Formicide Announced

Rock Wall Games announces development of Formicide, a 2D multiplayer platformer featuring bloodthirsty ants inspired by games such as Quake, Unreal Tournament, Worms, and Liero. The plan is to release this next year for Windows, and they are running a Greenlight campaign to get the game onto Steam. Here's a livestream trailer showing off gameplay and a newer teaser trailer with more, and here's a feature list:

  • Online multiplayer. Blow up ants anywhere in the world.
  • Multiple game modes. Deathmatch, capture the flag, and more.
  • Dozens of weapons. Blow your colleagues away with guided seeker missiles, or get up close and personal with a shiv.
  • Tons of skins. The age-old question of what a fight between a pirate ant and a cowboy ant would look like is finally answered.
  • Unique environments. Ever wanted to be able to use a flamethrower underwater? Now you can, for some reason!
  • Destructible terrain. Terrain is destructible!
  • Fully moddable. Modify any part of the game, including weapons, maps, game modes, player skins, and basically anything else.
