At the beginning of this jam I said:

So what this really means is, the next Rude Bear game has to be even better.

And that scares me.

Luckily:

    “how emBEARassing”, “get out of the fucking way bears”, “so thats where all the bodies came from” are all mine 😀

  2. SonnyBone says:

    I also left many of those quotes.

    This is a seriously awesome collection of stats and data. I LOOOOVE seeing this stuff!

    And I totally knew you could do it, man. Rude Bear TRIUMPH!

    So if another Rude Bear game comes along, it totally has to be about his meteoric fall to the bottom after rising to the top of the game world.

    • Alex Rose says:

      Thanks a lot, man, especially for your support.

      I couldn’t have made it without you!

      Seriously, if you hadn’t done your Rad Game Roundup in Ludum Dare 25 I would’ve never used Rude Bear again.

      The Wizard wouldn’t have been invented in Rude Bear Rising. With no persistent protagonist, Rude Bear Radio would’ve felt like a ripoff, and the “Radio” idea only came around because we were thinking of “RBR” words.

      Without “The Timeline” (which we haven’t actually told anyone), the ideas like going Super Saiyan on the roof etc. would’ve never happened, plus there would be no wizard, no fairy, no bear, no narrative. There probably wouldn’t have been a tower. In fact, the game would probably have been about corrupting other people’s game world rather than one tower.

      Like, without you, Rude Bear would be nothing, and I may well have come up with 3 bad ideas or ones that didn’t push me because I wasn’t running by the idea of “Let’s make a game that puts Rude Bear in a completely different situation”.

      semper dilectum Ludum Datorem mei eris.
