As spring dawns the great thaw begins. Deep beneath the lush meadow grasses the queen stirs in her nest as the colony comes to life. Soldiers venture forth, battling centipedes while competing for territory with opposing colonies. Workers dig an ever-expanding network of tunnels as they search for food. As the first larvae hatch it is clear this generation will be different: the young colonies are rapidly evolving into a multitude of new forms, marching out to claim the meadow as their own. In this mid-range strategy game, each player takes the role of a newly formed ant nest seeking to achieve ecological dominance through expansion, conquest, or evolution. Coming to Kickstarter in April 2014!
March of the Ants is Weird City Games first full project. We are finalizing playtesting and graphic design and are very excited to be launching our Kickstarter campaign in April 2014. Our design goals for this game were to make a complex strategy game that was approachable, fun, interactive and with minimal set-up. With beautiful, original artwork and highly thematic gameplay, we are very excited to be publishing March of the Ants.
