News: Episodic Sci-Fi Fantasy Adventure Hiveswap is Announced – February 17, 2015

Successfully funded via Kickstarter, Hiveswap raised 357% of its $700,000 base goal, which is pretty incredible. Developer What Pumpkin Studios is now ready to share more of the game with us.

Behold an Episode One teaser and a video displaying some of the game’s assets.


In Hiveswap, you’ll join a young girl named Joey on a wild adventure in an alien world called Alternia.

Here are some of the game’s features:
-Point-and-click gameplay in the spirit of classic adventure games
-Dark comedy storyline rife with video game & pop culture homages
-5 playable characters who work together to solve puzzles
-100+ NPCs to interact with — how you treat them changes the story
-The troll equivalent of Twitter to mess around with
-Original soundtrack by James Roach and Toby Fox

Hiveswap will have four episodes altogether, and will be released for PC, Mac and Linux starting in mid-2015.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
