Survive amongst a mythical woodland filled with ancient magic, strange creatures & intriguing puzzles. As the Hive Mind, you embark upon a dangerous and sometimes dark journey to find safety for your insect tribe. Inspired by folklore & fairy legend, and the artwork of modern fairy artists, Hive Quest is a trip into a whimsical world that is intended to delight and entertain.
Players of Hive Quest will find themselves in the role of the ‘Hive Mind’ – an omnipresent entity in charge of micro-managing the growth of an insect colony.
Laying eggs, building new hive sections, managing resources and exploring a mysterious woodland filled with magic and oddity are important elements of gameplay. Warfare is also an ever present reality, with Insect colonies engaging in swift and deadly skirmishes, or subterfuge and theft. Players also acquire a magical creature that assists with spell components and uncovering secrets that may open up new areas or upgrades.
With a large dollop of craziness, humour and the magic of the Wild Woods, be ready to spend time dancing with the fey!
Hive Quest is an unusual mix - based around real time strategy with a strongly defined narrative that constantly provides the player with new goals, options, changes of pace and some very odd "What the heck?!" moments. Throw in a bunch of unique puzzles and a hand designed landscape it's becoming quite the smorgasbord (read: lots of cool stuff). Here's a few tasty, low calorie screenshots from some of the latest game dev work.
With lots of exploring to do, the player can mind control any one of the Hive's drones and buzz off to see what they can find. But it's not all fun & games, there's a dangerous world out there with many things lying in wait that might kill or even capture the little creatures living in the Old Orchard.
During the epic journey to find your Tribe a new home the player will encounter a wide array of strange friends, like Yuna the Guide, sent to help the player find their way thru the woods, or the excitable Gnome (err...what?) the snail rider clan and a host of others.
So the thousand billion things needed to make Hive Quest a reality are slowly coming together, and hopefully in the not too distant future we will have a version of the game ready for Streamers/ YT'ers/ Twitchers & co. to play, and then not too long after that the big, fat, juicy Steam Early Access release can go ahead.
There'll probably be a kickstarter / crowd fund-ey thing in there too somewhere...
But not without your support, good vibes and general super awesome input so GET BUSY PEOPLE!
Until next time, take care and have a scary Halloween! Wooooo....
