The swedish video game magazine Level got a few pages about indie games and they called The Hive "The best zombie game of the year!" and they didnt mean best Indie Zombie game, according to them it outclassed games such as Dead Rising 2.

I havnt played the game myself yet but I will as soon as I get some more MS!

It's a paper magazine so Im afraid I cant link it, I could try and find a scanner at some friends place and scan the page though.

EDIT: Will most likely have a scan later today, will write up a translation of the page to go with it.

To my knowledge, you have to use another site.

Sent the article to Titus, in the meantime enjoy a rough translation of it since I doubt the majority understands Swedish.

"Dead Rising 2 will have to step aside becuse The Hive is the best zombie game you can play this year.

Alex Rig is a daily news reporter that have been given the assignment to unveil a number of mysterious dissapearences in a small town somewhere in America.

He soon discovers that something is amiss when he gets there. The place is swarming with armed guards with chemical suits. He finds a entrence that leads to an enourmous underground building and inside he starts to discover an conspiracy that Shinji Mikami would be proud of.

It feels weird to write this since Dead Rising 2 was just released when you read this but The Hive could be the best zombie game you gonna play this year. This is a wonder of minimalistic gamedesign with its brilliant array of colours, superb animations and unexpected detailed envoirment. It's a return to old school actionplatforming where titles such as Blackthorne and Iji seems to have served as an important source of inspiration.

Dont be suprised if it starts to show up on years best seller lists when the year 2010 is going to be summerized, its THAT good.

Carl-Johan Johansson."


There we go, its just a very rough translation since well I just wanted to make it readable and I didnt want to spend half the day gettin everything right (you will notice it by the tons of gramar errors and spelling errors xD)

Picture gettin uploaded by Titus later smile.gif

Late to the party, I know, but I just started playing this marvel of a game.

I really like this line of the review:

"Vanni Del Moral owns the shit out of the entire gaming industry with a five megabytes great free games that took a month to develop."

That's pretty high praise laugh.gif

Is it too late if I release this game to mobile devices, say late 2013? Just thinking of converting it to hopefully make a few bucks.

I personally don't have anything that'd run it, but I say go for it.
