The Ant Experiment
Crowdfunding games is all the rage these days. And while I won't post about every Kickstarter project I am made aware of, this one actually looks interesting: In The Ant Experiment you play an ant in an MMO. Apparently only on mobile platforms, unfortunately.
The interesting part is that you don't play a hero, but a simple ant in a colony. All achievements are cooperative and collective, it is all about your colony thriving through your collaboration with other ants. Hard to say how good that will be as a game, but as a social experiment it sure beats most existing MMOs (with the possible exception of ATITD).
