Rude Bear Relics

by Alex Rose - Jam Entry

The thirteenth game in the Rude Bear series, and the first in 3D.

Go forth, discover an old forgotten ruin, and defeat its boss.

Rude Bear Relics was made next to my booth at Insomnia while exhibiting Super Rude Bear Resurrection, and is the third Rude Bear game made at Insomnia (after Rude Bear RPG and Rude Bear Recreation). Quality therefore suffers as I was showing my main game most of the time and getting drunk a lot.

PS4 or Xbox:
Cross (or A) = Interact, finish speech.
Circle (Or B) = Hit
L2 (or LT) = L-Target. Lock the camera.
Sticks are run.

WASD, shift for l-target, space for use/talk, left click to hit.

=== Credits ===

Cheers to Jack Englert for modelling Rude Bear based on Simon Wong's design, and Manaman based on my terrible MS Paint art, along with a bunch of other stuff.
Cheers to Sophie Cook too for animation, modelling, texturing.
Cheers as usual to Atmospherium for being a general badass but in this specific instance, doing all the music.
Cheers to me too, obvs.

=== Point of all of this ===

I've never made a 3D game before so it was my experiment. I just wanted to make something Zelda-ish. I'm pretty happy with it!

My own personal feedback:
Yeah, okay, I need sound effects.
Yeah, okay, I need particle effects.
Yeah, okay, I need animation.
Yeah, the ending could be better.
The camera needs some work.
Needs a camera panning system too.
Need a snapping system.
Need a much better dialogue system.
Need a compelling suffering system (as in, HP in most games).
I also wish I wrote a generic interaction class.

I learnt a fair bit though, I think I "get" 3D game design now even though it was too late by the time it clicked, if I did another 3D jam I feel like I'd destroy it, it seems much easier than 2D to make something worthwhile.

Graphics and music is amazing. The gameplay idea is okay, but it is very buggy.

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. Many solo participants 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.
