Happy Holidays, everyone! HIVESWAP: Act 1 has been Greenlit by the Steam Community! 

We'll be updating you with further information soon, but for now, we just want to thank you so much for the help! We're looking forward to a very interesting January...

Thank you! And clarifications. And GRUBBELS!

As of this post, we've reached #2 (and climbing) of all projects on Greenlight...ALREADY! And HIVESWAP is on the front of the Steam Community page! Wow. Thank you all so much! Where doing this, man. 

We will be answering queries about changed emails and physical addresses soon! And we've seen some other questions, so just to clarify: When the decision was made to release the game in multiple Acts, backers were assured that they would still be getting ALL episodes of HIVESWAP and each episode's official soundtrack. This hasn't changed! 

Well, that's not true. It has changed...for the better. Backers will also be getting THE GRUBBLES ALBUM, announced here for the first time, before it's available anywhere else!

Hey everone! There’s a lot to cover today, so we’ll try to keep it brief. First and foremost, the Steam Greenlight for Hiveswap: Act 1 is now live! Please head over to the page and vote YES so we can get the game approved for Steam as quick as possible, since our planned launch is still January 2017—next month! The page features the recently-released trailer for Act 1, which should have been posted here first, but wasn’t! An unfortunate oversight on our part. The page also has some new screenshots of the game, a new description, and minimum system requirements for PC and Mac (Linux coming soon). 

Speaking of videos, we’ve got BROOM TEMPERATURE, a new, leaked track from The Grubbles that’s getting a lot of play in Outglut right now. If you haven’t heard The Grubbels yet, well, it’s time to catch up. The revolution won’t wait. 

There’s also a lot to check out at the HIVESWAP HIVESHOP at Welovefine! By the time you read this, the secret GRUBBLES MERCH will be unlocked. CHECK IT OUT.

While you’re at it, why not check out the KILLER new prints, featuring The Grubbels, available at the WhatPumpkin shop?

Finally, we just want to thank everyone for sticking around. Lots of ups and down, but we’re ALMOST THERE. We’ll be posting another trailer before launch, and this time, backers will see it before anyone else. We promise we haven’t forgotten who made this all possible. We’ll also be answering queries about changed emails and addresses soon, so have no fear!
