    Hey bees!

    First of all we hope you had an amazing Christmas and New Year. We're hoping 2017 will be our best year yet, so we thought we'd start it off with a bang! Introducing a brand new Arcade Hub and a super duper new game... SPLOOP!

    What is Sploop?


    Sploop is a game where you must conquer the map with your teams color! There are 4 teams that battle against each other; the Red Roosters, the Green Geckos, the Purple Panthers and the Orange Oranges. Use your PaintBlaster to fire paintballs and paint the map in your teams color (they also kill people, too!). The team with the most colored blocks will win the round. Oh... you also play as a special character with different perks and incredible ultimate abilities.

    There are up to five rounds per game, unless a team wins 3 rounds, which means they will instantly become the overall winner!

    Watch the trailer above for the best overview!

    The Heroes!

    Each Hero has a "Passive" and an "Ultimate". A passive is something that is always active (so you don't need to do anything to use it...it's just working for you all the time), but an Ultimate is a special ability that can be used once you have charged it. To charge an Ultimate, get kills and paint blocks. The bar at the bottom of the screen tells you how close you are to having it! Once you have it, Press Q (or your drop-item button) to activate it!

    Currently we have four Heroes for you to choose from. We'll be adding more in the future, each with a different play style and persona. More about the Heroes are below!

    [​IMG]
    Everyone will play certain Heroes better than others. Find the best character for you and the best character for your team. The right character combinations can turn a game from a loss, to an epic victory!

    Resource Pack

    This is our first game in a while to use a Resource Pack. Why? Well, Minecrafts resource pack system sucks. However, we feel this pack really adds to the game. Every character has Ultimate sounds, random voice lines and other awesome things such as Health Packs and a... PAINTBALL GUN!

    [​IMG]
    Boards in the lobby show you Character Information!

    [​IMG]
    Custom Icons so you can easily see what they mean!

    [​IMG]
    Health Packs can be picked up during the game to save your life!

    [​IMG]
    Each team gets their own colored Paintball Gun!
    Don't forget that there's also 60 custom sounds (The trailer shows off a small amount of them!), including a narrator. If you don't like certain sounds, you can use /volume and edit which sounds you can hear, or simply change their volumes!

    Oh... also a BRAND NEW Arcade Hub!

    We felt it was time to make the Arcade Hub more lighthearted. The previous one was amazingly unique, but we wanted something more fun, colorful and light! This hub is a bit of a throwback to many peoples childhood, and we absolutely love it!

    We hope you love it too.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • How do I play?
      • The very quick summary is paint more blocks than the other team, but remember it helps to kill the enemy team to slow them down and earn your ultimate faster!
    • What is an Ultimate?
      • Every hero has a unique ultimate which can be seen on the Hero boards in the lobby, you earn it by painting blocks and killing people.
    • How do I use an Ultimate?
      • Once you’ve earned it in game you simply press Q (or whatever your keybind is for dropping items)
    • Why do I see mushroom blocks in the lobby?
      • Type /pack to load the Sploop resource pack to see everything properly! (If this doesn’t work try it on 1.11+). Also make sure you have "Server Resource Packs" enabled for The Hive, in your multiplayer server menu. Why did Mojang make this so hard?
    • Can I change the volume of sounds?
      • Yes, just type /volume at any time (even in game) to adjust everything.
    • How do I shout?
      • To shout, just put a ! at the beginning of your message. For example: !Hello there
    • You can double jump?
      • Yup! Just double tap your spacebar to zip through the air. It's very addictive.
    • Where are the leaderboards!?
    Phew! That's all there is for now. We're working on lots of new games (have you noticed how many spare slots we have in that new Arcade hub? :p). So expect lots of updates this year, and lots of maps and just... lots of fun. We're very excited.

    As always, leave feedback below. Expect some bugs as this game is very new, but we'll be patching any of them we find as soon as we can!

    Much Love,
    The Hive Team (Edvard, Mattvew, Youvi, Devvis, Vosh and Evic)

    Do I sense some inspiration from Overwatch here?

    "TORSTEIN" reminds me of Torjborn, especially with his Ultimate.
    "BOOSTER" reminds me of Lucio. especially with the health boost with his ultimate and the passive speed boost.
    The "hero icons" for what's needed.

    I'll have to give this ago at some point!

    Everything about this game is great! I've really enjoyed playing it so far and I can't wait to play more!

    still think it should have been called 'Splodge' though ;)

    Also an important ingame fact is that every kill is followed by an explosion helping you to gain more color. All in all a very nice game you can play all day long!
