Lead your Ant Colony to Dominance!

The queen has landed. Wearied from her perilous flight she sheds her wings, burrows into the soft sand and begins to lay. The first children of the nomadic Formica Ereptor must grow quickly if they are to survive. Soon the ants will embark on a vast and treacherous journey through thick jungle and scorching desert. In the end, only one colony will dominate atop the pinnacle of the ancestral mating grounds and secure its place amongst the great empires of the undergrowth.

Game Features

Gameplay

Empires of the Undergrowth is a real time strategy game based around the world of ants. It features underground tunneling, nest construction and fast-paced battles with insects, arachnids and other ant colonies. We have taken inspiration from classics Dungeon Keeper and Sim Ant, as well as elements of Starcraft 2's popular 'Desert Strike' arcade game for colony vs colony combat

The game’s theme is taken directly from nature, and offers a fresh alternative to the usual sci-fi, fantasy and real-war settings for this genre. In the single-player campaign, the player takes control of a unique colony of DNA-harvesting, nomadic ants embarking on a great journey; they must set up temporary nests, gather food, and defeat neighbouring colonies. The story is narrated from the perspective of a documentary film maker studying the ants, adding a light touch of humour.
