Earlier this year in April we told you about Hive Jump, a game that seeks to blend the action-platforming of Spelunky with XCOM, a turn-based alien shooter that requires careful planning and thought in order to get through the levels. Hive Jump is a multi-player game with you and your friends assuming the role of JUMPERS, who blast their way through alien hives in order to defeat the hive queen.

The Kickstarter has been live for a little under a month now, with three days left to go. Currently the team has managed to secure $39k in funding, but the goal is $50k. The unique thing about this game is the initial $50k goal gets both the PC and the Wii U version, while the PS4 and Xbox One were stretch goals.

So what’s unique about the game aside from multiplayer? Each level is procedurally generated, so you’ll never have the same experience twice. In addition, the developers are promising a bevy of unique weapons to help you conquer the aliens within the game that you’ll encounter, even through environment changes like dark levels.

The game honestly gives off a multiplayer Metroid vibe with all the alien shooting, so if you enjoy that style of game, perhaps you might want to consider giving Hive Jump your support. If you’re still uncertain, be sure and check out the Kickstarter pitch video, where you can see some of the gameplay footage to help you make your decision.

    So they’re going to get Wii U fans to fund the whole thing then it’ll end up going to all platforms only to later reveal that the Wii U version will get delayed in favor of the others even though we paid for the whole thing?

        I’m just being a pessimist, don’t mind me.

    • Actually, they’ll cancel the port to Wii U, then port on PS4 and Xbox One, because sales revenue wont be good enough. Then they’ll cite next gen exclusivity, only to port it to Xbox 360, because “it’s an extension of the User base”. Then they’ll port it to the Dreamcast and Ouya, because “they have a vibrant and growing indie fan base”. Then they’ll come into your house, destroy your Wii U, and punch you repeatedly in the tenders while screaming at you like Scrappy Doo, leaving you deaf and aching in your tenders.

    it will get funded by Wii U owners, then Sony will swoop in and make it exclusive 😉

    Please don’t port it to PS4/ONE. They won’t appreciate this kind of game. Especially the PS4 owners, like when everytime PS+ monthly Free games video come out, they always disliked the video just because the PS3/Vita have all AAA titles while the PS4 only have Indies games

    Ungrateful, greedy, stupid sons of a bitches! I love my PS but the fans are like the worst.
