We at King Crow Studios are excited to announce our newest game HIVE SLAYER is now available on Steam and for VR headsets. HIVE SLAYER mixes classic quarter machine arcade gameplay with the power of VR to transform you into the galaxy’s deadliest defender.


As a special offer, we’re giving away Hive Slayer 100% FREE, but we are asking that you donate whatever you can afford to the Community Foundation for Southwest Louisiana Hurricane Relief & Recovery fund through the Hive Slayer Donations and downloads can be made through the Hive Slayer or by going directly to the CFSLHRF site.

We are based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. On top of the global pandemic that everyone must deal with, us Louisianians are dealing with the aftermath of two deadly and massively destructive hurricanes, Laura and Delta. These catastrophic forces have displaced tens of thousands of people. They have destroyed homes, local business, and lives.


The impact of the hurricanes has hit us on a very personal level. Our founder Cody Louviere has been traveling multiple times a week to Lake Charles, Louisiana - hurricane ground zero. A Lake Charles native, he’s been working with his own family - his mother, his father, and siblings - to try to save and repair their homes in the middle of these back-to-back natural disasters. 

About Hive Slayer

HIVE SLAYER blends classic style with the power of VR to make you the galaxy’s deadliest defender. An endless legion of alien monstrosities, the XenoHorde, threatens mankind’s galactic empire. You are the last surviving member of the Hive Slayers, the galaxy’s best and last defense against alien threats. Equipped with your matrix gauntlet and plasma blaster your mission, designated B.A.B., is as simple as it is deadly: Survive the endless XenoHorde, bring mankind back from the brink, and Blast All Bugs.


Hive Slayer embraces its arcade roots with multiple game modes, power-ups, enemy types, and more. Challenge your friends to see who can get the highest score in local play or embrace your inner sharpshooter and climb to the top of the online leaderboards. 

Save the Galaxy, Support Our Community

As we said early, we are a local Louisiana indie developer. In order to help support the Louisiana community affected by Hurricanes Laura and Delta, King Crow Studios will be donating 100% of net proceeds received through the Hive Slayer page to the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana’s Hurricane Laura Relief & Recovery Fund. The fund places a focus on providing food, shelter, medicine, and all other necessities needed to stabilize those most in need and grants for future long-term recovery.   


Download Hive Slayer now from or Steam.
