Super Rude Bear Resurrection [official site] seems like a game with one trick up its sleeve – when you die, your corpse can be used as a platform. That means you can brute-force your way through levels by jamming a corpse onto every spike, or making piles of dead bears to make a shortcut to higher platforms. You could even make bear stairs if you were so inclined. I’ve played a fairly large chunk of a very recent build and what’s clear is that what might have started as one idea has become many ideas. In fact, there are so many variations on corpse-usage that even a gathering of notable taxidermists would be astounded.
It’s out May 5th and even though Rude Bear himself feels like a nineties attempt to create a Sonic-like mascot for the Amiga, I crave it.
