It’s Swap Sword! A knife-sharp adventure through a brutal world of puzzling bushido. Swap Sword takes the familiar landscape of a match-3 puzzle game and cuts in the tactical challenge of a roguelike-style battlefield. When pitted against a monstrous army over ever-changing terrain, will you be able to draw your sword before you draw your last breath?
AP Thomson and Diego Garcia were both game design instructors and alumni at the NYU Game Center in Brooklyn, New York. Both had designed games that were supported by the NYU Game Center Incubator: the IGF award winning Beglitched and the critically acclaimed Sunburn! In January 2015, AP built a small prototype that combined a traditional match-3 style puzzle game with a tactical roguelike. Seeking to expand the prototype in scope and appeal, AP recruited Diego to the project and the two of them spent the next year developing Swap Sword into the game it is today.
- UNSHEATH YOUR WITS - Swap to kill, match to dispatch, but don’t get caught with your sword down.
- CAST AWAY FEAR - Build a custom arsenal of spells to defeat your monstrous opponents and march toward victory.
- TRAVEL THE WORLD - Journey through mines, valleys, and beyond — each space filled with unique features and clever opponents waiting to strike you down.
- REAP GOLDEN REWARDS - Collect treasure, amass points, and compare your score with friends.
- It is a good game!
