Welcome, soldier.
The Mission

Good old boots-on-the-ground action in a futuristic first person shooter

The war is over, but your mission has just started. Many of the military drones have gone rogue in a desert town and you've been assigned to eliminate them. You fight off wave after wave of attack-drones in this fast-paced action game. How long can you survive?

About the Developer

Hi, my name is Emile Ferreira.
I'm a 17 year old game developer and software engineer based in Cape Town, South Africa.

I created Swarm© as a quick two-week project, just to demonstration my skills as a young game developer. I started development whilst working on another - much bigger - game and was able to re-use much of the models and code from it. The rest of the assets I created in the two weeks or bought from an asset store.

The game concept came from a quote by fellow South African, Elon Musk: "With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon". If it does well I'll release an update with more content or simply create a sequel. However, it'll always remain free-to-play. That is a promise.

Special mentions:
James Hilton-Barber - gameplay trailer editing
Dyln De Villiers - game testing and brainstorming
Micah Friesen - recording gameplay footage

The other game mentioned - Light Bringer© - has been in development for the past 7 months. It's an open-world, 3rd person, action game set in South Africa. Find out more at playlightbringer.com
