It's Gamescom and we are here (digitally) as part of the Indie Arena Booth! To celebrate we are giving players the opportunity to try out fire ants for a limited time with a new demo level "The Promised Land!" The demo will be available until the end of Gamescom on August 29th.
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 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 levels and a new level, The Crucible! Take control of the new leafcutter ants, gather leaves to raise a brood whilst defending against troublesome spiny devil crickets and ferocious rove beetles!
This level gives a look at the surface and the new rainforest environment giving you a taste of what to expect in the full game experience.
