In June of 2010, 505 Games and developer Behaviour broke my tiny plush heart. Naughty Bear was to be everything I'd ever wanted in fluff-soaked teddy bear gore. Instead, it was simplistic, unattractive and unsatisfying. I wanted Dexter. They gave me Texas Chain Saw Massacre Lite. Can the downloadable Naughty Bear:…
When the bears of Perfect Island neglect to invite Naughty Bear to their island resort vacation, amazing advertising ensues. Oh, and a new Naughty Bear game coming to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network this fall. But man, that advertising.
A2M's Naughty Bear, a video game about a deranged child's toy with murder in its heart, wasn't the blockbuster success I hoped it would be. Perhaps the concept just needed to be powered by a familiar face. After that it's all Child's Play.
Wet developers Behaviour used to be known as Artificial Mind & Movement. Then they shortened that to A2M (which has an alternate, rather NSFW meaning). And that's why they're now known as Behaviour.
The head of the 375-person development studio Artificial Mind and Movement realized his company had a bad name. So, today, they've changed it, and revealed two sequels in the process:
Artificial Mind and Movement's murderous mascot goes mobile, as Naughty Bear hacks and slashes his way into the iTunes App Store.
Pirates lay siege to the Island of Perfection in the upcoming Chapter 9 downloadable content for 505 Games' killer plushie simulator Naughty Bear. And so the circle is complete.
Apparently the quality control on Red Dead Redemption was so bad that lesser-quality games have begun bleeding into it.
Who could possibly want to hurt something as glorious as a cross between a unicorn and a plush teddy bear? Oh yeah, that guy.
Not only does 505 Games' upcoming killer bear game have multiplayer, it has game modes that actually promote strategic thinking and cooperation. Who knew?
The blood-curdling screams of teddies caught in the Jaws of Naughty Bear only make him shake harder.
You'd figure any bear living in the woods would constantly be on the lookout for bear traps.
I suppose it was inevitable.
In the second installment of The Book of Naughty, our favorite vengeful stuffed animal killer makes his victim a cake as fast as he can.
After months of teaser trailers and bizarre dream sequences, we finally get a chance to see Naughty Bear practicing his murderous ways. It's like Friday the 13th, only with teddy bears.
Rather than tiptoe around our nightmares, the fine folks at Artificial Mind and Movement have decided to just tear through our darkest childhood fears like so much tissue paper with their latest Naughty Bear video vignette.
My opinion of Naughty Bear just went up several notches.
Naughty Bear's true colors come Shining through in the box art for Artificial Mind & Movement's teddy bear murder simulator.
If this clip of Naughty Bear relentlessly pursuing his whimpering prey with a shotgun featured humans instead of stuffed animals there would almost certainly be some sort of public outcry.
