It´s seems like the Finnish studio Skydome Entertainment got something rather nice in the making. Because their game “The hive” (which would be a adventure/puzzle/strategy game for PC, MAC and Linux) made me think of a really nice blend of Starcraft (the zerg) and Dungeon Keeper.
I also have to say that i really like the design and graphics in The Hive.
And IF you pre-order the game, then you will gain access to the Early Access version of The Hive right away. So “hopefully” we will get the chance to play The Hive very, very soon!
About The Hive:
Hive is an easily approachable, riveting strategy game, where the objective of the player is to build an underground network using their insect colonies from the base, called “nests”. Captivating back story and a beautiful visual design takes the player to a fantasy world, which offers new surprises and challenges as the game progresses.
To react to these challenges the player must upgrade and adjust their nest. Leaning to heavy storytelling and a broad world, Hive offers the player a diverse exploration ground. Having many different endings and possibilities, the player can create their own unique route, strategy, and story.
Growing and adjusting are one of the most important parts of the game. There lies many challenges in the underground networks, and the player must defeat enemies and explore the land to upgrade their nest to answer to them.
By defeating right kind of enemies you can find new objects which you can add to your nest and use them in the battle. It is also possible for the player to learn new technology by inspecting the old abandoned ruins and temples.
The game has gotten its inspiration from the nature documentaries of insects, borrowed and blended elements from science fiction, strategy games and fascinating world of archaeology. The end product is one of a kind game concept, which mesmerizes the player for a long time.
