Very cute!  Kiss

I like procedural games that simulate natural processes. I managed to plant a sizeable forest and got some purple trees and a number of bees of different colors too (what does that mean?).

My only real complaint is the magenta color of the ground which looks a bit ugly. But aside from that, good work.  Gentleman

I enjoyed the experience a lot, but it's not really how bees work.

Worry not, they are simply not burdened with the experience of bees that someone as knowledgeable as yourself is.

This game is awesome. People might come to realise that my taste in games is based almost entirely on atmosphere so things like the PoP reboot and Canalbalt really appeal to me. This fits into that niche. Or at least the last build I saw did.

This game is adorable!  The atmosphere is great... it reminds me of something I would have played as a child.

Very interesting "game" you got here. Seems somewhat flOwer inspired. I don't think the question is whether this is how bees work, but "Is this really a game?"

wow, the animation in that is really good.


I really liked the feel of this game. It was fun to make a forest and just wander around in it. I tend to agree with the previous statement about the magenta ground, though. It has a cool control scheme too, easy to use and effective.

I love the pixel flowers, and the music is really nice. Big bro, you are on a roll this year already!

I'd like to be the first to say that I want to see some more Bento Smile / Superflat collaborations pronto Smiley

Please don't start that again. It's adorable and we love it and that's enough. Smiley

I wouldn't worry about the magenta ground - together with the sky it makes for a very lovely faux-CGA feeling. Really nice.

Awsome! Really like how you tackled the classic old 2D-sprites-in-a-3D-world-ugliness by not letting the camera rotate. Hand Thumbs Up Right
(Or was it just me who didn't find out how to rotate the camera...?)

Super cute start screen and graphics too!
Maybe a little gradient at the horizon, kind of like in the start screen, to make it not so super sharp? Maybe not...

I was going to make some kind of pun about "how birds and bees work" but I have matured.

And complements to the music Beer!
