This may not be enough to go off, but I have been searching for a video game I played a demo of in the 90's.

My only memory is a cut-scene, I think to introduce the game, of (I think) killer bees descending on a village in a green, forested environment. The cut-scene was from the point of view of the bees/attacking creatures, and you could see people in the village scattering as the attackers descended and reached it.

My memory is very vague, so it's highly likely I'm mixing elements. I just wanted to see if there's an obvious candidate.

  • Were they definitely bees, or could they have been wasps? And were they normal-sized? Did they only appear in a cut scene, or did you then have to fight them or deal with them in some way?

  • (This is not just me being a pedantic entomologist; I vaguely remember a game that featured a fight with giant wasps which was used as part of a regular call-in competition on 90s Saturday morning television; if the cut-scene was followed by a fight with giant wasps it might be worth looking up...)

  • I know my description was quite vague; however what I included in the description was the extent of what I could remember; I would've preferred to give more detail! I believe though that Ludo21South's answer below is correct Commented Nov 13, 2020 at 19:19
  • No problem, that's understood - but I assumed if you remembered the cut-scene you'd remember if they were normal-sized or six foot high

I'm going to go with Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall.

This has the jungle environment and the intro is a scene displaying a swarm of bees trying to invade a village, as can be seen in this clip: Entomorph intro scene.

  • Hey! Good answer. could you add some more details (such as maybe the video of the cut-scene you mention)? It might be on YouTube or some other sites.

  • Wow, well done on very little info! It's so different from the memory in my mind's eye, but I'm sure that's it. Thank you! Commented Nov 13, 2020 at 19:22
  • That was a game with what seemed like a lot of potential, but it was a real disappointment.

  • Glad I could help. I got triggered by the bees cutscene, mostly because this game was the first one I bought on CDROM from my own money so I have seen that cutscene alot. Also @Buzz: I agree, it was pretty disappointing.
