The global publisher and developer of video games, UTV Ignition Entertainment, has announced the agreement between them and Hothead Games to co-publish a game entitled Swarm around the world on all the available platforms throughout digital channels.
Swarm is game in which the player can take control of fifty utterly fearless Swarmites and then drive them through an entertaining (and often suicidal) battle for the greater good. The player will have the ability to run, bash, huddle, boost, stack, jump, throw and push his way through destruction, while collecting valuable DNA and ensuring that at least one of those Swarmite survives. Swarm is expected to have a high replayability thanks to its unique combination of mass character control and quick action.
“UTV Ignition is delighted to be able to partner with Hothead Games to bring this title to market” commented Nigel Fox, President European Publishing for UTV Ignition Entertainment. “Swarm is a high quality and incredibly creative title, and it is that level of quality and creativity that is the basis 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 developed by Hothead Games and is expected to release in early 2011 on multiple platforms.
