Bear Simulator Hits Its Kickstarter Target In A Week

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.


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
