The Swapper was ported to PlayStation by developer Curve Studios and was published by its publishing arm, Curve Digital. It marks the third PlayStation title published this year by the Curve Digital team, and the ninth PlayStation indie title overall, making Curve one of the largest indie publishers on PlayStation formats. It also marks the final game the company are working on for the PlayStation 3.
“We’re really happy with the final result of The Swapper on all three formats, and a lot of technical work went into making the PlayStation 3 version as smooth and good looking as it is,” said Jason Perkins, Managing Director at Curve Digital. “We plan on releasing a lots more PlayStation games -- and with the amazing take-up of PlayStation 4 and Vita in the last six months, we’re going to focus our efforts on making the best games possible on those systems.”
Originally an award-winning PC game, the PlayStation version of Facepalm’s game has already received critical acclaim -- currently holding a PS4 Metacritic of 85. As a cross-buy title, purchasing the game on any of three PlayStation formats will immediately grant access to the game on all three systems.
