APICO Butterfly Update | Trailer

First up, we’re welcoming some new faces – Cody and Sto, all the way from the mainland, are joining us on the APICO Islands, looking to push the boundaries of their research. Get ready to learn a thing or two from these curious newcomers.

But what’s this? Butterflies too? You heard it right, folks! You can now discover, collect, and breed a plethora of brand-new pollinators. And speaking of newbies, we’ve also got solitary bees joining the party. These little pollinators are real introverts, preferring to keep to themselves. Craft new solitary bee hotels to make them feel right at home!

You know what they say – variety is the spice of life, and APICO 2.0 is certainly embracing that philosophy. We’ve got a delightful range of new flowers to keep our pollinator population cheery and thriving. Plus, the addition of incense and candles means you can add some serious ambience to your environment.

If you’re a fan of the chill tunes in APICO, we’ve got more good news – there are brand new tracks being added to the soundtrack. Let’s not forget the new books, decorations, and a whole host of quality-of-life improvements that will certainly keep you buzzing!

And remember, APICO isn’t just about having fun. It’s a game with a cause. A portion of the profits goes toward bee conservation, meaning every time you play, you’re also helping our fuzzy little friends out there in the real world. Isn’t that a comforting thought?

So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and explore this new bee-autiful update, and don’t forget to share your thoughts on APICO 2.0: I Can’t Beelieve It’s Not Butter(flies) in the comments below or over in our Gaming.Buzz Community Discord. We’re buzzing to hear your thoughts!

And here’s a challenge for you: In your first playthrough of the new update, try to cross-breed a new species of bee and share your discovery with us. Let’s see who can find the most unique combination!

Keep on buzzing, gamers! We’ll see you in the APICO Islands.
