About: "Your queen has set up home beneath a rotting log. She is fat, and vulnerable. Her first brood will need
to move quickly if the colony is to survive. Their priority now is to find food, and there is plenty around; but
there are other hungry creatures in the undergrowth. The workers will need to be vigilant."
Empires of the Undergrowth is an ant colony management game, in a fast-paced real-time strategy style.
The player excavates their nest underground, constructing tunnels and chambers to store food and raise
brood. On the surface, the ants claim territory, gather resources, overwhelm fearsome arachnids and
clash with other colonies. Nest design, army size, composition and attack timing are key to securing
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.
