Help make this game a reality!
Description
Release date: TBD
The Colony focuses on exploration, cooperation, and the never-ending quest to become the greatest colony in the land!

Start the colony of your dreams by choosing the right location and giving birth to your own little ant army!

Expand and grow your colony by finding resources and creating pheromone trails for your workers to follow! Customize your base by digging into the ground, setting up a perimeter of traps and structures, and warding off would-be intruders to your glorious ant empire!

Survive. Giant spiders, starvation, natural disasters, other ants, and many other challenges stand between you in your colony’s quest to reign supreme. What lengths will you go to protect you and your own?

Attract specialized ants to your colony to provide unique weapons, armor, and abilities to your colony! Explosives and collateral damage suit your tastes? Spawning a fireant with a healthy supply of X should do the trick. A stealthy, stab-you-in-da-back, play style more your cup of tea? First off, I hate you, and secondly; Yes, we have that too.

Treat and wage war with other any colonies to achieve mastery over your domain. Anything goes. The Colony supports a massive multiplayer arena where players grow their colonies, create alliances, and conquer each other over resources to become the last standing colony!

Gain experience and unlock new colony skins and achievements! Your deeds in battle won’t be forgotten.

Honestly the gif thumbnail/icon really undersells this project. It only has a few frames, so implies that the game has a really choppy framerate. I'd recommend replacing it with smoother gif, or even a still image.


The game looks pretty original and fun. I like the insect/micro aesthetic, and think it could be a good spin on the survival genre.

btw is this also survival?

Good concept, but I think you need to make some of the insects a little bit stronger (more hp)

Cool! It will be a good game!

I like the concept, but I think it'd be better if you used the facts that you control ants more. Why would an ant need a hatchet? Its got badass mandibles!

looks really cool. Please get different music though, everyone has heard that song.
