Hello, bee friends!

A small update today with a couple of changes. The two biggest ones that will affect gameplay are that the cell pattern for Honey Refineries has changed (the Jelly Refinery hasn't been updated yet, but my plan is to shift it too so that the tile you click on is always the "middle" most tile vertically), and that the honey costs for producing jelly and constructing jelly storage have been lowered slightly.

This update also brings in the first building animations. The Honey Refinery now opens and closes to reflect paused/resumed state (which is less broken in general now), and there's a subtle "pumping" animation that you might notice when zoomed in.

If you missed it, yesterday was World Bee Day, and I streamed a Hive Time run as well as a little bit of debugging and animation work. There's an archive over here.

Full changelog:

  • Added pause, resume, and production animations to honey refinery
  • Added a bunch of new names
