If you have any plans for early 2011, I’d suggest rescheduling them. All of them. There are a ton of great PSN games with the current release date of “early 2011”, and now Swarm can be added to that list. We ran a preview of the game back in September when Chris and I saw it at PAX.

As a quick refresher, Swarm is an ‘action comedy game’ that allows players to take control of 50 fearless Swarmites and drive them through an intense, entertaining, and often suicidal battle of survival. The game runs something like Pikmin, except this time around your minions can run, bash, huddle, boost, stack, jump, push, and throw their way through gauntlets of death and destruction and ensure that at least one Swarmite survives. Joel DeYoung, Director of Game Technology for Hothead Games, said of Swarm “The Swarmits are both lovable and deliciously expendable at the same time – the game’s creation is proof positive of the dangers of excessive exposure to Saturday morning cartoons we were warned about so many years ago. Swarm is exactly the genocidal romp your parents hoped you’d grow up and marry someday.” Yeah, the bunch at Hothead are a pretty funny group.
