The world of Swarm revolves around a flock of 50 blue bipedal creatures, dubbed “swarmites,” and their quest to collect DNA in order to save their race. The player controls the swarmites as a collective, but each swarmite has individual intelligence, meaning that interaction between the player and the swarm is always dynamic. The game was received well by critics with aggregate scores in the 70% range for both platforms at GameRankings. Powerhouse developed the video game cinemas and other art elements for the interactive game primarily using Photoshop and After Effects.
