(In my best Attenborough voice.) Bees are incredible creatures, they help spread so much of the natural world we know, on their tiny wings and caked in their signature yellow and black hair. But, bees are in danger of dying out, and this is something we all need to bee made aware of, because without bees, life as we know it would drastically change. Entire ecosystems rely on their work-a-day lives, and education around this is of the utmost importance. (Now in my own voice.) So developer Varsav Game Studios has looked to videogames, with Bee Simulator...

Which we've obviously reviewed. And as I touch on in my review, there are myriad simulation games out there, but this one takes education to the right level. Here's a snippet:
Out of the gate, this isn’t going to be everyone’s jam. It’s cutesy and kid-friendly. But the educational component that it does come with, is to be applauded. Secondly, it was built in Unreal Engine and looks very nice for an Indie release. But most importantly, you get to fly around an entire Central Park-inspired, err, central park. Naturally with a game setting like that, you do bee things -- collect pollen, bring the pollen back to your hive and avoid dangers such as pissy wasps and hornets. But as this is still a videogame, Varsav has injected other gameplay things to do. You’ll race other bees through rings and across the environment. You’ll help squirrels who are forgetful. You’ll scare away kids stomping on the park’s flowers; your actual source for survival. You’ll also fight those wasps and hornets. You’ll dance with fellow bees to get or give directions. You’ll even get trapped in spider webs and have to play a mini game in order to escape lest you be wrapped up as a meal for another day.
