some controllers.

The update should be automatically downloaded by Steam. If that doesn't happen a Steam client restart should fix the problem.

Therrrrrrrrrre is so much a seal could tell you, so much he could bark. Yoouuuuuuuuuuuuuu remain, MY POWER MY PLEASURE MY *COUGH-LIKE BELCHING NOISE*

[Earth-shaking slapping sounds can be heard in the distance, like fresh lard being cannon-fired at an ancient war drum]

Do you hear that?

[A glass of water ripples ominously; a largely decorative Jello mold does the same, but fails to be particularly frightening]

Something’s coming. Something big.

[Dogs whine, horses stomp frantically, one or two people glance up from Western-shootout-caliber staredowns with Facebook on their phones]

It’s… it’s… SEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL.

Humble Bundle is best-known for its pay-what-you-want bundles, but has now launched something a little less fleeting: the Humble Store. The permanent storefront will sell games for Android as well as PC, Mac, and Linux. It all kicks off with a sale on nine games, including Don't Starve, Gunpoint, and Rogue Legacy.

What would you do if you had a small army of identical, perfectly obedient clones? It’s a question I think we’ve all asked ourselves at least once (usually at around age six) but never really contemplated the ramifications of. Facepalm Games’ The Swapper dives deep into that particular rabbit hole, emerging with a wriggling handful of ethical quandaries and some positively brain-busting puzzles. But does it manage to balance its weighty concept with an equally scale-tipping amount of, you know, fun? Here’s wot I think. >

Product Release - Valve
The Swapper is Now Available on Steam and is 25% off

Holder of numerous awards and accolades, the Swapper is an atmospheric puzzle platformer set in the furthest reaches of space. Players wield an experimental device able to clone the user and swap control between them. 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.
