What’s Next? FAQ

Q: What about bug fixing on PC and Wii U?

We’ve got some clean up to do on PC. In our efforts to bring Hive Jump to new platforms, we’ve done a little clean up, overall, to the game. We’ve invested time toward improving game elements such as the collision system and some basic bug fixing. There were some questions about certain achievements which we’ve worked to clear up and some other “behind the scenes” optimizations to tackle. We’ve learned of a few new bugs about controller detection which we’ve got in the bug queue.

About Re-bindable Controls, on all platforms… I know it’s not natural to have the jump button on a shoulder button. Decades of other titles demand that we jump with a face button. I get it. But, if you put it anywhere else you can’t jump, aim and shoot well. We’ve tried. Its not a feature that is completely off the table, but we’ve not found a config that works better so we chose to prioritize other tasks. If you want to try out different configurations on PC in the meantime, tools like JoytoKey do offer that type of support.

A few of you were asking about controller maps in the Steam forums so we’ve whipped up a few quick guides which are over at http://hivejump.com/f-a-q/ but are also included here:






Q: Will PC Multiplayer ever come out of BETA?

Online Multiplayer is not a system that is easily perfected. It works great in some cases, but in others it suffers from desyncs and performance issues. We’ve invested considerable time toward making this experience better for everyone, but issues still come up. We’ve had to be a bit pragmatic in choosing ways to move Hive Jump forward and aren’t yet in a spot where we can take that beta tag off the Online Feature.

Q: Will you be coming to PS4 next?

Nothing is announced for PS4 or any other platform at this time.

Reviews

“Its shooting is fantastic, with strong sound design making each kill feel rewarding. Putting in a touch of permadeath works surprisingly well for an action-platformer, making you play more carefully than a game like Contra or Metal Slug.”
4/5 – HardcoreGamer

“Hive Jump is an enjoyable 2D platform experience with a soundtrack that draws the player into the atmosphere.”
9.6/10 – Marooners Rock

“Hive Jump features a pretty cool respawn system that’s sort of like permadeath-lite.”
