The long-awaited Fire Ant update releases today for our ant colony management game, Empires of the Undergrowth!


To celebrate the launch of the update, we have updated our demo to include The Promised Land, a previously exclusive demo level featuring Fire Ants.

This demo includes the opportunity to play as the tenacious fire ants in a new level. Excavate your nest, form floating pontoons to reach valuable resources and grow large enough to escape to "The Promised Land!"

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 your 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 victory.

This demo includes 4 underground-only levels from the game’s early development days and two more recent additions:

The Crucible! Take control of leafcutter ants, gather leaves to raise a brood whilst defending against troublesome spiny devil crickets and ferocious rove beetles!

The Promised Land! Command the fire ants to form floating pontoons to reach valuable resources, defend from the explosive bombardier beetle and grow large enough to escape your fate.

The Crucible and The Promised land are more full-featured, giving you the opportunity to dig out of your nest and explore the rainforest environment!

This looks awesome! Reminds me of the old book series "Empire of the Ants" (and of course good old SimAnt!)

Off to download the demo on Steam :)
