About APICO

About this game

APICO is a laid-back beekeeping sim game about breeding, collecting, & conserving bees!

Leave your boring city job behind to return to your family home in Port APICO and get back to your beekeeping roots.

Set in a series of lush environments, APICO uniquely combines resource gathering, biology, and beekeeping minigames, taking ideas from a mix of real-life and fantasy apiculture & floriculture.

On your journey, you'll rediscover lost species, cross-breed new bees, and help repopulate the islands.

  • Live out your wildest beekeeping fantasies – sting-free!
  • Unique crafting & beekeeping minigames that drive gameplay progression
  • Cross-breed different bees to discover over 30 new species
  • Make and sell honey, Apicola, and other beekeeping products
  • Repopulate lost species and release them back into the wild
  • Multiple biomes to explore, each with their own unique bee species
  • Uncover the forgotten secrets of the APICO islands
  • Play together with friends in 4 players' online co-op!

APICO is being created by the TNgineers, two brothers - Ell & Jamie, inspired by their love of casual and crafting games.

They wanted to make something relaxing, intriguing, and semi-educational (just don't think about the magical bees). Ell builds nice things and Jamie makes sure he breaks them.

Bees are integral to our gameplay, as they are to our real-world ecosystem.

We want to promote bee conservation and will be donating a portion of sales towards national and international beekeeping charities.

You can also find other ways to help do your part on our website.

We post regular updates of our development progress on both Twitter, Discord, and Guilded as well as important announcements, stupid GIFs, and cute pics of bees - what more could you want?

APICO is an amazing game but only for a very specific crowd. It took me 2 tries and multiple weeks in between to finally get into it. Everything in APICO is very complex - from crafting to breeding, to collecting all possible species of bees, flowers and butterflies. I genuinely apprehciate everything the game has to offer but even I think that it is very overwhelming at times. The game wants more and more from you and at some point it will become too much. Eventually the conditions for breeding bees or finding butterflies become very very specific and it becomes a chore to fulfil them. This is quite sad as it makes this game feel more like work than fun. I majored in biologie in school and had a special interest in genetics, and i still somewhat struggle with the breeding mechanic in APICO. In theory it is easy but with more specific conditions success becomes more and more luck-based and time intensive to get somewhere. Even for the easier "assignments" you often have to try multiple times to get results, which is sometimes quite annoying if every breeding cycle takes a chunk to time. You have to be really into the grind and theory of the game in order to want to play it for longer, so while i want to recommend it, i also think that people should be fully aware of what they are getting.

Cute stress-free game about bees. You learn to play with the help of Grandpa's Guide which gives you tasks in smaller bits instead of everything all at once, you even get helpful rewards for completing the tasks. I play on my Steam Deck and love it!
