Will you be able to herd the Swarmites in Swarm

Hothead Games are very pleased to announce that Swarm has now gone gold; from the developers of the loveable downloadable DeathSpank, Hothead Games' newest title Swarm is a new take on the mindless character survival genre that contains a few select titles.

If you are unfamiliar with the game, Swarm gives players the control of 50 fearless Swarmites, its basically Lemmings but far more brutal. You will steer the flock of cute little brainless morons through the game as they flow naturally around obstacles. By combining Swarm moves you will have to work your way through the brutally relentless environments, in one of the first games to feature mass character control on such a huge scale.

“Hothead’s passion for creating games that are both approachable and dangerously addictive is unrivalled,” said Nigel Fox, Head of Publishing for UTV Ignition. “We can’t wait to see how much players will enjoy all the content we’ve managed to pack into a downloadable title, and we’re confident this will be the best death-enhanced platformer players will get their hands on in a long time.”

The best thing about Swarm however is not found in completing the game, but working against it, and seeing just how many new and creative ways you can kill your hopelessly unaware little friends.
