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?”
