BEEST is a super tough roguelike that sees you controlling a robotic bee who must eradicate dangerous parasites, heal sick bees and kill corrupted queen bees in an infected beehive.

The mechanics in BEEST are a little different to your traditional dungeon crawling rogue like.  Enemies are tough and the only way to regain health is to cure the sick bees in the hive.  To do this you must must drain energy from the enemies while they’re still alive, which is easier said than done as the rooms are small and the enemies are pretty relentless.  Thankfully, when killed, enemies will occasionally drop upgrades which may make things a little easier.

BEEST Has been specifically designed to be punishing to newcomers, so expect to die a lot.  But once you get to grips with the gameplay systems it’s a fun (but still punishingly tough) game.  A challenging roguelike with plenty of sting in it’s tail.

Wow. Bayer, BASF and Syngenta are suing the European Commission to overturn a ban on the pesticides that are killing millions of bees around the world.

A huge public push won this landmark ban – and we can’t sit back and let Big Pesticide overturn it while the bees vanish.

Last summer, 37 million bees were discovered dead on a single Canadian farm. And unless we act now, the bees will keep dying. We have to show Bayer and Co. now that we won’t tolerate them putting their profits ahead of our planet’s health.Sign this petition to tell Bayer, BASF and Syngenta to drop their bee-killing lawsuits now.” 

Yeah hi it’d be great if some of you could sign this petition, because it still needs like 95,000 signatures. Please spread the word, because if the bees go, we go too!!! GMO affects bees, birds, butterflies, and even fish. 

Love is not just human
Love is the cat crawling under your blankets when your drowsy eyes decide to get some rest
Love is contact
Love is the stranger’s dog jumping up to greet you when you walk by
Love is excitement
Love is a dragonfly landing on your knee when you’re sitting in the grass
Love is trust
Love is the sunlight kissing the gaps between the trees, with warmth as it rises
Love is natural
Love is two trees intertwining and combining into the same one as they grow
Love is growth
Love are the birds traveling in flocks, never leaving one to fend for themself
Love is care
Love are the plants in the window leaning, growing towards, and reaching for the sun
Love is necessary, love is reaching out
Love is the two year old at Marden’s who says hi to you even though he can barely talk
Love is innocent
Love is the water embracing ever bit you when you dive in
Love is the universe

All this bee reading I'm doing is twisting my melon, man. There's a picture in my book of a perfectly preserved bee that's 30 - 40 million years old! Bees are like tiny dinosaurs that invented twerking, the world is a wonderful place ^.^

“Bees are like tiny dinosaurs that invented twerking”

Mind. Blown.

Bees, royalty & entitled.

Space society appears very formal and puts a lot of importance on the correct use of titles. Kalique is a lady, Jupiter is a queen.

Stinger identifies Jupiter as a queen based on how the bees responed to her. He said they were genetically programmed to recognise royalty.

I believe that Jupiter outranks her ‘children’ and that if bees react to them, the reaction would be different.

Bee Fact #105

In a 1926 interview, Nikola Tesla stated that “human civilization [will be drawn] closer and closer to the perfect civilization of the bee.”

The female mind has demonstrated a capacity for all the mental acquirements and achievements of men, and as generations ensue that capacity will be expanded; the average woman will be as well educated as the average man, and then better educated, for the dormant faculties of her brain will be stimulated to an activity that will be all the more intense and powerful because of centuries of repose. Woman will ignore precedent and startle civilization with their progress.

“The acquisition of new fields of endeavor by women, their gradual usurpation of leadership, will dull and finally dissipate feminine sensibilities, will choke the maternal instinct, so that marriage and motherhood may become abhorrent and human civilization draw closer and closer to the perfect civilization of the bee.”
