I have been working on added some stuff to the eotugame.com site. It is not up yet but tomorrow there will be an additional unit and a Gameplay section. This section will give people an idea about how the game will play.
We have also added a load of animated gifs to imgur. Check out the album here:
ALSO we have a page in IndieDB. Probably nothing you have not heard before but you may want to take a look none the less.
I am going to lose track of all these pages we have everywhere!
ALSO we have news articles written about us:
It is really exciting that so may people appear to want this game as much as we do. We have received a lot of really nice comments and we are thankful for them all. We have put a lot of work into this game but this really makes it feel worth it. Onwards!
I took some time today to add a few screen shots to the game website. I shall go over them and explain what they are. They are on the main game website at http://www.eotugame.com but also here.
Crystal Rift played with a VR headset.
We had a great time at EGX. We got to speak to a load of other indie developers and had a go at their titles. I particularly enjoyed having a go on EITR and getting completely destroyed by the boss on the demo level. I am a massive fan of both the souls series and Diablo so this little indie game was right up my alley.
I also tried out Crystal Rift with a VR headset. It is great fun and I cannot wait till the day I can pick up a VR headset of my own.
We had the opportunity to chat to different publishers and we learned a few things by going to a series of workshops. Needless to say the future looks bright generally.
Yes we have been unusually quiet this past week. We will try and post things but there will be a little lull until the last week of the month.
But do not fear it is not because we are not doing anything… in fact it is the opposite we are working harder than ever! Reason being we are attending EGX on the 24th and 25th and so we are getting together a game build and preparing promotional material. By the moths end there should be much more available here for you to sink your teeth in to, and in the following month the main site will get an update as well!
Build-able in two very different ways, in our game the fire ant can act as a temporary shield for your other ants or it can be a brief but intense attack in an area.
Keep up with our progress and follow us on Facebook.
This painful ant is well know for its sting, it is also incredibly numerous. A terrifying combination!
Get the update faster and follow us on twitter, we are frequently posting there.
Hope those English amongst us had a good bank holiday, I know we did. Just a brief one to let you know how it is going.
The fire ant packs quite a punch, you would not want to be attacked by their acidic venom!
The fire ant is the first specialist unit we have mentioned, and they work quite differently to the other units we have spoke about. To find out more about the special mechanics of this unit and the facts from nature, check back later this week!
And to keep up with our latest announcements follow us on twitter!
The leaf cutter is the tank of Empires of the Undergrowth. Large and imposing it will taunt enemies around it forcing them to focus on it and ignore the other ants around.
Check us out on Stomt we often have in depth development discussions there and would be happy to hear any feedback.
Hello everybody! Quick dev update here.
So in the past week Liam has been sinking his teeth into the code. He has been exploring ant positioning and calculating ways to spread the ants out often to hilarious outcome. He assures me he has improved it since, but below is one of his early formation algorithms. Joy!
