A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Build a hive, make some honey! Hive Time is a small, bee themed management/base building sim. Harvest resources, grow your hive, and produce a new Queen before the current one dies.

Manage different bee roles in a totally scientifically inaccurate depiction of hive dynamics. Send Foragers out to find pollen and nectar, have Builders research new cell types, and ensure you have enough Beesitters to raise the next generation of bees.

Make interesting choices that affect the hive. Respond to wasp attacks, deal with outlaw slugs, or help a caterpillar realise a lifelong dream.

Hive Time is currently in development! Unless you're specifically interested in testing and/or watching the game's evolution, it's best to wait until it's done! :)

At release, the game will be published on Itch.io, but development builds are available to Cheese's Patreon supporters. If that's something you're into, click here to find out more!

Much improved!  The sound effects and UI changes make it a lot easier to play.  I got through it and made a new queenie just in time thanks to the vinehopper :)

Nice :D


The test build for linux works well and is quite fun.
