Multiplayer Sci-Fi Alien Shooter Hive Jump Coming to Wii U

Not for the faint hearted

Undoubtedly drawing inspiration from classic sci-fl horror flicks such as Ridley Scott’s Alien, indie game developer Graphite Labs has revealed via Twitter that it will be bringing its own video game adaption of this classic genre to the Wii U.

Thanks to Nintendo’s “open arms” towards indie development, Hive Jump will be able to offer Wii U owners a fun, frantic and fast-paced multiplayer shooter experience in the style of a beloved 2D platformer. Attached is a back-story, adding a little extra meaning to all the flying bullets, explosions, and alien slaying on-screen.

There’s not much else to reveal right now except for the fact the title is likely to appear on the Wii U in the form of an eShop release – and that it is also slated for a PC release – so while you wait for more details, check out the dark but fluorescent trailer of Hive Jump below, and let us know if you'd be keen on shooting-up some alien baddies in the near future.

Thanks to Jelani Thompson for the tip.
