The Swapper is a space-themed ambient sidescrolling puzzle platformer set in a semi-open world. The game's main mechanics are set around creating clones and swapping consciousnesses using a special device. One of the original inspirations for The Swapper was P.C. Jersild's novel "A Living Soul", a story told from the perspective of a brain separated from a body, living in a aquarium in a research facility. The Swapper inventively leverages its central mechanic to both create puzzles but also to allow story to emerge.
