Hive Quest – Strange Adventures in the Wild Woods certainly has a unique premise: a real-time strategy game in which players take control of a tiny bee and explore an enchanted woodland filled with ancient magic, strange creatures and intriguing puzzles.
The story arc involves a dangerous journey to find safety for their insect tribe after a cataclysm destroys their home. Players will uncover the secrets of the Old Orchard, find and train your very own woodland sprite and lead their Hive to victory.

Hive Quest was created by Rod Tyson, the founder and creative director of Goldenheart Games. “As a kid, did you ever play a game, read a book or see a movie that left you with an indefinable sense of longing?” asks Tyson. “Hive Quest was created to tap into these feelings & evoke mother nature though the colorful lens of folk lore and fairy tale.
In short, to recapture a sense of childhood wonder.”
Hive Quest is currently on Kickstarter, with the campaign preparing to go live soon. You can also check out its Steam wishlist page. And be sure to look over some lovely screenshots of the title in the gallery below.

It’s Kickstarter campaign gives fans three choices each day for upgrades that represent different scenes from a movie. By the end of the campaign, you’ll have built a full-length film and a fully upgraded version of the game for everyone.
