Kotaku: Ant Nation DS Preview: Baby's First Strategy Game

Konami's Nintendo DS game Ant Nation raises some serious questions about ethics, aliens and why you'd want to craft a strategy game around pests.

The ethics are what bug the most (pun intended). Players are supposed to toughen up their ant colonies by torturing them with flames, a magnifying glass or water so that they're better able to fight off other insects that compete for random food items left all around different environments and alien ants that invade the colony.

That's another thing: why would aliens invade Earth in the form of ants? You'd think just about any other creature would be a more effective means of taking over a planet – even a praying mantis would be more menacing.

The story is too old to be commented.
