Swarm has Gone Gold and Gets A Release Date

UTV Entertainment and Hothead Games had announced today that their downloadable title Swarm has gone gold for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. The title will launch in North America and Japan on March 22nd for 1200 Microsoft Points and for $14.99 on PlayStation Network. PlayStation Plus members can pick up Swarm for $12.99. Swarm will launch worldwide on Xbox Live Arcade on March 23rd and in Europe for the PlayStation Network on March 30th.

“Hothead’s passion for creating games that are both approachable and dangerously addictive is unrivaled,” said Nigel Fox, Head of Publishing for UTV Ignition Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see how much players will enjoy all the content we’ve managed to pack into a downloadable title, and we’re confident this will be the best death-enhanced platformer players will get their hands on in a long
time.”

Swarm allows you to control 50 little pudgy blue “Swarmites” and guide them through brutal environments; saving as many as possible in this action-platformer that appears to be as addicting as they come.

“Figuring out new and creative ways of killing the Swarmites while making the game took the whole team to a pretty dark place,” said Joel DeYoung, Producer of Swarm at Hothead Games. “After working on the game for the last year or so, we’re really excited to share our insanity with the world.  Let the blue squishy carnage begin!”
