It’s been announced that the beekeeping sim game, APICO, from developer TNgineers and publisher Whitethorn Games, is now officially available for PC. You can purchase the game for $19.99 from Steam, itch.io, GameJolt, the Epic Games Store, Utomik or the Humble Store. The press release states that it’s a game which fans of Stardew Valley and Terraria will enjoy. Feel free to check out the launch trailer down below and read a little bit more about the game.
Combining resource gathering, biology, and minigames with ideas from both real-life and fantasy beekeeping and gardening, APICO will teach players about the ins-and-outs of maintaining a healthy hive and the importance of our irreplaceable pollinating pals. The islands of APICO were once abuzz with different species of bees, and it’s up to players to rediscover lost species, cross-breed new ones, and repopulate each unique bee-ome. Progressing further into the game may also uncover some forgotten secrets. But that’s none of our beeswax.
Key Features of APICO include:
Breaking into Hives: It’s not as bad as it sounds! Collect materials, craft tools, and play fun beekeeping minigames to help rehome bees before releasing them back into the wild.
It Takes a Colony: Breed, collect, and conserve over 30 species of bees, like the Common Bee, the Forest Bee, and the Verge Bee. They’re all Queens in our book.
Bee2C Marketing: Fund the family business by making and selling honey, Apicola, and other beekeeping products. You’ll be a bee-llionaire in no time!
Cross-Pollination: Cross play with up to four players, regardless of where you purchase the game. Bees who work together, stay together!
