Online ant warfare just got classier.

Formicide is an intense, 2D, fast-paced multiplayer platformer featuring bloodthirsty ants. Think Worms meets Team Fortress 2. Choose a class and face off with teammates against enemies in destructible environments.

  • Online multiplayer. Blow up ants anywhere in the world.
  • Drop-in, drop-out servers. Join up into an in-progress game any time that's convenient for you.
  • Team based objectives. Control point beacons with your team to win the match.
  • Classes with varied playstyles: The tough soldier, the cloaking hunter, the chaotic fire ant, and more.
  • Unique environments. Swelter in the desert sun, climb through scenic or snowy mountains, or hold your breath with your tiny ant lungs to dive into a coral reef.
  • Destructible terrain. Demolish a path through the ground towards your enemies, or create barricades of dirt for protection!

Why Greenlight?

Formicide is a completely multiplayer experience - and now that we've been Greenlit, we can take advantage of Steam's account and content delivery systems! We believe this will improve Formicide's play experience tremendously, and we can't wait to get things patched up for it.
