Ignition’s Swarm looks like Pikmin had sex with Overlord

Ignition has announced that its rather interesting downloadable game Swarm is coming to XBLA and PSN early next year. It’s a game in which you control a titular swarm of cute little cretins called Swarmites in an “intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle of survival.”

The aim of the game is to use your swarm of fifty creatures to collect DNA. They can run, smash things, boost, huddle together, throw stuff and jump. We checked it out at PAX and quite liked it. 

Definitely looks cool and I can’t wait to check it out!
