We're always talking about how much we love when a developer takes a tried and true gameplay mechanic and slaps some RPG elements on top of it. Games like Dungeon Raid or 10000000 are just a couple of examples of the formula working really well. However, I don't think I would have ever thought to take the pipe-fitting puzzle mechanics of Pipe Dream and blend it with an RPG, but that's basically what the upcoming SwapQuest is all about, and it's such a brilliant fit I can't believe I haven't seen it done before. The trailer for SwapQuest pretty much speaks for itself, so give it a look.

If your interest is piqued, there is a ton more information in the game's forum thread, including tons of animated .gifs that show off all the nifty animations and great pixel art in SwapQuest. The character progression sounds really deep too, with two playable characters and five different classes to choose from, not to mention lots of unique character abilities which haven't been divulged yet. There's still quite a bit left to do before SwapQuest is completed, but developer Rebusmind is shooting for a release around May. Keep your eye on this one.

    Following it on the upcoming thread it sounds good

  • Suji

    the idea and concept looks new and good, hopefully the controls are smooth since you need to keep swapping paths, and the graphics could be smoother or more refined i like pixel graphics but it might look bad on retina

    Frankly speaking that RPG games feels me too boring sometime to play them and deal with them. But, I am excited about Swapquest this year and looking forward to some interesting elements to play in this game.
