Rude Bear Requiem

by Alex Rose - Jam Entry

YOU CAN PICK THINGS UP ONLY IN NORMAL BEAR FORM. (You can become normal bear at any time by transforming into the same thing twice, like pressing 1 and 1 again).

The long awaited 12th game in the Rude Bear series, and the cutest!

Play in this cute, cute world. It's really cute and that's it, no super hard bosses for once. Join Rude Bear as he helps a fellow bear out collecting trinkets, and then help him return to where he came from afterwards.


PICK THINGS UP BY WALKING INTO THEM AS NORMAL RUDE BEAR. (Which you can do by transforming into the same form twice).

Transform with 123 or XCV and use updownleftright or WASD (sorry AZERTY people, wasd is fine, not sorry DVORAK people, change your layout).. or.. use a controller!

Space/Z are used to interact/do ability.

A use/throw or do ability in transformed mode, BXY transform, stick move.

Without having played all of the Rude Bear games, this is my favorite of those I HAVE experienced. The music does a great job of setting the mood, too.

:0 it got weird, the music is super awesome!!! It was tough to navigate and get a hold of the controls, especially the shield seemed off. Everything felt kinda floaty, and I think I'd like it a lot more if there was more to the powers than matching them with the NPCs. Still I had a lot of fun with it :D good job yall

Great, now I have to get a priest in to exorcise my computer! Be aware that I will be sending you the bill...

Aside from the inconvenience of having my hard drive possessed, I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Fantastic visuals, sound and atmosphere. Neat control scheme. Awesome twist. Hail!

It was a bit confusing to figure out what I was supposed to do. But, I liked the art style and the audio.

Wow, really really good. I love a game with a twist and yours was very satisfying. I love the crass contrast and especially that you get to run around in the nice world and see what you have done. The music really works in favor of the game.

The only room for improvement I have is that the balloon form could use a shadow to indicate that we are actually flying up. Other than that a great entry and one of the most memorable games so far.

The wobble walk was a nice way to bring character to the simple animations and worked really well. Liked the music and visuals and the simple puzzle aspects between the changes and characters needs was well done. That poor cat stuck in the tree.

Thanks to the first comment, the plot twist has been ruined for me. The premise was interesting, and the music is great. The animation has a certain charm to it, and it was clear a lot of anti-frustrating measures were added in to create a streamlined experience. Overall, had a pleasant experience.

Due to the lack of variety in the world's visuals, it's easy to get lost in the game. I feel like the game could have used a bit more sound effects, such as the rain sound. The camera is also completely out of wack. It was hard to focus on any single element because the super-quick camera attempting to follow the direction where you're going vs. what you actually want to focus on.

It's also a pet peeve of mine that the game is basically a fetch quest with a few escort missions thrown in (not a fan of either of those). The latter half did a better job of adding gameplay variety, and I was a fan of the after-story when the other personality subsides.

Well that was unexpected! I feel like I should have known. :)

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
