24,346 backers pledged $2,485,506 to help bring this project to life.

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!


 See you soon!

      I'm so glad they're going to talk about changed addresses because I moved once like 2 years ago and spent a year trying to get my address changed without a response and I'm moving again in like... a week and I really wanna get my stuff! I'm so excited this is finally coming out as well.

      Nelsolla -- Step 1, wait for it to come out.

      I backed $15 waaaay back and have since changed physical addresses and I have a different computer now. Will I still get the digital copy of the game that I backed for?

      @SoleStratego all of the physical reward tiers for the kickstarter included the download (or GAMEPAK1) as part of the reward, so you won't have to wait unless you want to play the episodes together.

      I'm not sure how people got the idea they'd only get act one, the announcement literally defined what the game was (a four episode story) and stated that backers would be able to download everything for the first game. Oh well!

      ok... And The Grubbels album is?

      My big question is for those of us who are receiving flash drives of the game. Will we receive a single flash drive of the entire thing, and if so, will there be no way to access the episodes as they release, essentially making those of us who went physical the last ones that'll be able to play?

      Still hella pumped of this game. Looks great.

      At this point I can only assume that spelling Grubbles/Grubbels two different ways in every update and tweet is deliberate for some reason?

      I never got the game when it came out the first time and I've basked this way back when it first started

      "5. EPISODES

      When I say "first game" and "second game", I mean those will be two distinct storylines that each consist of several episodes to be released in sequence. Four episodes per game is looking likely. The fact that there will be multiple installments won't change much for backers. Anyone who backed will be entitled to each download for the first game. "

      This is really all that was ever said about what backers would actually get, and that was when the game was still in 3D. That update was over two years ago. A lot has changed since then, and reading only that update didn't make it clear what backers would be getting after the development shift. Thank you for clarifying, I just hope updates can be a little more transparent going forward.

      So unspeakably hype for this still. Hope to get some address change info soon though! It's definitely been awhile and I want this ASAP. :D
