Based on the best-selling book by Frank Schatzing! Around the world, researchers are confounded by a mystery: strange organisms are appearing in coastal waters and whales are behaving oddly. Is it all by chance -- or are they signs of an impending catastrophe? At stake is the survival of the Earth's fragile ecology - and ultimately, the survival of the human race itself! In The Swarm, players are tasked to discover the cause by setting up research stations and sending out ships in order to fathom out the secret from the ocean's depths.
