The Ant Caves is a quest found in MediEvil. This level was not remade for MediEvil: Resurrection.

To begin the level, Daniel has to summon the Witch of the Forest near her cauldron in the Enchanted Earth using the Witch Talisman. She will task him with finding seven pieces of Amber in the Ant's nest. If he refuses to help her, the quest will not initiate and will not be available until the game is reset or the Enchanted Earth is completed. If he fails to bring her seven pieces of Amber, she'll refuse to reward him.

Book 1

This magic portal was crafted by the faeries. It appears to have been crafted to prevent something escaping from the tunnels below.

Book 2

If you are brave enough to go beyond this point you will enter the chamber of the dreaded Queen Ant.

Be aware, once you have encountered her six-legged regalness there will be no going back!

Behind the scenes


The level was heavily inspired by the Alien movies and was said to be "essentially a silly version of Aliens" by Jason Wilson.[1]
