Bear Simulator Hits Its Kickstarter Target In A Week

What we're saying is this: Bear Simulator is about to become a thing and it will make all your bear dreams come true.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Bear Simulator: a game about simulating the life of a bear. Its creator describes it as a "mini Skyrim but you're a bear". Succinct and to the point. I like that.

We alerted you guys to the game late last week but now, after only seven days, Bear Simulator has already massively exceeded its initial Kickstarter goal of $29,500, a target that was essentially just about raising the funds required to start the studio, despite the fact that the studio is just one man. A man who, I'm presuming, really likes bears.

But who doesn't like bears? A lot of people seem to like bears because they've been paying in their droves to get Bear Simulator made. Now I'm curious. A mini-Skyrim where you play as a bear? That's a hell of an elevator pitch right there. I want to play that game.


    Goat simulator, bear simulator... What's next?

      Goat-bear simulator.

        It's obvious isn't it? Manbearpig!

    First we had Goat Simulator, now this.

    I can't believe 4 people have pledged a thousand dollars or more for this. What's that saying about a fool and his money?

    I should totally make a monkey simulator, where you just go around causing havoc and throw your poo at everyone.

    Shame I don't know anything about coding, oh well.

      I'd buy that for a dollar!!!
      But yes you are correct, what is it with these "Simulators"? It's very probable that 90% will stop playing after the first few hours and never play again.

    when will porn simulator be released

      As soon as they've finished the controller for it.

        The japanese probably already have.

          They did, about a year ago and it was for the Occulus Rift. Although I recall reading that there was a Swedish or Dutch company that came up with the idea first.

            There was one for chicks too... the Rez trance vibrator.

    I think it shows what people want. Never before have we seen so many $100 million dollar games come out and be completely disappointing. Fun is fun no matter what the budget. Personally I cant wait for Goat Simulator, Stomping Land and Bear Simulator.

    I think it helps that he has a sense of humour about the project and himself, as well as the fact that a lot of the base structure is already done and he seems to know how it's going to get the rest done and where the money is going to be spent.

    I'll only buy it if it has the option of mauling hikers.

    A mini-Skyrim where you play as a bear? So it's just a Dovahbear simulator?

    Oh man, that bit where you see the dilapidated bridge... if it actually had this hidden story about the fall of mankind or something (aka Tokyo Jungle) I would be SOLD.
