"A unique, visually appealing, board-less update to Chess. While it takes little time to learn the basic mechanics of Hive; true mastery takes decades."

Small update: two tweaks + Linux & Mac rebuilds

We might have picked up some other improvements to the engine, but there were at least two changes:

  • Games that are already started, now show their Game Settings in the list of games on the Online Game Menu Screen.
  • When reloading a game from the server and all of the moves get played in rapid succession, it no longer plays all of the move-sounds on top of each other (which could be rather jarring if your speakers were turned up). Now the replay of those moves is silent.

Linux, Mac, and Windows are all at the same release version.

Asynchronous Play has arrived!!

It's finally here!! :D Today, we've released Asynchronous Play! This means that you can play a game even when your opponent is not online (and vice-versa). So it'll be a lot easier to find players and to finish games.

Here's some things you need to know!

  • All online games now support Async... instead of Quitting, you can now "Leave" the game. This is perfectly safe, you will be able to come back at any time.
  • All online games now have a "turn timeout" setting which controls how long you have to make a move. The default is 7 days, so this is typically just to prevent users from abandoning a game when they're losing. If a turn-timeout passes without the active player moving, then that player forfeits the game.
  • To avoid the problem of two people having to be online at exactly the same time to start a game, you can now "Start Alone". Basically: if you "Create Game" online, then you hit "Ready" in the lobby, but nobody else is in the lobby yet, you'll have the option to "Start Alone". At that point, you'll go into the game (and you can even move, if it's your turn) even though there is no opponent. You can safely leave the game and it will still sit around waiting for someone to join it. NOTE: You can not start a Private Game alone... because you can't invite Steam players who aren't online (we're working on another way to do this eventually).
  • The first time you play, you will get prompted to connect to "BlueLine Cloud". This is not a 3rd party service (we're BlueLine.. it's just the name of our game-servers). If you connect, then your data will be available to you outside of Steam (sort of anti-DRM). If you choose "No Thanks" you can connect later, but it's recommended that you do connect.

Since it's been a long time since our last release, there have also been a number of other changes:
  • Our entire graphics library has been updated to use the latest version of FNA. This increases performance (better frame-rate on really old computers) and should make the game more compatible to graphics cards that have often had problems.
  • GamePad support on Linux is back (it had broken).
  • The list of games scrolls better
  • ?? Probably a lot! We've been holding back releases since January to make sure that Async was super-stable before releasing it on Hive. We released it first on Reversi, then improved it, then released it on Khet 2.0 and improved it more.... then tested more, polished a few things, and only NOW is Hive getting it! Much has happened in the meantime. Keep an eye out for any bugs!

In the last couple of hours since we pushed this update (we run through a bunch of production tests before doing the announcement) we've ALREADY noticed more people playing online than usual. This is going to be great for the community!! Please play online often to help keep this as a great place for finding Hive opponents!

If you run into any issues, please let us know... we'll be watching the Issues forum closely!

Enjoy! :D

“I can't believe how fun this game is...I really really like it...I highly, highly recommend it”
Wil Wheaton (on the physical version of Hive)

“I'm a really big fan of Hive”
Jerry Holkins (TychoBrahe from Penny Arcade on the physical version of Hive)

“So let it be said that Hive, a simple adaption of a cult board game, is the game that ended the Leaderboard’s losing streak.”

O tej grze

Officially licensed version of the "Mensa Select" award-winning board game!

Hive is a board game with a difference. There is no board! The pieces are added to the playing area thus creating the board. As more and more pieces are added the game becomes a fight to see who can be the first to capture (surround) the opposing Queen Bee.

Features:
  • Play locally or online.
  • Play against the Computer - AI with five difficulty levels.
  • Includes "hot-seat"/"pass-n-play" mode for players with who want to share one mouse/keyboard or gamepad.
  • Full 3D with camera-control
  • Switch seamlessly between playing with mouse/keyboard and gamepad.
  • Dozens of Steam Stats & Achievements.
  • Same expansions as table-top version: the Pillbug, the Ladybug, and the Mosquito expansions are available as DLC.
  • Each expansion can be turned on/off for any individual game. Play with these pieces online even if your opponent does not own the expansions! (they will also get to use the expansions during the game)
  • The Hive board game is a winner of many awards including "Mensa Select", "Dr. Toy: Product of Excellence", "Spiele Hits", "International Gamers Awards", and "Juego del año".

Love the board game and this is a good port. AI is decent enough, but seems to weaken with the added DLC, perhaps due to their complexity? Anyway, got it for 75% off ($4) and it was worth that. I waited for the sale because if I was going to pay $16, I may as well get a friend another board game of it and play offline.

Get it on sale at around $4-5 and you won't be disappointed. You may even want to get the board game version and rejoin the real world (ok maybe not).

Hive is a fantastic game, and this is a pretty good implementation. However, there is some minor wonkiness with the interface:
1. You can't pan around because it really isn't necessary, but this causes an effect with some tile placements where you have to find the portion of the tile at the top which isnn't being obscured by other text.
2. There are announcements that are displayed when a move repeats a previous hive configuration that are very distracting and practically useless because they obscure the playfield.
3. The developers used this 3D zoom-out display mechanic that automatically scales the playfield to hold the tile configuration, even when there is only one huge tile on the playfield at the very beginning of the game.

Despite these minor problems, the game is very enjoyable and is the perfect distraction for ten minutes between other activities.

Great boardgame!

This is an abstract game, with easy to learn rules, but with as much depth as Chess, or Go.
Put some thought into your moves, and you'll have a wonderful time with this game :)

A great game. I play often and the Hive Mind difficulty is a good opponent for lack of a human one. I'm looking forward to the announced offline play. The dev is also very responsive. They clearly care about the game being good.
