UTV Ignition Entertainment today announced that it has reached an agreement with Hothead Games to co-publish Swarm worldwide on all platforms via digital channels. Swarm has been unveiled via a short teaser trailer at E3 2010.
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. 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.
“UTV Ignition is excited to partner with Hothead Games on this fantastic title,” commented Nigel Fox, European Head of Publishing for UTV Ignition Entertainment. “Swarm is a brilliantly crafted, humorous and incredibly addictive title, of the high quality and creativity that is the cornerstone of our digital download strategy.”
“Swarm is very special to Hothead – it’s an idea we’ve nurtured for a while,” added Joel DeYoung, Director of Game Technology for Hothead Games. “We are excited to work with Ignition to make sure everyone hears about and ultimately gets a chance to play Swarm, Hothead’s next great game.”
Swarm is being developed by Hothead Games and will be available early 2011 across multiple platforms. To see the Swarm teaser trailer please visit the UTV Ignition booth at the E3 Expo 2010, booth number 4322 in the West Hall.
