I started thinking about the premise of the dates our protag would go on within the context of bees - inspiration suddenly struck (or perhaps “stung” ) me: soldier recruitment!
Imagine the scene: you are a female worker bee, newly hatched and ready to serve your home and castle, the Hive! Thanks to a new initiative, all new workers can now choose their allotted role in serving in the defense of both Queen and Hive. How do they choose? A recruitment program allows any prospective worker to interact face-to-face with the various soldier types, who in turn seek workers to sign up and swell their ranks.
Our eager little worker can interact with any of the soldiers classes and see what makes them tick, soon getting to know her personal recruiter closely as a bond is formed. When it comes to making a decision, will our worker partake in the coloured honey of choice and join her new comrades as one of their own or does she still want to have some fun with her new recruiter friend beforehand?
The recruitment drive also includes the illustrious role of Scouts, who serve and feed the Queen directly, but only for special workers who are able to prove themselves!
In plain English:
- Date each of the hive soldiers, who want you to join their ranks!
- Make the choice of becoming a soldier for a soldier/soldier scene, or choose to stay a worker for a worker/soldier scene!
- Special unlockable content for dating a Scout - or to go for the big Queen herself!
