'The Swarm' (ALL) Canceled On PC

The Swarm is a 3D adventure game, full of action on 3rd view where the player will face the challenge of surviving in a wasted Moscow that shows the scars of the alien attack, defending himself from the attacks of other humans looking for a piece of food, and from the dangerous aliens.

Renamed into MorphX on the X360, the PC edition is said to have been canceled according to a PR rep for 505 Games, even though a Russian demo was released way back.

In MorphX, players emerge from an underground shelter to find their planet devastated following a hostile alien invasion. Outgunned and overpowered, it appears all efforts to fight the vicious aliens are futile. Players soon discover that the only way to defeat their enemies may be to become mutants themselves by absorbing alien DNA. As players morph into alien-human hybrids, their new powers give them advantages to battle the alien infestation.

While searching for an antidote to cure their allies, players have a variety of weapons-including firearms, clubs, plasma projectors and grenades -- for melee or ranged combat against enemies.  Additionally, players will solve mini-games and puzzles, allowing for the option to absorb new abilities that make them more adept at fighting tougher enemies. Players can then build and morph alien DNA chains to improve different abilities like an increased regeneration rate, or enhanced vision.

While on a mission to rescue their allies, the question remains: what is left of humanity to save?
