Feature: Space Is A Clonesome Place

The Swapper review

What would you do if you had a small army of identical, perfectly obedient clones? It's a question I think we've all asked ourselves at least once (usually at around age six) but never really contemplated the ramifications of.

Dead Space 2D? The Swapper

Actually, it's even more interesting than that. Forthcoming indie platformer The Swapper by Facepalm Games is, in their words, an "indie game and a story about treating human beings as objects. It features interesting platform puzzles and multiplayer based around never-before-seen game mechanics. Of course blended with an ambiguous storyline. Yet it's something you've not yet seen." The video, pointed out to me by Comrade…
