Indie Fund-backed The Swapper coming to Steam, releases new trailer

HELSINKI, FINLAND – 19th March 2013 – Facepalm Games announces today that The Swapper will be launching on Steam in April Spring 2013, and marks the occasion with an all-new trailer.

The Swapper is an atmospheric, 2D puzzle-platformer whose accolades include IndieCade’s Special Recognition Award, and selection for the PAX10 2012. It uses handmade art to render an explorable space station in unique detail, while gameplay sees players swap between different bodies to access long-hidden parts of the station, discover what brought them here, and whether or not it will let them leave. The game is backed by Indie Fund.

The announcement coincides with the release of the first official footage of the game since May 2011. The new trailer offers a glimpse of the story and atmosphere of the finished title.
Facepalm’s Olli Harjola, along with narrative designer, Tom Jubert, will be demoing the game in the Indie Megabooth at PAX East this weekend, and attending GDC the following week.
