1) Leafcutter Animations
Matt's been working on the animations for our fungus farmers. Check out that leaf cutting action too!

2) Development Montage

A video montage of some "development tests" for our the upcoming Leafcutter update!


1. The music sounds amazing.
2. The male scientist sounds like he's officially gone completely insane. Did he oust the female one or something? It sounds like a coup.
3. Do leaves regrow after being harvested?

Edit: What are those snipping sounds in the background of his monologue?

I also have a few questions...

Does each square on that grid represent a place a plant can be placed down?

Will minors have to "process" the leaves before giving them to the fungus?

Will the size of the ant determine how big a piece of leaf they can bring back?

That's the old music for the original IOS version, We must bring it back!!!


I think he was digging through the formicarium Serafine

^ confirmed. Scientist using a trowel to dig - reasons as yet unknown.

Where did you see him digging!?

You can hear the sound of a trowel during his monologue.
I think the next formicarium challenge will involve a rival colony, and he's digging around in that one. I don't think the devs would allow him to dig in yours and mess up that precious layout. Maybe he's moving an enemy queen, or knocking down a "stone" block releasing the rest of an enemy colony.

Oh thanks, I missed that before.

I am scared for the sanity of that scientist if he is doing that.
Ants are beautiful,
but if fooled around with,
can be deadly.

There seems to be a chamber called "refuse chamber" if you pause the video at about 16 seconds in (it caught my eye so I entered slow motion and went back to find it, I would go to the slowest motion possible). So there will be garbage chambers now? Or do you guys just label the Queen's brood chamber as that?

Spoilers! But yeah, basically. Subject to change of course as we go forward.

Just a little note to apologise for the lack of SSS this week - guys have been really busy getting the last of the voice lines recorded! Normal service shall resume next week.

So will all species be getting refuse chambers (all of them produce waste, right?)? Even if not, I'm super pumped for this increase in realism!
