I have a certain fondness for Bear With Me. It was the first game i got a review code for with out having to namedrop my best friend IndieGamerChick, plus it was the first game a developer reached out to me for coverage for. And…well, it was freaking adorable. On top of that, it was also a really well written and fun little point and click. This was the first game that proved i was heading in the right direction with this whole “game journalism” thing and unlike a lot of people i know, i got to enjoy the game that proved that to me.
So, naturally i’m excited to see what it’s all been building up to. What happened to Amber’s brother? Who is the Man in Red? Why is he burning Paper City down? I want answers, god damn it! And on October 5th, i’ll get them.
In my reviews for the first two episodes I’ve made a point of noting that i don’t think this game works too well as an episodic adventure. Each episode continued the overarching narrative, but didn’t really offer unique stories of their own. Meaning each episode felt like it ended as soon as it was getting good. If the team at Exordium Games can stick the landing, this final episode should make that a non-issue as it will be possible to get some closure without having to wait for months on end.
So yeah, i’m stoked. I highly recommend the first two episodes, and am as excited for this last chapter as i possibly can be.
