Yesterday we announced the KICKSTARTER BUNDLE which goes to all backers $20 and above. This will come with a unique skin for your jumper as well as a special jumper crest!


Your Jumper Crest helps you keep track of your jumper within sections of the hive as well as ID them in interface sections like the mini-map. You select your crest before the jump from a handful of options - now all backers at the $20 Tier and above will have access to the KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE CREST to ID your jumper in the hive!

In less than 24 hours we'll be on the show floor hopefully bombarded with thousands of future Hive Jump fans! We've rushed a few items through the printers and have worked in some new updates to the build. It's going to be EXCITING!

If you'll be at the show you need to STOP BY AND PLAY HIVE JUMP! We'll be on the 6th floor at booth 6122!

Release date: Summer 2015

HIVE JUMP is a sci-fi action platformer for 1-4 players blending run ‘n gun gameplay with strategic campaigns.

Hive Jump is one part Spelunky, one part XCOM, and all parts alien ♥♥♥-kicking. You and your friends assume the role of jumpers, and blast your way through subterranean alien hives in run n’ gun 2D platforming action. Kill aliens, avoid traps, collect resources, and defeat the hive queen lurking at the bottom of the hive to complete the JUMP.


  • Action Platforming: Engage in fast-paced run n’ gun combat with swarms of aliens. Avoid traps, survive ambushes, discover treasures, and more.
  • Co-op Multiplayer: Play single player, or 2-4 player co-op. (local or online)
  • Procedural Levels: Jump into procedurally generated alien hives. Level modifiers like dark levels keep you on your toes and offer new challenges to overcome.
  • Unique Permadeath: Keep the transponder backpack in one piece! It is your mobile respawn point and if it is destroyed by the aliens you have no more lives.
  • Challenging AI: Intelligent and fierce enemies await in the hive.
  • Upgradeable Sci-Fi Weapons: Pulverize aliens with pulse rifles, flamethrowers, and a variety of experimental bombs and weapons.
  • Hand-Designed Challenges: Plunder challenge rooms and uncover lost relics to upgrade your arsenal.
  • Dynamic Lighting: Experience pixel-perfect dynamic lighting using Sprite Lamp.
  • Strategic Campaigns: The results of your jumps directly impact the ongoing galactic war against the aliens. Manage your planetary campaign between jumps in a turn-based strategy mode.
  • Gamepad Support: Play Hive Jump using your favorite console controller.
  • Platforms: PC / Mac / Linux (via Steam)


In the 24th century, humanity is at war with a hostile alien race. Outnumbered a million to one, mankind’s only hope of survival is the J.U.M.P. Corps. Its mission is to fight to the alien menace hive by hive and planet by planet.

The war with the aliens is on, are you brave enough to make the JUMP?

This was super awesome playing with my younger brother who came to pax south with me. I think this will be a new MP game in our competitive brother game rotation.
