HOTHEAD’S RESIDENT PHD AND SWARM CREATOR, “DR. MIKE”, EXPLAINS HOW TO
CONTROL YOUR “SWARM”

Trust Him…He’s Doctorish!

Austin, Texas — January 20, 2011- Go ahead ask Dr. Mike . you know you
want to. Hothead Games has brought Swarm creator, Dr. Mike Hayward,
out of his dark and windowless office for a few short minutes to
explain how players can control their “Swarm” in this first edition of
“Ask Dr. Mike.”

Since Dr. Mike tends to speak in programming code without even
realizing it, Hothead brought in “man of the people” and “regular
guy”, Lead Designer, Pete Low, to bridge the gap and explain to us
laypeople the unique and fun way to control your Swarm. Swarm is the
upcoming and ultra addictive action game from UTV Ignition and Hothead
Games set to release early this year. Dr. Mike did his PhD research
in the field of artificial intelligence, and while his research didn’t
directly relate to causing the horrific deaths of little cute and
pudgy blue creatures, he has harnessed his work to realize that vision
in Swarm. In the newly released video, Dr. Mike shows us everything
from how to jump, group up, huddle and even stack and bash your
Swarmites.

Swarm gives players control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and drives
them through an intense and often suicidal battle of survival. Swarm
is the first game to feature mass character control, where players
move all the Swarmites at once. Steer the flock of pudgy, clueless
little blue morons through the game and they naturally flock and flow
around obstacles. Creatively combine swarm moves to work your way
through a relentlessly dangerous and hilariously brutal environment.
Compete against friends to get the high score by deftly moving through
the world and cleverly solving puzzles the game throws your way.
