Swarm lets the player take control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and drive them through an intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle for a greater good. Throw your way through gauntlets of death and destruction in an attempt to collect valuable DNA and ensure that at least one Swarmite survives.

Swarm lets players take control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and drive them through an intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle of survival. Run, bash, huddle, boost, stack, jump, push and throw your way through gauntlets of death and destruction in an attempt to collect valuable DNA and ensure that at least one Swarmite survives.

Swarm is the first game to feature mass character control, where you move all 50 Swarmites at once.  Steer your swarm through the game and they naturally flock and flow around obstacles.  Creatively combine swarm moves to work your way through a relentlessly dangerous and hilariously brutal environment.  Compete against your friends to get the high score by deftly moving through the world and cleverly solving puzzles the game throws your way.

"Hothead's passion for creating games that are both approachable and dangerously addictive is unrivaled," said Nigel Fox, Head of Publishing for UTV Ignition Entertainment. "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."

"Figuring out new and creative ways of killing the Swarmites while making the game took the whole team to a pretty dark place," said Joel DeYoung, Producer of Swarm at Hothead Games. "After working on the game for the last year or so, we're really excited to share our insanity with the world. Let the blue squishy carnage begin!"

Swarm will be available on Xbox Live/PSN for 1200 Microsoft Points / $14.99, while PlayStation Plus members can purchase the title for $12.99.
