Everyone remember that film Moon? The science-fiction drama about *spoiler alert* the chap that has to come to terms with the fact he might be just one in a series of clones? If you have ever wished that you could play a really, really good game of that film, then The Swapper might just be for you.
Using a device called (not surprisingly) ‘The Swapper’, the player can create clones of themselves and swap between them. Disappointingly, you cannot talk to them, sharing deep philosophical discussions about the meaning of existence. That’s left for the snippets of conversation (I say conversation, the player is in fact mute) between you and the intelligent rocks called ‘Watchers’, which litter the abandoned space station you must navigate. The threat? For reasons I will not divulge, the Watchers have released a toxic gas that is fatal to humans, so naturally you must escape.
