Description

Star Swapper is space puzzle game with relaxing gameplay. Complete each level by moving and arranging symbols, so they form existing star constellations. As you progress the game introduces new space mechanics such as Wormholes or Red Giants. The game is conveniently divided into chapters and levels. Each level has a score system which depends on number of moves you make and the amount of time you finish a level in. The game encourages short game sessions. Focus and plan your moves.

Star Swapper was made with Unity technology.

Project History

Long time ago, there was an idea to make an awesome game having mostly rookies on board. The team was assembled during a social meeting at a karaoke club. The space puzzle genre was chosen and ideas were brainstormed. To get a better perspective the team discussed ideas for a space puzzles on a roof of a ten store building, under the stars of summer night with the best non-alcohol polish beer. (Hanging around on a roof is illegal by the way so don’t tell anyone ;-)) There was a lot of inspiring ideas: to use Nordic runes, to make ancient Egypt hieroglyphs in the sky or to use symbols from our favorite anime series ‘Dragon Ball’. Finally, we chose Greek alphabet as it was known to us all and allowed us to make the aim of the game clear to the player. The development process was not easy as mechanics and visual style changed many times. As with every game made by ambitious individuals, there were times when we would lively discuss certain details without coming to a compromise. We had found that leaving an issue for a few days would allow us to cool our emotions and approach the topic once again with a better solution.
Finally, we are very close to the game’s launch, and we want to deliver something that will blow your logic mind away.
