You are Ruffy, the Chosen One. And you have the SWAP!

With the SWAP, you can change the entire game world - the way you imagine it and the way it should be! Use the SWAP to turn ice into lava or to transform a waterfall into a climbing vine. With the SWAP you can overcome any obstacle and solve any puzzle:

> You need a boat? Swap a stone to wood and it floats like a raft.
> A stone wall blocking your way? Swap it to wood and turn it into rubble - the way is clear!
> You want to sneak into the farm in the dark? Swap the sun to the moon and night falls!
> The flying fish won't leave you alone? Swap them to stone and make them crash.

The SWAP just feels magical! There's really nothing cooler than SWAPPING your wishes into the world!

Hey, and best of all, the SWAP is super easy! You've probably used it many times already - it works just as easy as Copy&Paste. Grab a texture and throw it onto an object and watch the magic: The texture will change the object.
Copy&Paste in the real world! Isn't that amazing? Like we said, the SWAP is magic, but use it wisely, young Chosen One!

Jump forward a few years and I found Zockrates on Twitter and discovered that he is making this cool new game. It looks to be pretty fun with that intriguing new "swap texture" element! Zockrates has been developing the game for over five years now and it is due to release this year, 2024 :-).

Added to my Steam wishlist. Definitely interested by the art style.

Yeah, it looks decent, doesn't it? Originally the art had more of a "pencil drawn" look and that was neat, but I like this latest colourful appearance, too.

The idea of swapping textures around to solve puzzles is interesting. It seems like most object textures can be swapped.

Zockrates had been X-ing (Tweeting) a few clips and it looks like this is coming along very well.
