The title gives you all you need to know as it’s pretty much a bear simulator. 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
After waking up on a pile of dirt in a cave, I’ve scrounged around for a bit, eaten two old pizzas and some strange mushrooms, had a couple cold cups of coffee, and broken into a cabin to steal a hat. Next on my agenda: playing Bear Simulator.
Bear Simulator is a bear simulator. It’s a first-person open world game about being a bear and doing bear-related activities like running, hunting, eating, learning power attacks, reading messages left by gophers, and collecting mysterious artifacts to decorate your den. There are no specific quests, as far as I can tell, but I’ve come up with two of my own. First, to kill a duck, which has thus far proved elusive:
My second quest is to get through this entire column without making any bear puns. I leave that to you, oh clever and steadfast commenters. I want to look down at the bottom of this article and see at least fifty bear puns by the end of the day. That is your mission. Do not fail me.
While I haven’t found quests, there are objectives, I suppose. There are several different areas to explore, and in each area there are a number of things the game keeps track of, like how many different food items you’ve found, how many animals you’ve met, and how many hats you’ve collected. If you’re a completionist who likes being a bear, this is probably the game for you. Perhaps the only game. You can also gain experience and level up your skills. You can make your claws deadlier and your sense of smell more keen: every now and then you’ll come across the markings of an animal, but unless your smell skill is high enough you may not know what the animal’s message is.
