I’m often on the look-out for games that are different. Bee Simulator fits that profile rather nicely.
In it, you see the world through the eyes of a bee. You play as one of nature’s most important pollinators as you set up a home with the rest of your colony in one of Central Park’s trees. However, your life is turned upside down one day when humans decide to cut down your tree, thrusting the fate of your colony into your tiny mandibles.
Bee Simulator has multiple game modes and a “realistic open environment” with the help of beekeepers during development. With all of that honeycomb of information, you will learn while having fun thanks to the suggestions and valuable information shared throughout the game.
“From their means of communication and collecting pollen, to defending the hive from other insects and disease, the secret life of bees will no longer be a mystery,” the developers say.
The Polish developers behind the game, Varsav Game Studios, just revealed during Gamescom trailer that the game will also feature co-op and competitive multiplayer with up to four players, which should make it a good game for nature lovers and families alike.
Bee Simulator is an indie game that I genuinely look forward to playing the full product. It will be out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on November 14.
