Antkeeper Superbuild

This repository contains the superbuild system and all dependencies required to build Antkeeper.


Download the Antkeeper superbuild repository and all of its Git submodules:

git clone --recursive https://git.antkeeper.com/antkeeper/superbuild.git

Note: The antkeeper-data submodule contains proprietary game data and is not publicly available. The game can be built without this submodule, but the game data is required to play Antkeeper. You can get a copy of the game data by purchasing Antkeeper at antkeeper.com.

Configuration & Building

CMake is required to configure and build the application. Depending on the target platform, CMake should be invoked from one of the following directories:

Directory Platform
build/linux32 32-bit Linux
build/linux64 64-bit Linux
build\win32 32-bit Windows
build\win64 64-bit Windows

The following arguments may be passed to CMake during configuration:

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE // [Debug, Release]


Building for Linux requires CMake, GCC, G++, and GNU Make. Navigate to either the build/linux32 or build/linux64 directory and run the following commands:

cmake ../.. -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=...
cmake --build .


Building for Windows requires CMake and Visual Studio Build Tools. Additionally, NSIS is required if you want to build a distributable installer program. In order to correctly build for your target architecture, you must use the x86 Native Tools Command Prompt or the x64 Native Tools Command Prompt for 32-bit and 64-bit applications, respectively. Then navigate to either the build\win32 or build\win64 directory and run the following commands:

cmake ..\.. -G "NMake Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=...
cmake --build .


After building, a standalone version of the application will be located somewhere in the bin directory according to the build type, build platform, and version string.


The built application can be packaged into a distributable format with the following command:

cmake --build . --target dist

The resulting package will be located in the dist directory.


If any changes have been made to the submodules, commit those first. Each submodule can then be updated to their latest commits with the following command:

git submodule update --recursive --remote
