A downloadable game for Windows

BEE AWARE! IS NOW ON STEAM! Hurry to the store and get your copy today! Or don't! Spend your hard earned cash on a couple of beers that you pee out in the morning and leave you questioning… why? Your choice ;]-


Bee Aware!, an active clicker game by Danny E.K. van der Kolk! For ages 10 to 122!

Help the bees get rid of all the bad, bad industrialists on every continent with the use of bags of biological pest control. Earn these bags by playing seven minigames. Games that will surely fit the needs of every casual gamer! As a bonus, there are two hidden mini-minigames! See if you can find them!


Fun and relaxing gameplay for the casual gamer (perfect for a rainy day).
Beautiful ambient music (per game) by Polish composer Jacek Dojwa  and by Georgke, who composed Ambience Composition.
There's a total of 9 different songs in the game!
Beautiful images (well, some).
Some cool sound effects.

The game runs in fullscreen mode, with an optional slideshow in the back.
In the demo you get to play two games, Bee vs. Mites and Bee Puzzled, as well as the main game, where you can spend points that you've earned in the minigames. And... you'll get 4000 points as a bonus! When you buy the full game on Steam, you get to keep those points, as well as any extra earned points!*

I tried it but unfortunately I got an error before it even launched: Error: spawn icacls returned code 6

Hi lucylu, thanks for the feedback! The error doesn't sound familiar to me. I did not see such an error when I installed Bee Aware! on other systems than mine. The installer and game must run on a 64 bit system. Do you have 64 bit windows? 

Greetings, Danny.

Hi again, lucylu. I searched the net and found this:


icacls is a command-line utility that can be used to modify NTFS file system permissions in Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It builds on the functionality of similar previous utilities, including cacls, Xcacls.exe, Cacls.exe, and Xcacls.vbs.
With icacls, administrators can view or modify access control lists for files and folders, to help understand and fix inherited permissions. Icacls inheritance options can be used to apply permissions to parent and child objects throughout the file structure

It seems to be a tool related to file/map permissions. Bee Aware! tries to store a save file in your user directory, so I'm guessing this might have something to do with permissions set on your system. Code 6 points in that direction, when I look for error codes in windows this one means 'can not get a handle', so no permission to save a file. Hope this helps!

Greetings, Danny.

Thanks for checking it out, unfortunately I have no clue what to do. I am using 64bit Windows. Maybe it'll work next time I reinstall my Windows system :)


Hi there,
