Description

Joey Claire is stranded on a planet of alien teenagers, armed with her best dancin' shoes and a sylladex full of pogs. It’s up to her to survive on the dangerous planet of Alternia and get home with the help of her new friend Xefros, a novice at telekinesis and a fairly decent rapper. The journey ahead requires social skills, puzzle-solving and creative exploration of this richly-imagined planet!

Hiveswap: Act 2 is the anticipated second entry in the four-part series of narrative adventure games from the universe of Andrew Hussie's smash hit webcomic Homestuck. Hiveswap has something for you, whether you're a dedicated fan or just now discovering the fandom phenomenon. Joey and Xefros's adventure blows up with higher stakes than ever. Can you point, click, talk and solve your way to the end? Find out!

History

DEVELOPER: What Pumpkin Games

What Pumpkin Games is an indie developer originally founded by Andrew Hussie, American author and artist who created the original MS Paint Adventures webcomic series including the much loved ‘Homestuck’. The team is a small yet diverse and eclectic group of talented writers, artists and developers. As fans of the franchise they lovingly create video game experiences based on the Homestuck/Hiveswap universe for fans world wide.

Features

  • THE DREAM OF THE 90'S IS ALIVE ON ALTERNIA The artistry and humor of the golden age of adventure games meets full animation and colorful high definition graphics in this love letter to the point-and-click classics. Bizarre alien landscapes and colorful characters make Alternia a joy to explore – if you're clever enough to survive its most murderous residents!
  • EXPERIENCE BRUTAL REPRESSION Alternia suffers under the extremely stylish heel of the heiress, Trizza Tethis, and you're on the run from her trail of destruction on the back of a graceful deercat. But there's a resistance that needs your help! Meet and talk to dozens of iconic troll characters from the Hiveswap Friendsim series of visual novels, ranging from the weirdly friendly to the murderous.
  • THE SWEET SOUNDS OF CLOWNSTEP James Roach and Toby Fox (creator of Undertale) return for another genre-spanning original soundtrack. Bombastic orchestral arrangements, hip-hop and the pioneering new genre of clownstep score your adventure across this strange alien planet.
