A downloadable game for Windows

Hivemind is an action-arcade game with a heavy focus of power in numbers. Under the threat of extermination, the great Hive King takes matters into his own hands to stop those threatening his presence. Recklessly using his loyal bee subjects, he can take back what once belonged to him before the wild life and Hazmats eliminate him once and for all. None shall usurp him of his power!

Hivemind was made in 48 hours for the Stay Safe Jam, revolving around the given theme of 'Solidarity'. As the theme implies, working together is the main idea behind most mechanics. The player is at their strongest when they have lots of bees, and can do very little when alone. Join forces with more and more bees as you go along and conquer as one!

 Cool game :0

This is Sun-bee-am :)

By my accounts he has: 440-450 items and more than 600 bees

His stats:

Too many bees

Basically can't be damaged, 99%  chance of blocking a hit

When hit, goes invulnerable for 10 seconds

Each enemy drops  more than 20 coins

Enemy projectiles don't move

Bees deal too much damage... I can't use them though, they are in space my dude

Bees shoot stingers that are actually deadly and  they do it from all sides

All bees found on flowers are in pairs more than 99% of the time

Items are not always, but very frequently on sale

A single stopm from this fella will kill anyone 

Beeconomy is useless to him because he broke the economy

But most of this stuff he can't use because when he enters a room, it instantly ends, it ends so fast, the timer flickers not on 1 or even 2 but on number 3

My bees are.... somewhere?

Now is time for trivia!

Each world has 18 rooms with enemies, 2 shops and 4 flower rooms

A full run has you going through 54 boo-boo badie rooms, 6 greedy shop rooms (best rooms) and 12 bloomy flowery rooms with peons in them

Rooms go in an order (e-enemy, F-buddy, S-slick shop):


Cool game!


I love shitemind


i love the game but i would love it more if i was able to adjust the volume 


The game was made in 2 days, adjusting the volume was way out of our scope. The windows volume mixer does good enough.


Awesome game! We featured it in our latest video! You can check it out here if you’re interested!


Commenting here to say that out of all the games I played from the Stay Safe Jam, this is the ONLY one I felt was a good enough game to warrant bookmarking the page and keeping it to play again in the future. Really hope you continue to update and improve the game, it's already incredible. Awesome art, cool design, so many enemies/upgrades/environments.
