Homestuck, the cult webcomic, is getting its own spin-off video game. If you’re not familiar with it, you may recognize it from the many Homestuck cosplayers who frequent anime conventions. (You know, those cosplayers with the horns and grey face paint?)

The point-and-click adventure game is called Hiveswap, and it’s coming out this spring. (The Kickstarter project raised over $2.4 million.) The game will have a different story from the comic, since it’ll be following a young human girl, Joey, who gets transported via a portal to Alternia, an alien planet. She teams up with a bunch of troll rebels so that they can save the world and find her way home.

Check out the concept art and screenshots below.

Hiveswap will be available for the PC, Mac and Linux this spring.
