Updated to v1.1 to fix some small stuff
  • Town map now shows 'My Apiary' instead of '\PN's Apiary' as \PN didn't actually change into your playername.
  • Made an event interactable by moving it 1 tile down
    Uxie event in the Apiary
  • Added Tedddiursa and Ursaring to the Pokédex.
  • Fixed a small tiling error in the apiary with the shed's shadow.
  • Fixed a bug that would prevent you from catching Pokémon after seeing the credits.
    • If you would like to keep your save data, talk to Vespiquen in the shed to enable catching pokemon again.
  • Fixed passability error with plants in the Secret Passage.
That's it for this minor update! If you encounter any more bugs, feel free to contact me on discord at Voltseon#2012 or feel free to leave a reply!
Happy Honey Hunting!
 
This game is fantastic! The core gameplay loop is simple yet addicting, and there's enough rewarding systems in place to keep you coming back for more! It's a very polished experience that I would recommend to anybody who is looking for a short and sweet fangame! A game as sweet as... honey!

I did a full playthrough on my channel, with Voltseon in the chat helping me and showing me a couple "tips and tricks"!

(Also can you believe Voltseon made this in 4 days? What a legend!)

Small post update:

I've been working on making this game even better, graphics, story and gameplay wise.
Farming honey will be even more fun now in the upcoming update!

It's just about ready to be released, though I'm waiting for the jam results to come in and for the voting period to end so that updating the game doesn't influence the votes / disqualify Beekeeper.

Anyways, happy farming honey and playing the other Jam games!

Beekeeper is fantastic! Everyone should play this game.
I stopped at the end of day 14 having bought all 20 nests and with 100K in my pocket. My honey empire eagerly awaits whatever is next for Beekeeper. Well done, Voltseon!

Version 1.2 is out!
It's finally time, after like 4 months now, I've finally finished the new version. Now, to be frank, I didn't really spend all of those 4 months working on this update, it had been ready for a while but got pushed back because of v19 releasing. I wanted to update the game to v19 but got stuck. Anyways, here's the update in v18! Including a lot of graphical updates and more content as seen in the screenshot.
Also I want to give a lil' shoutout to @Cadeorade5 with his amazing 5 minute review on the game:

Changelog:

  • Updated inside tilesets to fit with the gen 4 style.
  • Made all overworld NPCs and characters gen 4 style.
  • Updated the character sprite to be gen 4 style.
  • Introducing Incense Combining, craft some amazing incenses with this feature.
  • A new character, Annie joins you in the Apiary.
    • Annie appears on the Apiary once you've unlocked all the Honey Nests.
    • Annie can protect the Apiary from attacking Pokémon for a small fee.
  • Updated the Pokémon attacking system, depending on the current day Pokémon will more frequently attack your honey nests.
  • Added new Incenses and Incense features, check them all out!
  • Added a way to generate eggs, check out the Secret Passage for more!
  • Honey Craze was added as an ability for the special Toxicroak.
    • Honey Craze consumes honey in a pinch, restoring its health and changing form.
    • Depending on the Honey's quality it will have additional effects.
  • Added money to the pause menu.
  • Toggle autosaving from the options screen.
  • Added a sleeping kit.
    • Note: The sleeping kit might not work in some cases and might require more testing, if you do find any bugs relating to the sleeping kit please report them!
  • Added a secret room, see if you can find it! ;)
  • Fixed a lot of priority and passability issues.
  • Fixed several bugs such as Toxicroak not being given if you have a full party.
Note, I might have missed some updates as most of the updates were made to the game almost 4 months ago and I don't have great memory!
I wish everyone happy gathering!

Also one big thing I forgot to mention is that this version of Pokémon Beekeeper runs on MKXP, so no more laggy map parts.

This game is really well made! The gameplay loop might be the same but it keeps you engaged and there's just enough rewards to give you the want to play more! The way you structured the game is also really good. This is also really polished, good job :D
