Swarm Announced

Hothead Goes Hands On with Two New Games at PAX announces DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue for consoles, as well as Swarm, which they say is due for all platforms. Word is: "Swarm is an action platformer like no other. Players control a herd of fifty daft, pudgy and utterly fearless Swarmites, driving them through an intense and often suicidal gauntlet of death and destruction. The game features innovative mass character control, fast-paced action and comic mayhem, offering players a unique experience that will keep them playing again and again." The Swarm Website has a "coming soon" message, but the PAX trailer for the game offers a look at its Pixar-style sensibilities. The embedded clip follows.

Swarm looks to be somewhat funny, but fuck Hothead games for making Deathspank only for consoles. Boycott for life.

Swarm actually looks like fun. I'm going to have to keep my eye on this.

just "Swarm" is a really bad name for a game - good luck trying to be found by anyone with a passing interesting via google, as the first 6000 results are for Alien Swarm or other Swarms.

Heck, trying to find that gameplay video on youtube will be fun ! If you search for Swarm the first 7000000 results are for Alien Swarm and some other swarm related things, like fish swarms, mosquito swarms and even locust swarms! awesome

Makers of this game = fail at naming things.

Also its not a swarm, its a horde
