The world is a difficult place right now. I can not advocate turning a blind eye to struggles and hardships, but for those who've had an eyefull and need a break, I made a nice little game about cute bees that might make your day a little brighter <3 cheeseness.itch.io/hive-time youtube.com/watch?v=w4M6-zkLN6

I really need to start designing t-shirts that aren't covered up by/won't be rubbed off by my camera bag strap...

My plan is to make these available with 0% markup so that they're as cheap as possible for people who're excited enough to get one - if you want money to go to me, buying the game/giving me a tip on Itch or supporting me on Patreon are the best options ^_^

Got a few alternative designs on the way for the discerning bee who wants something different

Something fun arrived today. These and a couple of other designs will be available on 's 1 year hiveversary on the 12th of Beecember (which will hopefully be enough time to get some better shots -_- )

Tonight's feature has been chat integration. Special bees can be named after active chat participants, and their messages will be relayed as in-game speech bubbles next to their bee 🐝💬

I'm working on/testing some new Hive Time features. Come bee a bee with mee! 🐝🐝🐝 twitch.tv/valiantcheese/

Rest in peace, Arecibo. For anybody who hasn't stumbled across it, this short story by Ted Chiang is very good and very bittersweet.

Just got around to updating the Cheese Talks supporters page with some new Patreon supporters. Thanks to everybody past and present who's believed in my work and my art to the extent that they're willing to give me some money. It often moves me to tears ♥️ cheesetalks.net/supporters.php

Did a quick little concept sketch for something that Underflow Studios is working on while discussing gameplay stuff. Super rough, but I think it captures the kind of mood we were talking about.

A nice essay on city building/resource management games, and how they frame the value of their worlds, with a focus on the way that Terra Nil mechanically expresses something that stands in stark contrast to its contemporaries in the genre. youtube.com/watch?v=NT0KvXMyFg

These two friends spent all day preening each other on top of my bird feeder. I think they might be planning to make an egg.

Going to stream some work on some Hive Time art, and maybe some other things for a bit twitch.tv/valiantcheese/
