Free-to-play virtual pets game lets players of all ages customize and care for cuddly bears
BUNDANG, SOUTH KOREA – April 4, 2012 – LoadComplete, creative mobile and social game developers, today announced the official launch of Bumping Bears, a social virtual pets game for iOS. Previously in Open Beta, Bumping Bears features a variety of fun games and activities for these cuddly creatures and their human Guardians. With over 30 billion(!) combinations of outfits and accessories, there is a unique bear style to match every personality. Bumping Bears is available as a free download with additional purchasable content in the App Store.
In Bumping Bears, players join the colorful and whacky donut galaxy, each taking charge of a customizable donut planet and adopting adorable bear cubs to nurture and raise for a thirty day span. Guardians take their bears to work, feed them, tickle them, photograph them, and send them on location-based adventures. The game no longer requires a Facebook login, so players of all ages can raise their very own virtual bears.
Bears are promoted to jobs with better salaries and greater employee benefits when they increase their skills. As bears improve their salaries, Guardians can use extra cash to purchase additional outfits for their bears and customize their donut planet with items ranging from palm trees to enormous gummy bear statues. And if Guardians and their bears are feeling romantic, they can purchase gifts for friends or use geolocation to find other Bumping Bears players in their area. Meet up with other Guardians so your bears can hang out and play games together. Will your bear be charming enough to impress a potential date?
