A hand-drawn tribute to hilarious '90s adventure games (with none of the accompanying frustration). Play as Joey Claire, a puzzle-solving teen snatched out of her time (1994) and place (Earth) and stranded on a hostile alien planet on the brink of rebellion.

If you grew up playing point-and-click games, this isn’t a problem for you; if you didn’t, then keep clicking things until something clicks in your mind. The flavour text certainly is amusing at times. If you enjoy exploration, have wide music tastes, and are a sucker for top-quality animation and art, then it is highly suggested that you take a look at Hiveswap.

Hiveswap: Act One is brief, but I already have a lot of hope for the world and cast introduced here. (And the music. Oh god, yes, the music.) There’s a lot to see, and anyone looking for a light-hearted adventure will have a great time. Despite its minor bugs and short length, both Homestuck devotees and those who never experienced the webcomic will find a fantastic, humorous introduction to this new pocket of an already-massive universe.

Hiveswap is full of teenaged charm, such as Joey’s obsession with Clarissa Explains It All or her gloriously sparkly Lisa Frank posters. It’s a surreal world where monsters can pop out of nowhere and a mysterious portal in the attic can send you shooting through space to an alien planet without any warning. The combat system is baffling but entertaining — in one battle, I think I actually killed something with paprika — and I’m interested in learning more about Joey and the adventure she’s found herself on.
