Bear With Us is a hybrid RTS, Twin Stick shooter game. The architect lays down blueprints, and the builders must collect the resources to construct them! Survive the onslaught of bears as you build walls and towers to defend your totem.

The game was developed in 48 hours by a team of 5 for the 2015 Global Game Jam.

How To Play:

One player will play as the architect on the mouse. Up to four other players can play on Xbox controllers as the builders.

- The architect will use the mouse to build construction sites that require resources. They can either build a wall or a turret.
- Right click to destroy a construction site or cancel the active preview building.
- They also have the ability to freeze incoming bears by clicking on them.

- Builders move with the left stick. Right stick rotates the character.
- The builders can harvest resources (trees and rocks) by picking them up with A. Dropping them on a build site will add the resources to the building. - Walls require 1 tree. Towers require 1 rock and 2 trees.
- Pressing Y will add an exclamation mark over your character to call for help.
- Right trigger will throw spears at oncoming bears.
- If you fall down, a friend can pick you up with A and bring you back to the center to help you up.
- Adding a tree to the totem in the center will add a segment, adding health to its total.

Keep in mind: builders can't shoot while carrying objects and architects can't freeze while building!

We created this game in 48 hours over this past weekend as part of the 2015 Global Game Jam. It was a great experience, I think we're all really proud of it, and we'd love to share it with you!

Bear With Us is a hybrid RTS, Twin Stick shooter game. The architect lays down blueprints, and the builders must collect the resources to construct them! Survive the onslaught of bears as you build walls and towers to defend your totem.

The build that we created for the Game Jam is available in the downloads section for you to play right now! Please note that currently, only Xbox controllers are supported (or any other XInput device), and the game plays best with at least 3 people, but supports up to 5.

Currently, we're considering a variety of options regarding which direction we'd like to go with this game, but we have no concrete plan as of yet. If you like the game, be sure to let us know!

Hey guys, I was just trying to play it on my laptop when I came across a problem. The "Exit" and "Replay" buttons just won't disappear and the game won't let me play. Do you have an idea why this could be happening? The game looks awesome by the way!

Hey, thanks for checking out our game!
That's the "game over" screen that shows if all players have died. It also shows if there are no players, so it's most likely caused by not having any controllers plugged in. Right now, the game only supports xbox, or any other xinput controllers.
