New demo introducing cutscenes and swimming kickboards
  • We are working on new transitions between each level and added short cutscenes displayed randomly. They replace the previous "win/lose" window. When you lose the level is now restarted immediately.
  • We added a level to introduce a new NPC using swimming kickboards (level 10)
  • Level 8 now has a smoother introduction to levels with multiple pools
  • Various bugfixes and tweaks

Download now the new demo (v0.42) on Windows, Mac and Linux and tell us what you think of these changes.

Release date: Summer 2017
Swim Out is a strategic, turn-by-turn puzzle game where you control a swimmer who wants to get out of a pool, a river or the sea without touching any swimmers.

Get out of the pool without touching any swimmers !

"I am delighted by how unfamiliar a swimming experience this is to me" - Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"There are precious few things I appreciate more than a straightforward puzzle game with a strong commitment to its aesthetic, and Swim Out is exactly that" - Waypoint[]

You must plan each move to avoid contact with any other swimmer. You can pick up balls and buoys and throw them to other swimmers, use dipnets, waterguns, and even ride a kayak!
However many elements will make your journey harder: divers, boomerang throwers, fishermen, water-bombing kids, crabs, large waves, jellyfishes, ... the water is filled with dangers!

For Windows, Mac and Linux.
Swim Out is planned to be released this summer.

  • 100+ levels split into 6 chapters combining :
    • 16 different types of swimmers : learn the way each of them is moving from the simple breaststroke swimmer to the more complex diver
    • 12 different items to use or throw at other swimmers
    • 9 disruptive environment elements (waves, crabs, fishes, jellyfishes, …)
  • Swim in 3 different environments : swimming pools, rivers and sea with their own graphical and audio style and gameplay specifics
  • Enjoy full-controller support
  • Available on Windows, Mac and Linux

Some swimmer behaviours examples :

  • breaststroke swimmers move one tile per turn and turn back at the end of the pool :

  • nasty kids doing water bombs will freeze you with their waves :

  • backstroke swimmers move once every two turns :

  • divers are more complex :

  • crabs alternatively move left and up :

Development is not finished yet but we have a demo of the first levels so that you can have an idea of the gameplay and the aesthetic of the game.
