A short fantasy game about anthropomorphic insects that defies IF conventions, February 3, 2016

Dead Like Ants is indeed about ants. You play an ant in red overalls sent by the queen to appease 5 creatures located on your tree.

The game uses non-standard directions (such as "widdershins") and it provides other surprises that toy with your expectations of interactive fiction.

The numerous NPC's were surprisingly charming. The writer derived inspiration from Hans Christen Andersen, Lewis Carroll, and the musical "Into the woods". The game has an overall fairy-tale feel.

Once you pass the initial surprises, the games puzzles are not very difficult. This is a game to be finished in less than half an hour. I recommend it to everybody, because it has a great effect and doesn't take long to play.

Interesting. Not what you expect., January 3, 2015
by Chai Hai (Kansas City KS)

This was an overall enjoyable game. I enjoyed (Spoiler - click to show)killing everyone one by one, although it was a bit morbid. I was always fascinated by the descriptions of the creatures and finding out what they really were from the score. I tried to figure out what each creature was and was usually wrong.

The directions took a bit of getting used to, but once you did it was a cinch. Overall, good game!
