The idea of being cloned is one that appeals to many people for various reasons. This is the premise for upcoming indie video-game, The Swapper, which is being published by Curve Studios and was originally developed by Facepalm Games.
The main character is able to create up to four clones, and swap between clones to control through a variety of puzzles. The area I explored during the preview demonstration was a dark mine that felt similar to the one in Double Fine’s The Cave. Yet, the cave within this title is much darker in a way that makes it far more tempting to explore. It’s difficult to resist wondering what lies beyond the many narrow tunnels connecting the wider areas of the cave.
On the PlayStation 4, it’s looking fantastic and is definitely making good use of the hardware. It’s not quite as easy on the eye when displayed on the Vita’s touch screen, but there is no doubt that both of the versions shown were still great to look at.
