Did Sony read our list of 2013’s best games, or something? Last week they announced a release date for the PS4 version of Towerfall, and today they’ve announced that The Swapper will be coming to the Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita in May. And that’s with cross-buy, meaning a single purchase will unlock the game on all three systems.
Sci-fi platformer The Swapper made two of our 2013 year-end lists for one simple reason: it’s really good! As Lana Polansky wrote in her review for Paste, it “does what good science fiction is supposed to do: create an exaggerated, futuristic scenario to examine questions that concern us now.” The Swapper exploits our expectations of videogames to make us think about heady topics like memory and existence, and soon you’ll be able to play it on the Vita when your car is stuck in an ice storm. That’s good news.
