Empires of the Undergrowth: Rise of the Colony is a simulation-style strategy game giving you the possibility to control an ant colony. Finally a good looking ant-based game is being developed and you can back it now on Kickstarter. While the £10,000 goal is reached, you can still pledge in order to help the developers reach their £12000 stretch goal, which will result in an unlockable ant species being included in the game. You can even vote which species you’d like to see as the unlockable species: the dracula ant (Adetomyrma venatrix) or the bullet ant (Paraponera clavata).
Both a Steam and a DRM free version of the game will available. To me, the game looks rather realistic, so I think it will please me and other ant enthousiasts.
