So what’s Hive Quest all about? It’s an immersive realtime strategy game world set in 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, LionHead Studios original 2001 PC classic ‘Black & White’ and the artwork of fairy artists like Brian Froud, Hive Quest is a trip into a whimsical world that is intended to delight and entertain.
He’s the first in a bunch of woodland sprites that can be tamed who will help your Hive grow by finding stuff in odd places. Not just any old stuff but useful bits and bobs like spell components and crafting items that can be used to make animated minions (among other things).
If you encounter another sprite that belongs to an enemy hive these guys will also fight each other using special attacks.
I’ve also been improving the movement of the hive drones as they gather resources (food & gloop) to make them more natural (see abovesville).
Other stuffs either complete or in progress –
– Puzzles of varying description
– Flying fish
– Spells that will boost your hive drones in battle, or create food and gloop when you most need it
– Witch charms and arcane lore found only in secret places
