B3 Game Expo For Bees Is Headed Exculsively To The Wii U

Indie game developer Famous Gamous is bringing a fun action shooter exclusively to the Wii U named B3 Game Expo For Bees.

The title, which is an obvious play on words, is a first person shooter in what looks like a mechanical beehive. Famous Gamous describes it as a blend between “the exploration of Metroid Prime and the zaniness of Animal Crossing”. Take a look the developers description of the game, which is full of bee/E3 puns:

“It’s just hours before the start of B3, the annual Game Expo for Bees. You are the brand new Security Bee at the Convention Hive. During your night shift, you were unable to pull yourself away from reading all the pre-B3 hype on B.Chat. Consequently you completely neglected your patrolling before accidentally drifting off to sleep in the Security Pod. Your adventure begins here.

How would I describe this game? I tried to blend the exploration of Metroid Prime with the zaniness of Animal Crossing. Similar to how Captain Olimar carries the KopPad, in B3 you have the B.Pad, and “download” all sorts of electro-magical apps from the B.Shop to help you solve Zelda-like puzzles OR simply surf B.Chat to enjoy some B3 Hype and maybe get some hints!

Could B3 be hiding real E3 secrets? Could the Beetronic B.Pad be anything like Nintendo’s next portable? Could Beetronic’s New System give clues to NX? Yes, Nintendo is finally packing an exclusive FPS… and you are a bee. Waiting to explore in that Metroid Prime way – consider B3! Longing for those Animal Crossing wacky conversations – consider B3! What happens if you type “RoboBear @ B3!” in Miiverse??? Will you actually conjure RoboBear?”

  1. Wow…

    It’s garbage like this that turn people off from buying Nintendo consoles.
    This game has graphics fitting for maybe the original DS but not Wii U.
    Pathetic. Looks so amateurish. Looks boring. Uninspired. Crap! Doodoo! Shit! Miera!
    I don’t think Nintendo could be failing any harder. Oh wait. I forgot “The Letter”
    Adelman must be laughing his ass off.
    Why aren’t heads rolling?!
    What a shame!!! For shame, Nintendo! I know for a fact you’ll be getting a rude awakening DX style upside your clueless heads when you realize just how bad you’ve burned fans and how even the truest of true fans start abandoning you.
    You’ve lost my trust.
    That’s a big deal.
    You have so much to prove now.
    I’m just so frustrated. This article really hit a nerve with me. Lol
    I don’t know what else to say. I’m so disappointed.

    1. What an unnecessary, garbage comment. If you doN´t like the game, don`t buy it. Btw: Its an Indie. Its not supposed to be a Graphics-showcase, dumbass ;)

  2. I don’t know why everyone is mad about the graphics of eShop titles. There are many young developers that need to get their names out there, and the Wii U eShop is the only one supporting new console developers like this. Valve and Nintendo are the two most indie-friendly companies, and yeah, not every game will be good, but it gives the developers the experience to make good ones.

  3. Seriously guys, for anyone commenting about the “quality” of games on the eshop, how about you go fcuking make a wii u game by yourself and let us criticise your game before we even touch. Cop on please. They have achieved much more than you and are actually making games for the system. Show some respect to people who are trying to make a living. How about stepping into their shoes for once, just think about it…

  4. This looks super dumb … yet oddly polished.

    If it’s cheap enough, I might actually play this. (I’ve downloaded and played worse. I finished “The Letter” … now THAT was trash)

    From what I see, if this was a game students final project … I’d give them a solid B+ (pun not intended). The Bees look super dumb, and unlikabke … but the whole thing has a dumb sense of humor I don’t dislike, and it looks way more complete than some other amateur games I’ve seen and played.

    I think it’s cool that inexpetienced new designers get a chance to put their creations out where people can buy them on Nintendos platform. Though far from looking like a hit game, I can see skill and potential here. This team may make something great someday … in a few more years.
