What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Hi Everyone!

Rescue Bear has had amazing success over the past several years. (Zero promotions!) However; our community has nearly grown now to 30K users! That's incredible! As a result... now in 2021 - We're adding mobile platform support. We will continue to support the PC/Steam; but please do also look for your favorite game (Rescue Bear!) on iOS & Android! Coming soon! Stay tuned for our Kickstarter & other crowd-funding opptys. We could NOT do this without YOU!

Thank you - so much!!!!!

From my original post back in 2016:

We believe that we're at a stage in the games development cycle to reach out to our most important users - the players - you. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this game, and our objective that will ultimately lead to users having both fun; and being able to make a positive difference. We value your feedback & inputs!

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Once we complete some additional crowd-funding - we will officially launch the game, with some new, & exciting levels! (posted Oct 2021)”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Ideally we'd love to expand the core game play, & add a few features & levels over time. This however; will be very dependent on how the game is received & what the feedback looks like.

Here's a short version of some of our wish-list items:
1) We'd love to add touch functionality.
2) Expand & port the game to Mac OSX
3) Add a few additional levels.
4) Add a few more animations, & actions (e.g. digging the fire line).
5) Add a few more critters, & or tools & vehicles that assist in core game-play.
6) Tbd. We'd like to keep our minds open to our players' feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?


Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“TBD. The game will have both a free to play aspect, & a graduated pricing model based on inputs we receive between now & public release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Steam Forums. The Rescue Bear Operation Facebook page. Email. The Thought Ops (Rescue Bear) website page.”

Rescue Bear Operation Kickstarter

Stay tuned for the Rescue Bear Kickstarter effort. While the game, game-play, & mechanics are largely completed; it is our hope that we can expand 1) awareness, 2) add a few features, & 3) expand to a few other platforms to reach a wider audience! *Note: As of Q4 2021 - we will be supporting iOS, & Android. Please follow us on Social Media to learn more.

About This Game

Want to save some animals, and their habitats!?

Rescue Bear Operation is: an introductory, 1-level, all ages, child friendly, free to play, mini game designed to create awareness around saving animals, & their habitats! We are a thought leader in Environmental Sustainability issues. We'll be donating at least 30% of our net proceeds to charitable causes.

Rescue Bear is intentionally kept simple and accessible. There are two objectives. One: save as many friendly critters as you can! Two: save as many trees by putting out the wild fires! By doing this you will accumulate points that can be used as in-game currency to purchase unique cosmetic items in game. (E.g. hats, shirts, etc) Or; if you want to help good causes in giving back to 'trusted' real world charities and organizations dedicated towards issues of climate change (e.g wildfires, flooding, etc) we also offer unique downloadable content (DLC) that can be purchased with real world currency as well.

Together - we *will* make a difference!

Most of all, please have fun playing the game!

Thank you!
