Rude Bear RPG

by Alex Rose - Jam Entry


Rude Bear RPG is the origin story of the Rude Bear franchise, and the seventh game in the series.

The prequel to the smash fail Rude Bear Rising, and Preprequel to the original Rude Bear.

It uses a realtime battle system and links the worlds of Earthbound, Pokemon Red/Blue, Pokemon Gold/Silver, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy, Super Mario RPG as well as connecting different worlds (volcano, desert, forest, tower, grave).

For anyone familiar with the Rude Bear saga, it also lays the foundation of connecting Rude Bear Resurrection to Rude Bear Rising, as well as bringing back the puppet style of the original Rude Bear.

It controls entirely with the mouse. e.g. click Defend just as you're about to get hit by a powerful attack to potentially take 0 damage if you time it right.

I also ran the optional theme "Marilyn Manson" with a few others.


Rude Bear:

Bullet Time (2 $C): Slows down the game time so defense is easier.

Galvanise (4 $C): Gives 4$C to the chosen ally.

White Lightning (6 $C): Strong magic attack, targets 1 enemy.

Rain Dance (8 $C): Magic attack, targets all enemies.

Martyvate (10 $C): Sacrifices Rude Bear to fully swag out Rad Boar and Robed Bird.

Rad Boar:

Seismic Chop (2 $C): Strong physical attack.

Attention Hog (4 $C): Sticks a Kick Me sign to one ally. This ally will then take all enemy attacks. Using it twice on the same character removes it.

Boarrier (6 $C): Grants a shield to one ally, which doubles their defense until it wears off.

Hamdemic (8 $C): Sends out Swine Flu and damages all enemies with magic.

Sepporku (10 $C): Sacrifices Rad Boar to give super shields to both allies. These shields last significantly longer.

Robed Bird:

Dark Chant (2 $C): Heals all allies.

Storm Patrol (4 $C): Harms all enemies with a magic attack.

Phoenix Up (6 $C): Revives one ally and/or heals all their HP.

Scythe Bill (8 $C): A barrage of 8 consecutive physical attacks, does a lot of damage.

Bleeding Heart (10 $C): Sacrifices Robed Bird to max revive both other party members. DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY IN THIS BUILD, MAXES THEIR HEALTH BUT DOES NOT REVIVE.

good job!

One of the best joke games I've played in a long time. Though I would have liked if it was less annoying to play. Clicking on enemies, and understanding what all abilities do, was hard.

Very funny game, congrats!

This is the best game I have played this jam.

By far.

Thank you. This is basically "crossed the line twice" humor at its finest. Great gameplay, too... I couldn't beat the goddamn final boss because it kept on one-shotting the whole party, no matter what kind of strategy I tried, but damn... this was fun, and very well-balanced.

That is actually a really nice entry dude! Most likley the best game on the category "humor". The art style was also very nice and unique. Well done!

This is fucking awesome! The old Final Fantasy/Pokemon fighting style with a weird twist!
Defending is pointless after the first fight, I knew what half of the spells actually did, I had no idea who the enemies was targeting and the "ultimate" spells bugged out when I tried them. AND YET I LOVED THIS GAME, maybe because of all that bullshit, this game feels like a loveletter and hatemail combined to all those old RPG games, it's so phenomenal! Love it! <3

Enjoyed the paper-puppet art-style!

The battle mechanics are confusing, but the weird drawings-on-sticks thing you have going on is probably the most interesting thing I've seen in LD30 graphics wise. So I guess good overall??? I definitely liked it.

I really don't know what I should write, because it's just so much. I mean, it all started with entering my name and it typed Rude Bear on its own and I couldn't stop laughing. I guess I want to point out a whole bunch of things that made me cry and laugh but you should just play the game to understand it. Yes it's that kind of thing: you have to experience it for yourself -.- And it's fking HARD on a trackpad so I haven't beaten the game YET. I love rude bear, don't be afraid Alex, its integrity is still very much present hehe. Cheers!

Ru-do Bea! I was a little worried that I'd get stuck right at the title screen because I loved the intro music too much.

The fights were kinda hectic, but I managed to pull through in the end and beat the game, even though the wizard was a noodle compared to those scorpions and lava slimes.

The fact that you made this at Insomnia on a tiny laptop is pretty amazing.

You suck at drawing stairs tho.

Hi there. Sounds amazing (and loud!). Like the name entry ;) The puppet on a stick look is very unusual. Quite hard to move around at first, but very original design.

I was laughing the entire time that I was playing. Loved the references and the jokes. Great work!

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
