Lost Cities Kickstarter Launched!

Hey there, Hive Fans!

We at BlueLine Game Studios are happy to announce that we have just launched a Kickstarter for our newest game Lost Cities! It uses the same great engine that we started with Hive and have been growing over the years for our other games. The game will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux as usual and we hope to use the Kickstarter to fund a bunch of translations and a few other new bells and whistles. We hope you'll take a few minutes to check out the Kickstarter:

We also have already put out a demo for the game that you can check out on the Lost Cities Steam page:

Thanks for your continued support of BlueLine Games! Enjoy!

Online bug fixed! (still on sale)

Sorry about that.

It turns out the issue is that some database upgrades - that we made in the last few days - had decided that "\" was not a safe character. So any time we were trying to place a piece to the top-left of another piece (in Hive notation this is like "\wG1") we would place the piece ON TOP of the other piece instead.

This is fixed! Now you can move to the top-left of another piece successfully again ;) The fix was on the game-server so there is no Steam update required.

Please let us know if you run into any other issues!


Thanks for playing!

PS: We're still on super sale, so please tell a friend! :)

“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.”

About This Game

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)
  • Asynchronous play - you can play even when your opponent is offline.
  • 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".
