Spread love through hugs! You're a forest bear which carries a curse. Your oxygen comes from people's hug with you, problem is that you're still a bear and if you hug someone for too long, it'll be dead in no time. In order to break your curse and make the world a better place, hug the old corporate owner in the center of the city, who has no love in his heart at all.

This game was made during the Molyjam competition (Game Jam with 48 hours duration in which you should create a game based on one of Peter Molydeux's tweets, a parody of Peter Molyneux, for more info google 'Molyjam'). The tweet we choosed was: "You are a bear but for some reason your oxygen comes from hugging people. Problem is that hugging people breaks their bones."

We enjoyed the result, and decided to post it here. We hope you enjoy it too.

We still can't believe it! "Daily 4th Place", "Frontpage Featured Games of May" and thousands of views! This is a lot more then what we were expecting! Thank you very much, guys! :D

We don't pretend to change anything in the game, the intention here was to show what we've managed to create during the game jam. Though, in a last modification I've added some more instructions about volume control and how to pause the game, which already was possible before since it's a flixel default feature. Sorry, our bad, we forget about letting it clear.

Thanks for your comments, we've read them one by one. And again, we thank you all for playing.

I'm gonna be honest, I never thought I'd see the day when a game is made about a bear hugging people within an inch of their life as the main drive.
But that day is apparently today.

The game itself is fun, amusing and amiable, the pixel graphics give it great charm. I didn't notice any changes gameplay wise with the upgrades, I don't know if it slows down the Hug metre or not. But it would have been funny if; as you progress through the upgrades, people stop screaming when you hug them until they're almost dead, but rather just walk away smiling.
regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed this.

This was very funny and cute. Only suggestion is that the meter on top pauses when you open the shop.

It's good but... I wish it would pause when you are at the shop because I have drowned in depression ( what I imagine dying is in the weird logic of this game) many a time while I am trying to see what to buy. I also cannot seem to win because I get to this part where everyone runs away from me and I cant hug anybody. ( and bears are scientifically proven to be faster than humans btw). It's still a good time waster though if you are bored.

Loved the graphics and concept of the game, the medals are good too. Would love a sequel.
