What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose to release BearHammer as Early Access because we want to be clear in the commitment that we will be improving this title for months and years to come.

BearHammer has been a long development with over a year and 9 months committed and we are extremely proud of the gameplay we have created, we truly think it's one of the best VR combat experiences out there in terms of variety of challenging monsters.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 6 months to a year.”

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

Multiplayer Support

Co-Op Gameplay

We plan on adding co-op multiplayer so you can battle through the world of Bearonia with one additional friend. Current plans are for 2 players and slightly increased difficulty when playing with another player.

PVP Domination Gameplay

We also plan on adding a 4-player FFA domination experience. In this experience players will battle each other to maintain control over three control points while attempting to disable other players with their hammers.

Throughout the map we will also spawn special power zones where players can travel to gather NPC enemies from the single player game. Players will be able to store these captured enemies in special spheres on their belt and throw them at other players, summoning powerful monsters to attack other players.

Additional Maps and Modes


Finally we plan to add more single player content. We will create new maps, enemies, and weapons.

We plan on implementing an endless mode with a leaderboard to challenge our most skilled players.

We also plan on implementing a special mode we call "Toad Run Derby" which challenges you to smash toads as far as possible!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state is very playable and supports 20 waves of single player combat, three different weapons with unique play styles, and multiple areas to explore full of interesting interactibles, including a mushroom drum set, a physics enabled tetherball pole, and more.

The gameplay is very bug free and also finely tuned with flat map design to avoid nausea.

We have exhibited it at gaming conferences such as the Canadian Game Expo in Ottawa and received lots of positive feedback on the game, which gives us the confidence to make our first release.”

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

“We may possibly raise the price when we add the multiplayer feature and leave early access.”

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

“We are very curious to hear new ideas for enemies to add and especially to have early feedback on our multiplayer designs.

Players can leave feedback or ideas either on our discord channel or our steam community page and we will respond to that gladly!

We would also love to hear ideas for new creative weapons, new worlds, or new challenges you think could add to the gameplay we've created.

About This Game

BearHammer will make you feel strong, like BEAR. In BearHammer you can absolutely smash enemies with giant hammers, sending them flying throughout Bearonia with powerful ragdoll physics. You can also THROW these hammers and return them, simply by holding the trigger.



BearHammer is an action RPG arcade game, a unique mix between a wave based arcade game and a story-based RPG.

For fans of quick action & difficult challenges, there are 20 waves featuring different varieties of monsters and different objectives, ranging from taking down powerful bosses, surviving onslaughts of enemies with unique attacks, to defending the village of Bearonia itself. We hope this arcade style gameplay appeals to people looking for quick satisfying and especially challenging gameplay, making it a fun game to show off to friends.



For fans of story, immersion, and exploration, BearHammer features the beautiful island of Bearonia to explore with a variety of new weapons to unlock and special challenges hidden around the island. You'll get the opportunity to ride a bear, fly on a dragon, use a mushroom drum set, and discover some of the hidden story elements behind the Toad King's invasion.

You are tasked with defending Bearonia and its inhabitants of bears, turtles, and rabbits from the invasion of the evil armies of the Toad King, who summons evil StabRats, Crabbos, Dragon Beasts, Battle Toads, and more to spread his Power of the Frossst.

This isn't another wave based game where you don't move and everything just comes at you--to win at BearHammer you must plan your attack and move throughout the level to stop different boss monsters and close portals from spawning more enemies.

The game features teleport controls and free motion controls, which have given very few players dizziness due to the game's level design that features mostly flat ground and far views of the horizon.

In the coming months, we plan to add online multiplayer to the game, to support both co-op modes and a 4-player domination mode where you'll have the ability to summon monsters to attack your opponents in addition to swinging the game's namesake BearHammers. Further out on our road map, we'll also be adding additional maps and single player challenges.
