Hiveswap: A New Trailer and Act 1 Update – April 15, 2017 

Hiveswap is an episodic, four-part point-and-click adventure. At long last, Act I is almost here.

Developer What Pumpkin Games describes Hiveswap as a love letter to ’90s adventure games. The game is hand-animated with hyper-detailed, colorful environments.

You will inhabit three characters: Joey Claire, who is trapped in her room as well as in 1994, and is apparently stranded on a hostile alien planet as well; Jude Harley, Joey’s kid brother, who’s trapped in his treehouse; and Xefros Tritoh, who appears to be an alien.

Now, please pay attention. What Pumpkin Games wants to tell you something…

HIVESWAP: Act 1 is the first of a four-part series set in Andrew Hussie’s Homestuck universe, with a companion series, Hauntswitch, to follow. Continue your save from chapter to chapter, then from game to game, to carry your story, choices, friendships, and frenemies across them all — then do it again! Once released, HIVESWAP and Hauntswitch will be playable in either order. Haven’t read Homestuck? That’s fine! This game is set in 1994! Homestuck hasn’t even been invented yet!

Got it? Good.

Look for Act I of Hiveswap September 14th on Windows and Mac.

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.
