game release date for PC:
Bear Simulator for PC is a simulation game that differs greatly from other productions of this genre. As the title suggests, this production allows us to play as a bear living in the vast wilderness. Bear simulator has been created by Farjay, a one-man studio, having raised the funds for development through a Kickstarter campaign.
As a bear, we explore the game’s world and maintain our stamina by catching and eating fish, stealing honey from the bees, or consuming tasty plants. The wilds are inhabited by other animals as well, some of which might get in our way. We fight with them using the strength of bear’s paws, which are also useful for destroying objects blocking our passage. The energy we may have lost during the day is restored during the night by sleeping in our cave. We observe game’s world through first-person perspective, jokingly dubbed by the creator as FPB (First-Bear Perspective)
The stats of our bear have a great impact on the gameplay. The animal is described through such characteristics as strength, intelligence, vitality, swimming, or luck. In time they well reach new levels, resulting in the bear becoming stronger, faster etc.
The game employs three dimensional visuals. From a technical point of view, Bear Simulator for PC is far from astounding, but the developer made sure to offer diversified environments (snowy mountains, meadows and others), day-night cycle, and even changing weather.
