Beetle Uprising

Entrant 2018


Breed for stats, looks, and abilities; then use your creations to dominate the entire vacant lot in this RTS/Genetic Simulation. Use fluid "swarm" combat tactics to gain control of resources vital to your colony's expansion and secure a genetic future for your swarm.

Beetle Uprising is centered on a detailed genetic simulation that drives both statistical and visual parameters for each beetle. The custom shader for the beetles allows the player to create practically infinite visual variety. Combat missions require coordination and strategy to use your swarms to overcome enemies and collect rewards, including new genetic material. You retreat to your nest to nurture your collection and make use of resources gathered in missions and tasks through the lot map.
