Is there a release of this for Mac? You have it listed on the "Platform/System" list, but I can't find a version runnable on Mac OSX in the current uploaded release.

Great game with a lesson!

I thought this was a pretty well done game given the circumstances surrounding its creation(e.g. only 48 hours to do it, locked in a room, etc). This game did also bring one's mind to an important environmental reality, rapidly declining population of bees in the world. While this is not due to zombie hives, of course, the game does get the point that it is a rather desperate situation across.

I especially enjoyed the walls not just being static defenses that block bees but taunting devices that could be used draw enemies into the most lethal killing zone of your towers. I also really enjoyed the music which I thought captured a good atmosphere and mood for the game's subject matter.

As a side note, as someone who was once chased by a hive of yellow jackets for a quarter of a mile through thick woods, this game was especially terrifying for me to play and I really felt like keeping these bees away from me at all cost was an important objective.

Seems Cool

But there is a lot going on and I feel it is a bit confusing. The Game could really benefit from a tutorial level or maybe a few screenshots with tutorial explaining what everything is exactly and what you want it to be doing...
