Swarm! It's been a while since I've seen or heard anything about this.  
 
EDIT: What a goofy looking game. Also, very refreshing to just let dudes die and not worry about it at all. Downloading this day one.

Holy shit, I laughed way too loudly when the arrow pierced the dude's head. 
Caught me completely by surprise. 
 
 Edit: Wow, this game is awesome. 

Posted by MisterSamMan

Haha, looks awesome!

Why would they kill that poor thing? It's just cruel.
 
Edit: The game looks fun as heck and the QL itself is fun and not awkward or boring like many QL EXes.

Oh, okay, so THIS is a murder simulator.

12th QL. - Looks pretty nice.

This looks fucking Great!

the swarmites remind me of the imp from Zero Punctuation. Also, I love when their eyes dilate.

This may be the most excited I've been for a Hothead game yet. I thought Deathspank and the Penny Arcade: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness games were pretty good, but they mostly gave the vibe of a studio that had more potential than those titles were showing. I really like what is happening in the downloadable game space. Not to mention that with Stacking, Torchlight, Beyond Good & Evil HD, and now Swarm coming out so soon, this may be an even better year for XBLA games this year than last.

Actually looks really cool. But I said the same thing for Death Spank and got bored really quick once I played it.

Man, this actually looks really, really good.

The swarm physics, the way they flow around objects and stack on top of each other, is really fun to watch. Chasing points seems incidental to the joy of procedural mayhem.

Posted by Pop

this game is awesome and I never knew that scream had a name.

Posted by BrianP

"Progressive Death Medal"! Fucking love it!

Posted by RoyCampbell

This was hilarious.

Posted by DeadFish

Wow, really impressed by this. Now I just wish there was a PC version. :/

Ryan Davis is an absolutely sadistic bastard

Posted by Gizmo

An interesting looking game. I'll definately be giving the trial a go.

Posted by jimb0

Yeesh! I can dig this.

Posted by drew327

This looks great- I hope you can watch replays off the leaderboard.

Posted by Twinblade34

 loved the menu death animations, freaking hilarious.

Posted by GoneWacko

I like how he didn't respond whatsoever to Ryan's mentioning of Pikmin so shortly after saying "this is a style of gameplay players really haven't experienced before".

Posted by kickinthehead

Awesome! When I heard it compared to lemmings I was worried it'd be similar in format, but if it's platform/action based like this it looks like a lot of fun! Great comic timing on the animations.

Posted by fox01313

Love the menu with it's own brand of mayhem, game looks awesome & if it's coming to XBLA I know I'll get it.

Posted by Th3_James

I will play this.

Posted by Bonsai

I really want to play this-NOW.
 
Also to compound on Ryans comment about them being indifferent right before the die making them endearing. I think the endearment comes from both the indifference before AND after they die.

Posted by Nadafinga

Matter of factly: "They die all the time."
 
This game looks like a lot of fun.

Posted by SpartanAmbrose

There's so much to love about this game. I hope everyone picks it up when it's released. I know I will.

Posted by Nytrik

I want this.

Fuck. What a surprise. This looks really cool.

Posted by yyZiggurat

Looks like a very fun game 

Posted by Vorbis

Looks cool, noticed he pretended not to hear the anti-pikmin comment, wonder if they are trying to avoid that labelling.
