Swinger model by Ben Wanat.[1]

The Swinger was an early prototype Necromorph developed for the original Dead Space. Due to time and budget constraints, the creature was eventually cut entirely from the game.

According to Ben Wanat, production designer and later creative director for the franchise, the creature was made up of two parts: the main body, and the tail part composed of two tentacles, which the Swinger would have used to swing across ceilings. Once the tail had been dismembered, the Necromorph would crash onto the ground, split into two and begin its chase to the player with its limbs. Similar to the Brute and the female Slasher (and the Spitter in the sequels and the remake), the Swinger was able to spit corrosive acid from sacs located in the creature's throat, which presumably acted as a weakpoint.[1]
