Remember SimAnt? Empire of the Ants has the same goal, but comes in 3D! More features are also included. The player has to raise a tribe and resist some of the most dangerous enemies an ant can have. Not only are the other insects dangerous, but the four seasons are also dangerous. The player also has to keep an eye on the headquarters and especially the Queen Ant - she is the only way to get new ants.

Empire of the Ants is based on the book of the same name by Bernard Werber. The original French title of Bernard Werber's book was simply Les Fourmis (The Ants). Empire of the Ants has been inserted for the English translation, probably because of the notable 1905 novel short story by H.G. Wells dealing with intelligent ants who are devouring the South American continent.
