Hiveswap: Act 1, Launches September 14th, 2017 on PC and Mac

Following a massively successful Kickstarter campaign, What Pumpkin Games announced, that Hiveswap, the Homestuck Adventure Game, will be releasing on September 14th, 2017! Hiveswap: Act 1 is the first of a four-part series set in Andrew Hussie’s Homestuck universe, with a companion series, Hauntswitch, to follow. Continue your save from chapter to chapter, then from game to game, to carry your story, choices, friendships, and frenemies across them all – then do it again! Once released, Hiveswap and Hauntswitch will be playable in either order.

Check out the launch trailer of Hiveswap: Act 1, featuring some gameplay footage:

“HIVESWAP is a loving tribute to ‘90s adventure games – without the accompanying frustration. As fun and well-paced as you generously remember them being. No dream-logic solutions, no hearing the same “those items don’t work together” message over and over. HIVESWAP has unique responses for everything you can try. Spend hours trying everything on everything, if you want to – but not because you have to. Learn about the characters by exploring their homes! But like, in a good way! No audio logs split up and scattered around –

“It took awhile to pull together the exact right team to make the sort of game I wanted this to be. A lot of patience was needed from everyone, fans especially, but I think it was worth the wait,” said Andrew Hussie, the creator of Homestuck. “It’s turned out to be just the sort of game I’d want to play.”

All of HIVESWAP is hand-animated in two gorgeous dimensions – full of strange homes to explore, every room brimming with secrets. The world of HIVESWAP is beautiful and alive, from its hyper-detailed environments to its gorgeous, fully-rendered animations. Enjoy an eclectic, ambitious, genre-spanning soundtrack featuring contributions from Undertale’s Toby Fox and, regrettably, at least one third-wave ska song. Also featuring at least one pseudo-revolutionary garage rock duo, with regrets of their own.

HIVESWAP: ACT 1 launches on September 14 th , 2017 for PC and Mac and will be available for $7.99 via Steam and the Humble Store, with the release timing of future episodes to be determined. A bundle including the HIVESWAP: ACT 1 Original Soundtrack, priced at $11.99, will also be available from launch.”
