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 Real Time Strategy 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!

Coming to PC on Steam

Hi Everyone,

This is going to be a quick update on Hive Quest progress so here goes - just wanted to show off the new, first ever, game dev Vlog containing fun & games buzzing around the Old Orchard and a word from your's truly, the Solo dev who's working like an overly caffeinated chimp on the game. So please check it out and leave some feedback - it'll give you a really good idea of game play and lots of other stuff.

Not only that, here's some screen shots of very recent progress - as the Pre Alpha Demo Version starts to take shape :)

Shrub a Dub Dub

The Pet Shrublet is getting an AI overhaul and lots of new interactive behaviours

Creation Song

Here he is using the Creation Song to create something super useful for the Hive

Elder Shrub

And undergoing some sort of magical transformation involving sparkly things

So, yep, the pet Shrublet is set to become an indispensable part of every player's Hive. Eventually there will be a choice of creatures the player can choose from (like a Toadstool pet too, among others! :P ), but the Demo version of Hive Quest is, of course, intended as a preview of what might come to pass.

Along with that we have more landscaping and world creation as well as reams and reams of code, which you REALLY don't want to think about too deeply as it'll probably drive you crazy and/or blind or turn you into a Wombat or something.

So here's some more eye candy from last week...definitely no wombats...



Some cool new areas have been opened up as the landscape is prepared for the Demo

It is, admittedly, kinda difficult creating a game solo along with trying to get the word out at the same time (as well as look after the family and regularly deal with life's little side quests), so any promotional help is seriously, hugely, appreciated.

With that in mind, the game is starting to get lots of support from different places, so a great big Thank You! to all those who are following and providing encouragement - as a solo indie dev it means everything. Please keep it up :)

New updates coming soon so please keep an eye out -
