Apologies for veering very far from IF.
Swarm Simulator is similar to A Dark Room in terms of being primarily an inventory management game. You run a quickly growing insectile empire, starting from larvae and working your way up. But where A Dark Room gives story as you go, Swarm Simulator gives raw power. Each step up gives you the tools to build more and more.
Swarm Simulator is a curious mix of number counting and story. While the game provides plenty of options for keeping track of your swarm, there are small details – in the descriptions and so on – which add a very little bit of flavour to the game.
