Worms: The Director's Cut (most commonly shortened to WormsDC) is a strategy game developed by UK-based company, Team17. It was the last game the company released for the Amiga home computer system, as the games market for the computer had begun to dry up by the time this game was released in 1997. Adding new elements and weapons to the Worms gameplay, this is generally considered to be the finest entry in the first generation of Worms games.

Built largely around the game engine for the original Amiga version of Worms, and developed under a number of working titles including Worms AGA, Worms+, Worms 1.5, Worms: Mad Cow Edition, Worms '97, and Worms: The Next Generation, series creator Andy Davidson produced this version of the game as a testing bed for new features, and to convince Team17 to make improvements to Worms 2 which, at the time, was simply going to be an updated version of the original game.

WormsDC added a slew of new features and weapons to the series. Most of these were carried over to later installments in the game save for one weapon, the Sheep-on-a-Rope, and the enhanced customization features, which were severely pared down for future releases.

On 1 June 2018, Andy Davidson posted a screenshot on his Instagram showing the WormsDC title screen with a new version number of 1.5 alpha and a build date of 2 May 2018[1], however this update has yet to be released.
