Hi, first of all watch the people from Penny Arcade play this bear game:
It was funny seeing them trying to figure out things and what's going on. Like their comic so it's as exciting as when the Game Grumps played this bear game. Wasn't sure if they liked it or not though.
Anyways, still working on the campground dlc. Here's some behind the scenes stuff in the mean time:
Arni Forest went through a ton of revisions, it had a vacation house where you would have found a kitchen (with food), some storyline stuff (the humans there left behind some messages) and a bird animal buddy (which eventually became DJ Raven):
(The pink color means the texture is missing)
There was also a hedge maze that was cut too:
Originally Bear Points were used as a gating system. At first you'd need a specific amount of bear points to travel to new regions. There would be “Barriers” blocking you from certain regions, kind of like “Note Doors” in Banjo Kazooie:
Things got shifted around a bunch and intelligence blocked food was used as a barrier system so you couldn't just travel around without building your stats up first. Bear points were originally used instead of Intelligence for food gating.
Intelligence had a different role, it was used to interact with the environment more. For example there was locked doors you couldn't open and books you'd need to read to gain new abilities and items like so:
You'd need to read a book and collect items to make a cat bed instead of just finding it. Plus there were other books for things.
That mystery shed went through a bunch of revisions. The main, original plan was it contained another key (inception sound here):
This would have given you special access to Kickstarter Island which was planned to be an exclusive region. Changed this when people messaged wanting their friends and favorite Youtube people to see their island submissions without needing the secret code. Plus wasn't sure if it should have been an exclusive thing or not or what people were expecting, didn't know how to go about it really, kept overthinking it.
Next idea was to have a switch that would spawn frogs everywhere in Arni Forest:
You would have to kill them all and be rewarded with something.
Was reading this comic called Hunter x Hunter but it went on hiatus just when it was getting good. Maybe when I finish the campground dlc thing it will come back just like it came back when finishing this bear game. (?!?!)
Will probably be updating some of the terrible animal models for the campground update (like the pig). But the ducks will keep their terrible models, grown fond of them.
You should watch this show called the Carbonaro Effect, it's pretty entertaining. It's not on Netflix though:
Also have been playing Pokemon Go.
Ok so the campground update will feature a strange Russian guitar called a Balalaika.
Why? Because of this guy. He liked this bear game and had his fans send nice emails which was nice so put this balalaika in game as a thank you. It was a popular request among his fans, had no idea what it was though at the time.
You may be able to collect this and play it in your den.
Also added some other things for other youtube people:
It's the Game Grumps and Markipiler
Also want to add something for this guy too, he had a fun playthrough:
Not sure what though.
