‘WHERE THE BEES MAKE HONEY’ OUT SEPTEMBER 2019 ON NINTENDO SWITCH
Switch Edition to Join PC, PS4, and Xbox Releases with New Content Release
August 1st, 2019 — Wakefield Interactive and Whitethorn Digital are excited to announce their puzzle adventure game Where the Bees Make Honey will release on Nintendo Switch this September for an introductory price of $5.99 USD (or region equivalent) — joining the current PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC editions! Added content is in store for all four platforms as well, with a new puzzle level and other improvements in the works.
Where the Bees Make Honey tells a story about reflecting on different moments from a childhood, which are played and experienced from an adult perspective. It’s a dreamy, ethereal, and thoughtfully crafted experience about nostalgia. The game is capturing that grace period in a childhood where playing dress up was larger than life and changed the environments around you.
At its core Where the Bees Make Honey is a puzzle adventure game, but gameplay variation is filtered throughout. When the game’s main character Sunny is an adult reflecting on the times when she was young, the game is played in a first-person perspective. This transition period takes place at her workplace, where she is ultimately at a crossroads with what to do next in her life.
Playable vignettes allow for the game to transition into each season. This allows for a more focused approach for storytelling and player engagement. The vignettes offer an additional perspective of the season they precede. The gameplay varies considerably between seasons, vignettes, and moments.
Where the Bees Make Honey is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $9.99.

About Wakefield Interactive
Where The Bees Makes Honey is the brainchild of Wakefield Interactive’s lone member Brian Wilson. The game was conceptualized after the recurring idea of playing pretend as kids. Through the lens of liminality, Brian wanted to capture the idea of being at one place, but being able to view it from different perspectives. This was realized after visiting a local lake over the course of his life, and understanding that the lake had stayed the same but his appreciation for it had changed as he grew older. Brian started development in early 2016 while receiving an Associate of Science degree in Multimedia Programming, Simulation and Gaming from the Community College of Allegheny County.
