Posted by on

HELLO AND THANK YOU to anyone taking the time to read this! This is a quick article about the updates, changes and new features to Giant Bear Rampage! The Anniversary Update or V1.05!


My name is Mikey and I'm a one-man indie developer, I had developed the original release of the game on a laptop that was old and was barely over 720p in resolution, since then I have managed to update my hardware and work on it again.

I returned to Giant Bear Rampage to give it a new coat of paint for the 3-year anniversary! 🐻
