Bear Go Home

It's bears!

You’ll have to excuse me if you’ve seen this one before, but the consistently excellent Indygamer just happened to link me in the direction of Bear Go Home. It’s a peculiar creature, and has washed up on our link-logging shores thanks to the Dare To Be Digital competition, which pits student game designers in a fight to the death game design competition.

Anyway, the titular bear has to head home, and you’ll get him there via pulling at bits of his anatomy with the mouse-pointer – pulling his tail and letting go to make him move faster, pulling him up by the scalp to jump, stretching his jaw to catch fruit, that sort of thing.

It all looks super cute, especially with the wrapping-paper-illustration visuals. Terrifyingly, however, the background music is some kind of looped playground chant, as sung by little girls. I can only imagine them as the little girls from The Shining. It couldn’t be more sinister if it tried.

The control method is just a little bit annoying, although the idea’s a good ‘un. I hope they can polish it up a bit more with some active hints and so forth.
