Play as Monarch Caterpillars!

Monarch Caterpillars are now the latest species to arrive in Drunk On Nectar!

Download the latest patch on Steam and enjoy being a 1mm sized caterpillar hatching from a tiny egg and metamorphosing into a plump adult!

Gameplay Video

For those who haven't purchased the game yet here's some caterpillar gameplay for you:

Please consider purchasing the game on Steam to support DoN's ongoing development!


Looking Ahead

The final metamorphosis from a fifth-instar-caterpillar to the adult butterfly is still pending. That will be released next week.

Further ahead, mating of male and female butterflies will arrive in the game! As a female butterfly you shall win by successfully laying fertilized eggs on a suitable hostplant (Milkweeds for Monarchs) for the next generation to thrive. Male butterflies will have a similar victory condition.

Beyond that, Grasshoppers, Multiplayer support, more land creatures and freshwater ecosystem addition are planned for the near, mid and distant horizon respectively.

For now I leave you with a pic of Monarchs hurriedly ambling down a plant stalk to fatten up for their upcoming pupation into a chrysalis and beyond!

Thanks for reading :)
