With no prior knowledge of the Homestuck web comic series needed, the second part of the video game adventure is out now with HIVESWAP: ACT 2.
"The artistry and humor of the golden age of adventure games meet hand-drawn 2D animation in this love letter to the point-and-click classics. Bizarre, beautifully illustrated alien landscapes and colorful characters make Alternia a joy to explore."
You don't even need to play the first act, as it contains a nice in-game recap although you don't really get the full deal unless you do play through the first part, especially as it can take your decisions from the first game. The good news there is that HIVESWAP: ACT 1 is currently 50% off on Steam making it £2.79 until December 1 so don't miss out on a fun adventure series. There's going to be four parts too, so get stocked up ready.
For ACT 2, it looks to be another hit. A day since release and it's already rated "Very Positive" from Steam users, so that's a good sign for the next two episodes - hopefully they won't be another three years apart though.
You can find HIVESWAP: ACT 2 on Steam with 10% off until December 2. Only the first part is currently on GOG.
