A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Swordswallower is a surreal, psych-goth action platformer where players traverse and fight only by throwing their massive enchanted sword. The player can’t jump, instead launching their sword into the environment and pulling themselves toward it with tremendous force.

Really enjoyed this!

Very nice game.

awesome game! very fun

very cool!

Swordswallower is a cool platformer with an heavy blade to carry!

This was brilliant! I really liked the atmosphere of the game itself, the music was really fitting and I found the variety of being able to use the same couple moves for a bunch of different obstacles to be really clever and fun! 

Best game ever made.  

Is the game fully finished and needs no more updates from now on?
