Curve Studios announces The Swapper as a PC port for PS3, PS4, and Vita this May
Rob Clarke from Curve Studios has gone onto the PlayStation Blog to make their fourth game announcement, The Swapper is coming to all PlayStation platforms this May. If you’re anything like me and don’t play PC games (blasphemy!) then you likely didn’t know that The Swapper was a well received game.
Developed by Olli Harjola, the game uses clay formed objects and real world trinkets to uniquely depict a space station filled with award winning puzzles. Metacritic says The Swapper is good with a score of 87, and you can’t argue with Metacritic.
Clarke says this about the game:
The Swapper is set on Theseus, a damaged space station and research facility. It’s a claustrophobic, dark, and atmospheric environment, but it’s also very unique in style — there’s no blocky pixel art and digital textures in this game, but instead handcrafted art and clay models designed by the original developers.
These real world props make up the many different environments in the game and provide The Swapper with an art style that feels realistic and is dripping with tons of detail. This is a game where the environment tells a story every bit as much as the dialogue in the game, so we’ve been working very hard at Curve to make sure each version we make looks and sounds perfect.
There is no doubt in our minds that Curve Studios is committed to quality ports on PlayStation. And they sure know how to pick the good indie games to bring on over. Is it a good thing that PS4 will be getting lots of quality indie games or do you think the only way to play is with more triple-A? Let us know in the comments below…
