January 2016 Dev Update

Over January we began our move into the Unreal Engine 4 focusing at first on the Underground section of the game.

This included basic AI, the underground tiles, resource gathering, construction, egg laying and development.

We will be releasing development videos each month so you can keep up with our progress, the first is below and describes what we did in January.

We will be at EGX Rezzed this year in London on the 7th – 9th of April, so if you can make it please do say hello and have a play on our first playable build of the game.

We are returning to Kickstarter at the end of April and there will be lots more information and videos then. More about that later this month.

This Weeks Focus – The Fire Ant

The fire ant packs quite a punch, you would not want to be attacked by their acidic venom!

Solenopsis Invicta - Fire Ant

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!

African Driver Ant

One of our true monsters in the game! The African Driver will make short work of its foes with the huge jaws, perfect for crushing wouldn’t you say?

Check back tomorrow to see what these miniature terrors have in store in the natural world!
