CREATING A TABLETOP GAME
NucleAnts is a fun fast playing dice placement game with cards. It’s about ants that survived the nuclear apocalypse. We are still in the middle of developing all the different aspects of the game. But we pushed the game to a level where we want you involved. Very soon you are going to find more possibilities to participate. For the time being we just want to start showing you the process of working on the game. Your Feedback is highly appreciated!
THE GAME DESIGN OF NUCLEANTS
You are the ant queen. Roll and combine your genetic dice. Place them on your chosen mutation-cards to use their effects! Get more dice! Destroy your rivals! Gather precious atomic waste! But be fast, other players may preempt you. And be aware of the dangerous DoomDie: its risky powers produce boon ore bane for your brood. Claim the most precious atomic waste to become the all powerful ant empress and win the game.
Roll your dice!
Choose your mutations!
Be fast and smart to win!
The logotype, functional elements, typography… there’s a lot to design in NucleAnts world. We are pretty happy with the mixture of post-apocalyptic filthiness in the illustrations and the cleaness in the graphic parts so far. But there’s still a way to go.
The ants are the heroes of NucleAnts’ universe. Their appearance is the main ingredient of the game’s look and feel. The NucleAnts live in a dark and filthy world – this is what we wanted the illustrations to reflect. We are inspired by the covers of 1950s’ horror films. So we try to minimize digital tools, while finding interesting perspectives and creating terrifying unique creatures.
THE CREATORS OF NUCLEANTS
THE GAME DESIGNER
Martin is so much into games that he transfers experiences like travelling or dreams into game ideas. He creates prototype after prototype that we test and share with friends. One of them was the prototype for NucleAnts.
Fabian creates the Antocalypse – the post-apocalyptic world of NucleAnts. He is illustrating all these eerie ants and designing the components of the game like the cards and dice.
