Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
Underneath all the humour, by the way, there seems to be a message about connecting with people. Okay. It's a grand message. The exploration of the bear's daddy issues is also pretty cool. But I think I'm going to remember this for the humour.

Powerful material, solid writing, held back by pacing and UI decisions, November 14, 2016
by streever (America)
Emotionally powerful writing that lightens the mood with the humorous concept of putting you in the story as an anthropomorphised bear who communicates via gestures.

The story is linear, but the choices feel meaningful and deliver a sense of agency. My only negative feeling towards the work is that the UI forces pauses between sections of text, and prevents you from advancing, which slowed down my sense of pacing and urgency. I suspect the plot plays a part too, as it is predicated on moving back and forth through time in a way that usually works, but sometimes feels like it could use a little more attention.

funny, but not IF, October 30, 2016
by namekuseijin (anywhere but home)
no, it's not interactive when it demands a "page turn" for each new word in the text. text effects don't turn it more interactive either, nor does the parser-like text links

screw you, bear sonny

This game takes place in a single room but not always the same one. The room contains just one item, but again, there's more to it than that. Experiment and enjoy.
