Beetle breeding video showing the biologically accurate simulation of genetics in Beetle Uprising. Also good if you just want to brush up on your microbiology!

Posted by on

Beetle Uprising features a surprisingly complex breeding with a genetics system very much inspired by how things work in the real world. In the past, we didn’t draw too much attention to it because we weren’t sure whether players would really be interested in features that were borderline biology simulation tools. In retrospect, this may have been a mistake as this is the main thing that really makes Beetle Uprising unique.

To help players get stuck into the genetics simulation side of things, we’ve produced a breeding tutorial video that goes through the art of breeding beetles for superior stats. It can be a bit daunting at first, but don't worry if it doesn't all sink in first time - the system is designed so that only a basic understanding of it can still produce great results.

Even if you’re not much into beetles, you might want to watch a long for a quick Biology lesson regardless!
