[PAX East '13] Pixelitis.net interviews Facepalm Games’ Olli Harjola

"The Swapper was one of the games that I was most impressed with at PAX East. It combined the atmospheric dungeon crawling elements of Super Metroid with the puzzle elements of Portal into an eerie and thought provoking game.

I had the chance to interview Olli Harjola, the Creative Director behind the game. Learning that the images within the game were actually pictures of real things that he had taken took me by surprise. That, and the fact that the plot was based off a book about a brain living in a glass jar lent credence to the game’s heavy atmosphere."

- Tom Farndon (PC, The Swapper)
