DeathSpank Developer Unveils 'Swarm'

A swarm of fifty adorable blue Swarmites is the star of DeathSpank and Penny Arcade Adventures developer Hothead Games new title Swarm, announced at E3.

"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," publisher Ignition explains. "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."

Swarm is scheduled for release in "early 2011" on "all platforms via digital channels," which in theory would mean PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii at least.
