I used to boldly explore about the fields on all furry fours, but then I took an arrow in the knee
For those who enjoy dressing up as furry animals on the weekends and/or for those who just can't quite quench their thirst for
best-selling role playing game
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
," something new and exciting is headed your way.
Portland, Oregon-based indie game development house
describes "Bear Simulator", a fanmade Skyrim mod, writing:
You play in FPB (First Person Bear) and do bear things which include exploring, eating fish and plants, striking down anything that dare stand before your might, increasing your stats, sleeping and discovering mysteries of your forest home.
The developer has
launched a Kickstarter
, which so far has already scored 1,380 backers and made $38,248 USD (at the time of writing this article) -- well north of the $25,000 USD target.
The player's character has seven stats as well, which make up the "RPG" aspect of the game. Perhaps most important is intelligence, which helps keeps you parasite free.
No one (or no bear?) wants to get parasites.
Backers who donated $5 USD get their names on a thank you webpage, but the real bounty starts at $15 USD and up; tiers at which everyone gets a key to the game and an in-game key that will give one lucky player a surprise in a mysterious shed (er... do we want to know?).
Other perks give you unique in-game items:
And many of the higher backer perks also come with the ability to design objects on "Kickstarter Island" or the "Spooky Woods" two of seven new worlds that form Bear Simulator's world.
If you pay enough you even get bear apparel.
For those interested, there's 24 days left in the Kickstarter. And stay tuned; the Farjay Studios says there might be a stretch goal of some sort, although they "aren't planned (yet)". And if you're on the fence, here's a quick video of the gameplay:
And before we forget, remember there is that
Oculus Rift Skyrim mod
, so in theory you could now literally live your fantasies of being a living breathing bear in a digital world. We're not sure if that's a healthy thing, but who are we to judge?
