Hi Jumpers!

Our latest update is actually TOO LONG to post in its entirety on these forums, so here's a link so you can check it out on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/graphitelab/hive-jump-0/posts/1584000

The biggest news is that Hive Jump will be coming to Steam Early Access starting July 20th, and we'll also be having a closed-alpha testing period with all of you at the beginning of July! (more details coming soon).


Feel free to discuss below!

    That boss looks amazing, can't wait for Early Access!

    May I ask how you plan to keep boss fights entertaining after a few runs, for replay value?
    Alternative attacks, different stages, something else?
  • We're going to play around with the idea of multiple stages.

    Also, we're going to make it so you don't always face a boss, but instead sometimes you will enter an arena and have to hold out for 2 minutes as more and more waves of enemies spawn.

    And will early access be available for Wii U users?
  • There is no equivalent of Early Access for Wii U, so no. If you want to get in on Early Access for PC/Mac/Linux on Steam, we can either swap your key from Wii U to Steam, or you can buy a Steam copy of the game when it launches on Early Access on 7/20.

    In 11 days, I am going to play the absolute crap out of Hive Jump.

    Will there be a preload period? or just download when it's on EA?

    When are the steam keys going out?

    The gameplay feels really solid, and the visuals are even better than I expected.
    I'm glad the elite aliens have this cool purple color instead of looking trippy like they used to, lol.

    So far my only issues are the 60fps cap and most regular/elite aliens always face to the right.
    Is the fps cap permanent or will it be removed?

    Edit: Nvm just read on the Steam forums that it's necessary.
