The natural world is but a simulation of flora and fauna entwined in a glorious dance for growth, survival and propagation. So too is this game.
Immerse yourself in a soul-stirring simulation of plant and animal life at a scale unparalleled in gaming before. Take control of legions of insects from a variety of species and set forth into a harsh ever-changing world teeming with rich floral life aand creatures with unique skills and life stories. Plants and insects in DoN are not mere visual props, but living entities that grow in real-time from say a seed to sapling or from a chrysalis to a beautiful butterfly.
From the tropical climes of dry summers and wet monsoons to temperate climates of spring, summer, autumn and winter, DoN models the ecology and lifecycles of various species, weather changes, seasonal changes, day and night activity changes for nocturnal, diurnal or crepescular creatures - all painstakingly crafted for creating a rich world with few limits!
Here's the current roster of creatures. More animals (and plants!) will be added over time!

I’m Venugopalan Sreedharan, an aspiring game dev from India and the sole developer of Drunk On Nectar. DoN began with a simple dream; to allow players to wander amidst nature as one of its subtle winged beauties - the insect pollinators. Over time the potential for all encompassing Nature and ecology simulation was clear; thus began Drunk On Nectar's grand conquest of the gaming world!
Tall woody stemmed Milkweed plants have arrived in Drunk On Nectar opening up the vertical dimensions for the gameplay, visuals and more. It takes nearly a minute to climb as a creature all the way from the base of milkweed to the apex!
The Sandbox mode has gotten new content in this update! You can now plant (or spawn would be the right word) Fifth-Instar caterpillars, caterpillar eggs, Monarch butterflies and mature plants (Milkweeds/Orange Lilies/Fern) from your creation dashboard.
See for yourself in this quick video!
Here are some notable Milkweed adventures snapped up from DoN's world!
