Description

Empires of the Undergrowth is a real time strategy set in the world of ants. It features underground tunneling, nest construction and fast-paced battles with a variety of creatures and other ant colonies. We have taken inspiration from classics Dungeon Keeper and SimAnt, and crafted our own unique pheromone control system to stay true to how real-life ants work. The game is inspired by nature - offering a fresh alternative to the usual sci-fi, fantasy and historical settings for this genre. Playable missions are narrated from the perspective of a documentary film maker studying the ants, who offers intelligent insight into the goings-on of the colony and the undergrowth beyond. The primary game mode in early access is Formicarium, where you take ownership of a home colony of unique DNA-harvesting ants as they work to assimilate the desirable traits of their foes. You can upgrade them by playing one-off missions, sometimes with your home colony and sometimes with other ant species.
