“Hive”, the video game adaptation of the popular board game, is finally making its way onto your PCs. For those of you who have never heard of the board game, you’ll be tasked with using bug pieces to completely surround your opponent’s queen. Of course, your opponent will be trying to do the same to you. While the game is still in an early Alpha state, you can pre-order the game via the official website below for $6.99 (30% off as of 11/6/13). This will also include a Steam key, though it’s important to note that the game is not yet playable on the Steam platform despite the Early Access page being live. The game has an estimated release date of early December 2013, though the date is not set in stone.

Unfortunately, Fraps and the game’s engine aren’t communicating and I am thus unable to record gameplay. You can instead check out my review of the board game and view an instructional video here:
