Seattle, September 6th, 2010 - UTV Ignition Entertainment Ltd., a global publisher and developer of videogames, along with co-publisher Hothead Games, released a brand-new trailer and the first-ever gameplay video for Swarm , the award-winning action platformer launching worldwide on all platforms via digital channels in early 2011. The first video gives players a walkthrough of the brutally hilarious title, guided by Hothead’s Joel DeYoung, while the all-new trailer shows more of the hilarious and exciting ways the lovable yet daft Swarmites can be sacrificed…for the greater good, of course!
In Swarm, players take control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and must drive them through an intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle for a greater good. 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. With a unique combination of mass character control and fast action, the resulting brutal aftermath will make players want to play Swarm over and over again.
Swarm is being developed by Hothead Games and will be available early 2011 on all platforms via digital download.
