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.

Well the game works, which is good I guess, but it isn't really fun as much as it is grindtasticly monotonous. The character works sort of like a vampire, by which I mean he feeds of people (but not to much because that kills them), and not because he sparkles in sunlight. I didn't actually realize what I was supposed to have done until I read the description later. I bought all the upgrades (which I thought was the objective of the game, seeing as how they basicly made it more difficult at times) before leaving the forest. The best tactic it seems was to simply scare people away once you hugged them, in order to avoid accidently hugging them again.

It all works I guess, but you made on fatale flaw when making this game, besides making it kind of boring, THAT MOTHERF*CKING MUSIC! It just keeps going, the 7 seconds horrible music loop. I could feel my eardrums trying escape, but they couldn't because I was wearing headphones, which I in the ned threw off, but the music kept playing in my mind. It still haunts me. And you can't even mute it, I know you made this in a limited timespan and all, but being able to actually think would be nice, instead I feel like a mindless slave, hugging away for my masters torturing me with terrible music.

this make a great indie game. I spend like 10 mins on it and realize that it won't get me anywhere even if I play it for hour, lol. Great game.
