Drunk On Nectar is a Nature Sandbox game about animals, plants and ecology. Multiple game-modes allow you to play as a creatures, simulate ecosystems or challenge yourself on quests maps with leaderboards.
Multiplayer support is planned for 2018.
DoN aims to provide the most comprehensive nature experience gaming has ever seen. To this end, the game has been built at invertebrate-scale (a 0.1 mm accurate micro world) for an unprecedented level of detail. Plants in DoN are not flat props but living, growing entities that flower, pollinate and propagate across seasons like real plants. Finally, each species has unique gameplay depending on its morphology.
The current release features eight invertebrate species:
Plants are first-class citizens in DoN and expected to play an increasingly important role over time.
Additional species of animals, plants and ecological phenomena are planned for addition once the game's EA goals (read above) have been met. You are welcome to vote for a creature or plant you're excited about for addition in the community forums!
Originally planned as an NPC to support the Jumping Spider's lifestory, the inimitable Japanese Tiger Beetles have strong-armed (or indeed, mandible'd!) their way into Drunk On Nectar's roster as a fully playable creature.
By far the fastest creature in the game, check out their antics below!
The forest floor will never be the same again when an expert grappler, climber and strategist such as the Jumping Spider is inevitably brought into confrontation with a blindingly swift, fearless and dazzling warrior as the Tiger Beetle. Throw a supreme aviator into the mix in the form of a Dragonfly Common Hawker and DoN's 3-way power dynamic among its predators is hopefully clear.
The Dragonfly has the aerial advantage, but will need to frequently perch on the ground to rest, to feed, to groom, you know the routine. And when it does, it has not one, but two adversaries happily waiting for it.
Now spawn creatures by their lifestage! Build v3.1.3 brings a new feature to the Population Editor allowing you to design for a map full of nymphs, for example, first-instar/nymph Grasshoppers/Caterpillars/Jumping Spiders/etc. Over time more features will be added to the Sandbox too.
You can now enter numeric seeds for Random Maps or reuse seeds from your favorite random maps in a subsequent play session.
Two new music tracks were added to the game with the Tiger Beetle release taking the total number of original music tracks in the game to 10. Add the latest music track "Sapphire Sprint" into the mix (featured in the video above) and there will soon be eleven for the swift one with the next update!

That's it for this update, but here are some GIFs to give you a closer look at a creature that doesn't stay in one place for too long!
PS: Fwiw the Australian Tiger Beetles are said to be the fastest among Tiger Beetles, but the game has chosen to depict the Japanese one on account of its indisputably striking looks! :)
