Description
Release date: Late 2015
Bear With Me is a classic 2D, black and white, point´n´click adventure game which mixes noire mystery & horror elements in a cute style filled with puns.

The Game

Bear With Me (pun intended!) is inspired by the great point and click classics like Monkey Island and Grim Fandango, that we we still remember dearly. These games were played among generations, and although it´s hard to plan such greatness for a game, Bear With Me seeks to bring you the same quirky humor, strange adventures and noir fun of familiar titles, set in a black and white "horror" atmosphere.

  • Classic point´n´click mechanic, explore the game with movement and interaction,
  • Hundreds of interactive items to explore, the mystery unfolds in Amber's house which is full of objects you can interact with,
  • Dialogues and interrogations full of puns, sarcastic, dark and funny from start to finish,
  • Collect and combine items to solve the case of Amber's missing Brother,
  • Play both Amber and her hunter Red giving you the ability to control the non-linear story and make choices on your own.

The Story

You play Amber, a 10 year old girl. In the middle of a dark and stormy night strange sounds wake you up. You soon discover that your 12 year old brother, Flint, has gone missing. To get to the bottom of what is going on you seek out the help of an experienced private eye, Ted E. Bear, who happens to be your fluffy toy.

While finding the first clues you soon discover that something very strange is going on in the house. There is a Red presence which does not seem friendly at all. The plot thickens while you are given the opportunity to control both Amber and Red and thus shape the hunter-hunted scenario.


The Characters

Amber
Amber is a bright girl who likes crime novels and mystery movies and dislikes anything stupid. When she finds out that her brother's gone missing she sets out to find him, relying only on her wits, healthy dose of sarcasm and her trusty, mystery solving companion Ted E. Bear.

Ted E. Bear
Mr. Bear is an experienced private "snoop" whose years of crime solving took their toll on his "sunny" disposition. Although Ted E. gave up on the world of intrigues and mystery years ago he becomes suspicious of Flint's disappearance. His stuffed heart can't bear to see Amber down so he takes on the case, with a bad feeling in his gut.

Red
Amber and Ted E. still don't know much about this presence. Help them solve the mystery and shed a light on this dark, haunting persona.

Gameplay

Classic point´n´click mechanics
All of the exploration, movement and interaction is performed with classic point&click mechanics (or point&tap if we reach the tablet stretch goals). You can move the characters through the rooms of the house and interact with any item you see, moving the story forward while solving the mysterious case.

Hundreds of interactive items to explore
The mysterious case unfolds in Amber's house in which every room is full of objects you can interact with. A lot of them tell you more about Amber and her brother through her sarcastic comments. We are considering an integrated optional hint system to remove the need of aimless clicking.

Dialogues and interrogations full of puns
Starting with our sarcastic characters commenting and interacting with their environment, through funny dialogues filled with famous gaming and movie quotes all the way to Ted E.´s cute but unsuccessful interrogation methods - Bear With Me is full of, to quote a fan, "Bears, puns and noire mystery"

Collect and combine items to solve the case
Find and collect the clues and evidence scattered through out their big home which will lead you to reveal more of this "horror" story and tell you what´s really happening with Amber´s brother Flint.

Play both Amber and her hunter Red
One of the features we love the most about Bear With Me is the players ability to control both the hero and the villain, Amber and her hunter Red. This gives you a great deal of choice in the unfolding narrative, granting you the power to shape the bizarre events in your own taste.
