“We’ve double checked everything. Each saw blade has been finely sharpened, every bear trap has been sprung as tightly as possible,” said Joel DeYoung, Producer of Swarm at Hothead Games. “The gas canisters are full, the electricity is charged, every bomb is armed, and the acid is suitably corrosive. We are now putting the Swarmites into the capable hands of players.”
Well, that says it all really. Poor Swarmites. Swarm, the game that challenges players to guide flocks of clueless Swarmites through maxes of death-dealing devices from Hothead Games, is available today on Xbox360, for 1200 MSPoints, and for PS3 on March 30th at £9.99.
“Swarmites have an ability to evoke gleeful chortles of doom with their daft expressions and sheer willingness to die in hilarious ways,” said Nigel Fox, Head of Publishing for UTV Ignition. “The key to creating a great game like Swarm is in its addictiveness and Hothead has managed to pull that off—the last thing you want to do is put down your controller.”
