Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a super tight masocore platformer, but every time you die your corpse stays behind – making the game easier. As your bodies pile up, you can use them as carpets, meatshields and paperweights, though if you’re good enough you never have to die at all.

Rude Bear is a gangster bear from East London who’s summoned back in time to medieval England by his mortal nemesis, The Wizard, and forced to overcome challenges that are so lethal he’ll (probably) need to be resurrected hundreds of times to stand any chance of getting out.

The Rude Bear universe takes place in a fantasy British grime world, with grafitti skylines and a grime soundtrack produced by Deeco.

It’s been exhibited at Tokyo Game Show, PAX East, EGX, EGX Rezzed, GDC, GameCity 9, Insomnia51/52/53/54, Radius Festival, Indievelopment, Feral Vector, CultureTECH and Update.

We plan to release in Europe, Japan and America.

We’re coming to Steam, Xbox One, PS4 and PS Vita.
