Really nice game, I like the 3d environment and the bear is very scary with a dark shadow around him.

I really love the graphic style and the random things around the room. The behaviour of teddy looks pretty simple though.

Double or nothing -mechanic gave nice excitement element to the game
Finding game mechanics via exploring was nice.
Random levels give variety, but I also ended up with a level where the heart was in a totally blocked out area
Hitbox of the bear seems a bit too big

Excellent game! Had a lot of fun, the procedurally generated stuff is very impressive!

Great graphics, good music, and fun to play. Only thing missing is a better path finding algorithm, but still the best LD31 game I played so far:)

This game ticks all of the boxes; great art, fun game, great mood, and original.

We did consider adding a better path finding / AI for the teddy, but to honest it would have made the game a bit too difficult. :)

I like the perspective of looking down in the room and the creative idea of illuminating the room at only a certain radius away from the main character, as if she's holding a flashlight. I really enjoy the mysterious feeling and detail and collecting magic wands. It 's interesting to try and use the controls for opposite directions. There was one part that I got stuck and couldn't get the heart at all and even the bear looked stuck but other than beautifully done!

Excellent game. Graphically masterpiece.
Great mood.
Teddy effect - he looks like a real nightmare.
Great everything :)

loli/10 would play again

seriously, this is pretty fun. Searching for the candy while running away from the bears resulted in actual fun gameplay, and the art is cute.

Pretty cool atmosphere! The music surprisingly does fit this game :P I also used a Robert del Naja but it didn't really fit all that well XD

Is it all randomly generated terrain? Seemed so, which resulted in a few situations that were distraction from the "fun factor":
1. It looks like there's a gap but I can't get through
2. Dead end... With the bear right behind me

An indication of how many candies there are left to pick up would be great as one could easily end up wondering around looking for something that's not there and that sucks.

Luring the bear into a corner it can't get out of is a cool mechanic though I would have liked a smarter nemesis if possible :)

That description was so ridiculous long it made me laugh.
The graphics where very nice. Together with the light and the story it got me in the right mood.
But it could be a bit more fast paced for my taste.

Good game!

Nice graphics. But the bear was always stuck.

Looks great and the mood of the game is perfect! Didn't exactly get what the wands did except slowing her down and the bear got stuck from time to time...but overall good job :)

Pretty neat. Liked the graphical style a lot. Well done. :)

Sometimes it takes some luck to beat the level, but that's all good. The audio aids to build the environment very well, which is pretty impressive. The fact that this game is in 3d is amazing, too. I also did a top-down view game but I did it in 2d because I don't think I will have enough time if I were to build it in 3d...

Nice procedural level generation. Got inspired by 5 nights at freddys? ;-)
