The Swapper coming to PS3, PS4, and Vita

Puzzle platformer will release in late May

Puzzle platformer The Swapper will arrive on PS3, PS4 and Vita in late May in North America and Europe.

The indie game first released on PC in 2013, with a handcrafted miniature visual style supporting its central conceit of creating and "swapping" between disposable clones to negotiate otherwise impossible puzzles.

"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," Curve Studios PR and marketing manager Rob Clark said on the PS Blog.

"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."

Curve will work with The Swapper's creator Olli Harjola to bring the game to PlayStation platforms. Curve's previous PC-to-PS conversion work includes Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut, and Proteus.

Curve did not specify whether players must individually purchase the three versions of The Swapper or whether progress can be transferred between them. However, the three games mentioned in the last paragraph had full cross-buy support.
