Hi lyoneel! Thanks for your thoughts. If you weren't aware, the game was made on Linux :)
Just to make sure there are no false expectations, we consider Hive Time to be a finished product. There'll be some patches and updates as time goes on, but it's probably best to not assume that there will be any dramatic changes.
For now, difficulty is best found by embracing voluntary constraints (building a hive with no defences, accumulating 600 jelly without ever researching jelly production, building a hive but never allowing your population to go above 60 bees, etc.) or from the negative effects provided by future queens after researching the Royal Decrees upgrade.
Hope that helps!
