Swarm (update: Now with Deathspank and Penny Arcade) 20 Mar, 2008, 18:49 / 6 comments

Have you ever heard of Swarm? It's the working title of a video game in development by Hothead Games, which you all know to be the cradle of Ron Gilbert's Evil (tm). We had no reason to report on it before, but now that we do I should urge you all to go check out what little info there is on the game, including a delicious Pixar-like trailer. I'm not sure if Ronzo's "Creative Director" position means he has a hand in this game - and I'm sure his hands are full with Penny Arcade and Deathspank, and even Ronzo only has two hands and three eyeballs - but it's really worth checking-out. Head over to the game's official page as well.

JP Update: More Hothead news with a lovely big interview with Joel DeYoung and Ron Gilbert over at Adventure Gamers. No "Swarm" but plenty of Penny Arcade and Deathspank

    Should we really be posting about all of Hothead's games now?

    Well, it's hard to say. But with Ron Gilbert as Creative Director of Hothead Games, there's certainly a certain amount of connection with our topic matter.

    Remember, once this entire site was pretty much JUST Lucasarts. Don't be afraid to branch out more.

    All hail Gabzo and his holy cup of Early Grey!

    Thought I'd mention it. I won't bring it up again till it's released.

    I don't see any harm when the game looks as cool as that!
