Several native solitary bee species live and explore in this small but fertile park. During the day, each bee enthusiast (the players) protects the native bees by growing one of the five species of plants, helping bees find flowers to pollinate, making bee hotels and collecting bee bread.
Despite all this good work, players will need to deal with the ravenous appetite of one of Australia’s most invasive species – the rabbit.
Hover is a science themed conservation game that focuses on the Australian native solitary bees. Read Project Dossier – Hover for a full overview of the design process of Hover.
