ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Army Antz is an Overview Real-time tactics game, that will be built with the Unity 3D engine. We are going with a Cartoon look for the game with toon shaded colors. Army Antz will feature lots of fun with single or multiplayer online play with many characters, each with their own class of weapons to choose from.
We want you to be able to play it on your big TV right from your iPhone or iPad with your family or friends using your Apple TV.
Our current goal is creating our finished project for the iPod/iPhone/iPad/Android. Then after port it to the PC/Mac, maybe one day on XBox, PS3 and Wii. We are asking for support to give us the opportunity to finish our game and produce more games in the near future.
The Background of Army Antz
Hey Kickstarter's, my name is Jonathan and I’m the designer of
Army Antz and this is how it all started. A cold snowy day just lying on the
couch surfing the web on my phone having a retro day of old 80's toys.
I came across these old "Army Ants" toys made by Hasbro that I used to play with as a child back in 1987. This stuck in the back of my head for a while. I also was checking out old Sega games and saw another one of my old favorite games I played every day called "General Chaos" made in 1994. This made a spark in my head and the idea of Army Antz started to come alive.
Jump into the park with Army Antz dressed as World War 2 soldiers. It's an all out war between Blue and Red Antz for supremacy over the park. Defeat the opposing antz to gain land and power for your home colony.
THE ART STYLE
We are doing a bright and colorful cartoon style with detailed art.
THE GAME PLAY
Our game will be a Real-time tactics game. The main objective is to take down the other team. You will be tapping away at the screen to direct your team further into the battlefield, but don't rush, cause if you don't strategize, you just might not make it back. Take out the other players weakest link or group your team up and take the biggest Ant down. It's an Onslaught War.
For the best example for game play check out "General Chaos" for Sega 1994.
