I CAN’T TRANSLATE THIS SIGN! I CAN’T! IT’S JUST NOT POSSIBLE! I’M GOING CRAZY! THOSE AREN’T LETTERS, LITERALLY!

It’s been a little over three years since Hiveswap: Act 1 came out on 14/9/17, two years since the dating-esque spinoff Hiveswap Friendsim came out on 14/4/18, and it won’t be much longer now until the launch of the hotly anticipated Hiveswap: Act 2 this November! Can you believe it? I’m writing this on 10/25 and we just got the launch trailer today: it’s been eight hours, I’ve watched it ~30 times, and I’m still buzzing. …

With the release of Hiveswap’s hotly-anticipated second act finally cresting our pink and green mooned horizon this November, Joey and Xefros are set to meet — and hopefully, befriend! — our favourite (see: all) Friendsim trolls!
