Announcing new art style for The Swapper

[Those of you who didn't figure it out - this was an April Fools post!]

Some of you may have wondering why our blog has been so silent lately. The answer is that we’ve been super-busy working on some improvements on the tech that powers The Swapper.

During that time we also figured out that the HTML5/tablet market is the future. That, and the fact that we felt The Swapper could be even more immersive led us to totally revamp the game’s art style.

Below is a quick teaser showcasing the results our hard work. We’re super-hyped! We believe this is the right direction and hope you enjoy the changes as well! Stay tuned!

New website is up

Facepalm Games is proud to announce that it now officially has an official website at facepalmgames.com.
There are some new screenshots to check out and a mailing list to subscribe.

It’d also be worth mentioning that the team now consists of two guys (it used to be just one). My main roles are still programming and art, while the other guy focuses on creating environments and designing puzzles as exciting as ever possible.
