Bee the best bee that you can bee in Bee Simulator

Bee Simulator (2)

To bee, or not to bee, that is the question. I mean, always bee yourself if you can, or better yet, bee the best bee that you can bee. Bee-lieve in yourself! If you’re looking for the buzz on the latest game that sounds hotter than the new Bee-yonce single on the charts, then I’ve got something for you: Bee Simulator. Set on a swarm summer day, it’s up to you to take control of a single drone in a greater colony as you venture out into the world. Here’s the first trailer, that might give you a hive-five at the end of it:

“One evening, when I was reading a book about bees to my daughter, I realized that the life of a family of bees is a premade script waiting for a family game,” Varsav Game Studios creative director Łukasz Rosiński said in a press release.

As a parent, I find it important to spend time together on activities we all find interesting and attractive. We designed the Bee Simulator to be such a game. Through the game, the players will learn fun facts about the life of bees, and explore a beautiful world from the perspective of a tiny insect. The split-screen mode will allow you to get to know your colony in a cheerful and entertaining way. We made sure that controlling the flight of the bee will be intuitive for even the youngest players.

Here’s the buzz on a list of activities that players can tackle, which so far doesn’t sound too shab-bee at all:

Bee Simulator (4)

  • A unique chance to see the macro scale world from the micro perspective of a honeybee
  • A realistic representation of a place inspired by Central Park
  • Three diverse modes enriched with educational elements
  • Single-player story mode presents you with a family of bees. Can you save the hive from the threat of human beings?
  • Exploration mode allows you to freely discover a world inspired by Central Park in New York.
  • Split-screen mode can be either used for cooperation or competition. It includes an additional map that makes the game even more fascinating.
  • A possibility to interact with the surroundings: people, animals, plants, and other insects;
  • Lack of violence – it’s a perfect choice for parents seeking a game to safely play with their children;
  • Relaxing music composed by Mikołaj Stroiński, who was responsible for the soundtrack of such games as The Witcher 3 and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.

Bee Simulator (9)

A pity that there are no sports mini-games included. I would have loved to have played some rug-bee. Well that’s enough waxing poetic on Bee Simulator I guess, which will be out later this year on PC, with PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch hopping in on that action at a later date.Is it a game for anyone and everyone? Maybe not, but you know what they say:

Beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
