this is a guide to one of the MANY ways of completing hiveswap: act 2! there are tons of ways to do each and every section, but here is a resource for some things to try if you’re having a bit of trouble or just want to see what others have done. best of luck!

introduction and warning

okay! I made a previous post about the post-trial game and i also made a recording of me playing through everything… but the music was too loud to hear me talk :|. so, i’m just going to make a full write-up of what to do because i have literally nothing else going on. as a little disclaimer, there are multiple ways you can go about things in this game. if a choice seems inconsequential and you want to make a different one, go for it! i’m a text post, not a cop. this is just the way i did it, and you are by no means obligated in any way, shape, or form to follow my actions to the t.

WARNING: spoilers. kinda obvious, but some stuff is gonna be spoiled! i highly recommend only looking at parts you need to know as to keep everything fresh! i’ll do my best to be secretive about actual game info, but i’m writing this warning before the actual walkthrough so i don’t know how successful i’m gonna be. that being said, here goes!
