We wanted to show you a brief sneak peek of our new AI opponent select screen. Still in development but beginning to take shape - we've now got four different AI "personalities" you can play against (two shown in this video), along with two difficulty settings for each.
- Tried the alpha copy of the game (.apk from your site). Works great... on Nexus 5 (4.2.2). Am a fan of the art style. One very minor issue though- a row of pixels seems to remain lit at the bottom of the screen. This possibly disappears when the green health bar appears later on- it's hard to tell. Good luck with the kickstarter!
Hi everyone! Progress on the game is going quite well - the single player and local multiplayer are pretty much done, and we're now building things like a tutorial mode and nicer menus.
To keep you happy until we have a playable demo, here's a sneak peek of some of the game's music, from our very own William Watson.
Please do give this a share if you like it! Cheers.
HELLO. Long time no see.
We've been working away at something for a few months now, but didn't want to say anything too early. However, we're now super duper excited to announce FEUD, a game we're making in collaboration with soon-to-be-legendary board game designer Dave Cordell! We made a trailer! You can watch it! Exclamation mark!
Feud is a turn-based strategy game coming to iOS and Android. It's going to be free, as well. Ain't we good to you? There'll be single-player, a...s well as local and online multiplayer, with an optional story mode coming a bit later on. We're going to be doing some playtesting really soon, so if you'd like to be involved with that, give us a like on Facebook and keep an ear out!
For now, if you could share this about, that'd be super neat. We're really excited. We think it's going to be really fun.
Hello, everyone! Sorry we've been so quiet for so long.
We're working on something quite cool at the minute, and as a consequence we're looking for a few more Bears to join the team. Yeah, that's right - we're hiring!
We're looking for people who love games, love making things with other people, and are just really damn cool. If you have expertise particularly in any of the following areas and would like to get involved, please shoot us a message, either here on the page or a...t email@example.com!
- *Digital graphics generally, but especially pixel art.* (Animation is a big plus too.)
- Web app development in Django, Angular.js or similar.
- Backend development in frameworks like Node.js.
We're not looking for massive amounts of experience - just talent and a drive to create. If this isn't for you, you could help us out by sharing this post!
Love and Bear Hugs,

Here's our post-mortem on Joel's blog for the Kickstarter - what we've learned, and what we're going to change as we move forward with Uplift.
Hello bear cubs!
Unfortunately, we didn't hit our total with the Kickstarter project. However, we still managed to reach £961 with 77 backers - something we're actually really proud of. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who pledged, shared or just generally thought our idea was cool - it's been really encouraging.
We've learned an awful lot from this, so look out for a big post-mortem blog write up in the coming days.
Uplift isn't going away! We're going to restructure a ...bit, and then carry on as we were. Hope you're as excited as we are.
BIG BIG BEAR HUGS
Joel, Matthew and Wiwa
Hey everyone! We've only got eight days left to go on the Kickstarter. We've got 62 backers so far - HUGE thanks to everyone who has pledged so far. However, we've still got a pretty long way to go, so please please pledge or share or both!

We at Bearwaves have decided that the games industry is just too difficult. We're sorry to all our fans who were waiting quite anxiously for Uplift, but we think it's for the best - we have made the decision to transfer our business into the air travel industry.
We shall henceforth be known as Bearplanes. We look forward to flying with you very soon.
And on Bitpulse! Double RAWWWR.
