Overview

<Half-Life 2> Insects Infestation takes you into the role of a single unit in an epic battle between three terran species more commonly known as ants, termites and wasps. In these great social structures you will combat the other species to ultimate victory.

When you enter as a player, you will have the choice of either becoming a worker or a soldier for your respective species. The objective of the worker ants will be to gather resources and to fortify the defenses with numerours types of structures. The soldiers objective is quite given, a simple matter of search & destroy. These two starting classes will eventually be able to evolve into upperclasses using earned experience or gathered resources. Currently each team/species have a variaty of 6 classes including the worker and soldier.
