A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

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.

The player must think about each move to avoid contact with any other swimmer. He 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 his journey harder: divers, boomerang throwers, fishermen, water-bombing kids, crabs, large waves, jellyfishes, … the water is filled with dangers!

"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

Swimming it out! Wish there was more levels.

Ellooo! Had a really fun time so with the demo :3 you can see how much I struggle with puzzle games in my Let's play of it! Will be finishing the demo in a few days <3

Hi! This game is a really cool game! I like the concept of the game and would be awesome if more features are added and I made a video on youtube in INDONESIAN! Check it out! TERIMA KASIH!

Really liked this little game. A great concept with simple art that's pleasing to the eye. Kudos!

A really fun little game, I didn't expect much from this game but it was actually really fun. I don't normally play these types of games but I thought I'd try something new, and it payed off. Would love to see much more in the full release!

Thanks for your video. Glad you like it !

Not a bad game, I'm not usually a puzzle player, but the fresh theme and non-violent gameplay is refreshing.

Thanks !
