Huggy Bear

East Bay Molyjam 2012 represent!

“You are a bear but for some reason your oxygen comes from hugging people. Problem is that hugging people breaks their bones.” -Peter Molydeux.

    Loved the Quake-style announcer. I was able to get 5040! Good work.

    Thanks!

    There was a bug in the game where people had blue faces as well. I’m a little sorry we fixed it.

    I love it! We also did a MolyJam game called UNBEARABLE along the same concept. I’m particularly thrilled that your mood degrades until you end up in tears. Very Molyneux!

    Loved the game. The art was particularly charming. Excellent job. Molyneux would be proud.

    Amazingly well done. I loved the balance between mood and oxygen and the “huffybear” powerup.
    At a certain point, it really started hitting home, and I just decided to end it all, hugging until I broke down crying…
    Just…
    Wow.

    Thanks, everyone!

    I did try to balance it so you could go indefinitely — not sustain a combo indefinitely, but the overall game, with your combo feeding back into your mood meter.

    I couldn’t come up with a good way to justify why coming down from a high would put you in a better mood the more people you killed, but hey, jam games! And your story of growing self-loathing totally justifies it in my head.

    Hey, this turned out great! :-) Beek did a good job on the music, too; it fits in really well. And I’m impressed by the economy of brush strokes in the art.

    … Yay, concept art!

    Hahahahaha, I’m laughing so hard right now :D Great idea!

    Shame the points drain but there’s no overall ‘score’ counter to encourage replays to beat previous scores noted on a final screen. Otherwise, I played this at least 3 times, the 3rd time getting at least 10 huffy bear powerups.

    Woot, unlockable concept art :)

    Interesting… I found that if you grab the Huffy Mode at the same time your oxygen runs out, you go into indefinite Huffy Mode until the screen blacks out.

    Hey great game, I heard about it from the ‘Sup Holmes’ cast.
    I really came at it from the self loathing aspect as well. I felt very sorry for this poor pathetic bear and had to end it for the utilitarian good.

    hahah, what an awesome game


    Laura, 2013-02-25 17:02:42

    :(

    I love the credits music! The game itself was odd, but mania mode was… fun?
