Grizzle is on a journey back to a home remembered from long ago. There's memories of the lab, the others, but nothing about what happened there. Maybe it's time those memories were brought back.

Grizzle is on a journey back home. This is a bear with only one goal... but luckily there's two guns along for the ride.

Design Notes

We wanted our player to have to make a sacrifice when choosing to shoot, but we also wanted there to be a lot of shooting. We decided that shooting with either gun should stop your forward motion so it would be a sacrifice, but then there would be no disincentive not to fire the second gun at the same time. Therefore, shooting results in an important player choice between advancing towards the goal (fighting the timer) or fighting the despicable wildlife aiming to steal your honeyed health points.

Our "feel" is highly influenced by this talk from Vlambeer's Jan Willem Nijman and we would be amiss not to give it a shout out. We should also mention that this section of Kingdom's TIGsource thread was super helpful for implementing the water reflection.

About

This is the fourth jam game from TeamHumanSimulator. All assets (sprites, sounds, music, etc.) were made during the jam and we did all the coding ourselves! We hope you enjoy the game and welcome any feedback you may have!
