Patch 1.1.00 // THIRD PATCH! A BIG ONE!

BIG UPDATES:
> Swarm Queen now contains an "evolution" upgrades tree! Customize your Queen by spending the stars that you get from completing levels!
> 3 additional challenge levels have been added!
> Hat. HAT. THERE'S A HAT. THERE'S A F***ING HAT!!!

MISC CHANGES:
> The "challenge levels" menu has been redesigned.

BALANCE CHANGES:
> Neurotoxin deals +2 damage, but it won't make ground minions run away for nearly as long.
> Skitterbug cost reverted back to 30 from 33.
> Smartbug Launchers and Siege Caterpillars have slightly shorter range.
> The enemy should be slightly better at dealing with "smartbug"-shooting minions
> Level 5: Enemy no longer has access to Neurotoxin.
> Level 6: Enemy no longer has access to Spewers.
> Level 7: Enemy no longer has access to Skitterbugs.
> Level 8: Enemy no longer has access to Bio-Nuke.

BUG FIXES:
> The extra nectar granted in certain Challenge Levels will no longer carry over into regular levels.
> The extra nectar gathered by enemy harvesters in hard mode will no longer apply to challenge levels.
> Goop Slug and the Nuke organ will now properly "purple-out" when you can't afford to mutate eggs into them.
> Changed "less minions" to "fewer minions" because that's how to language the words more good like.

> stealth update v1.1.00b
> Tank damage reduced by 1, and attack speed increased slightly. (They should be slightly better countered by melee minions, as they should be.)
> Neurotoxin damage cap increased slightly. (It's slightly better against large minions, such as Tanks and Sky Queen)
> Waddle Rockets will look further for a large target, such as Sky Queens.
> Fixed a visual bug with 2-star hard-mode-completed levels on the map.

Patch 1.0.02 // SECOND PATCH!

NEW THINGS:

> You can now skip the intro dialogue using the mouse.

BALANCE CHANGES:

> Tank attack speed lowered from 1.5 seconds to 1.75 seconds.
> Tanks are slightly better at shooting down Smartbugs. (bees)
> "Squid"-type air unit attack speed lowered from 2.4 to 2.75 second, and they can no longer get critical hits (1-hit kills).
> Sky Queen health lowered from 250 to 225.
> Skitterbug damage reduced from 15 to 13.
> Skitterbug and Stinger mutation time increased.
> Skitterbug mutate cost increased from 50 to 75.
> Skitterbug cost increased from 30 to 33.
> "Charge" speed bonus reduced slightly.
> Swarm Queen natural resistance to poison increased from 50% to 60%.
> Enemy queen is now smarter about using her nuke; she's less likely to waste it, and less likely to hold on to it while losing.

BUG FIXES:

> The end screen would often tell you that you achieved the requirements to get certain stars, even though you didn't.
> Skipping dialogue while the map is scrolling should no longer get the camera stuck.

update: 1.0.02c:
> Bug fix: Goop Slug is available in level 16.
> Level 10: The enemy can now build Spitters instead of Tanks, because Tanks were anti-fun on that level.

About This Game



Spawn an army of creepy-crawlies and watch them tear the enemy to shreds, covering the ground in green blood. Support your swarm by spitting deadly globs of Neurotoxin at the enemy horde, or if things get really out of hand, unleash the "Bio-Nuke".

Your minions all control themselves, which leaves you free to focus on the macro-strategy. Which types of minions will you create? How and when will you upgrade them? Mutate your eggs, spawn your swarm, spit some goop, and watch the chaos of battle.

🐜 FEATURING 🐜


  • Swarm Queen is inspired by real-life insects. This is what a war between ant colonies might look like IN SPACE! (Technically, we are also in space.)
  • Over 17* different beautifully hideous minions to murder the enemy with, from electricity-shooting shell-covered beasts, to flying bat-like bomb-carriers. (*Over 17 means 18.)
  • Dozens of levels, with 2 difficulty settings, and multiple degrees of completion, including bonus "challenge levels" to test yourself with after you've unlocked all the units.
  • In most games about swarms of alien monsters, they get mowed down by stupid humans. Swarm Queen is guaranteed 100% human free. ALL ALIENS ALL THE TIME.
  • Made by 1 dude over like 4 years. (This has nothing to do with the gameplay, I just thought you should know.)
  • Swarm Queen contains a 100% scientifically accurate depiction of Jupiter's moon Europa, including all of the alien life. No, it's not covered in a mile of ice. NASA is lying to you. The Earth is flat. The president is a reptilian. The universe is a hologram. BUY GOLD.

❤️ ALTERNATIVE DESCRIPTION ❤️


Swarm Queen is the touching story of a single mother trying to raise hundreds of daughters in a tough neighborhood. (This description is technically correct; the best kind of correct.)
