Image & Form, the makers of the SteamWorld franchise, have revealed their next project for Nintendo Switch.
The company is bringing Anthill, a tower defense game about ants, from smartphones to Nintendo Switch. Anthill was originally released in 2011. No further details are known at this point, but it’ll be playable at PAX West 2018.
Here’s the smartphone version trailer and details:
Anthill is a gorgeous strategy game with an award-winning interface based on the real-world behavior of ants. By drawing pheromone trails, you direct your ground forces to different destinations, working with streams of units rather than individuals.
Similar to a tower defense game, your mission is to protect the hill as wave upon wave of enemy bugs are thrown at you.
- Tactical trail-defense based on the real-world behavior of ants!
- Eat what you kill: Slay a bug with your soldiers, then direct your workers to bring back the carcass for dinner. Yum!
- Surgical strikes: Direct bomber ants to perform air raids through hordes of bugs. Satisfaction guaranteed!
- Upgrades: Buy permanent upgrades for your troops! Turn your bombers into carpet bombers, inspire courage in your workers, and make your soldiers more brutal. Boo-ya!
