A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A shy artist has fallen in love with a stranger. And now that stranger has invited him over. Can dreams come true? 🌈

Features:

  • Cute gays
  • Delicious food
  • Meaningless choices
  • So many emotions

This is the SEQUEL to my first visual novel, Yoga Bear.

Bear Care can be enjoyed without playing Yoga Bear first, but I recommend starting with the first game - it's very short, and completely free!

This project is still in development. The Android-friendly web release will be done once the full game is completed.

⚠️The game contains mature language, anxiety and occasional loud noises.

great game, just played both, and i hope the protagonist(sorry i don´t remenber his name) gets a reality check and grows from it. he needs it

(+1)

i kinda feel bad for the both of them, and with how the end goes, i can't do anything else but expect the worst ;-;

i can't wait for the next update if there'll be any, i really like the artstyle and the atmosphere of the game !

Can you make an android version pleasee😭💅

Hi! I’m planning to add mobile support, but I want to finish the next (and final) update first. I have to travel a lot so I haven’t been able to spend much time on making games.

Could I make an edition with Chinese language patch to Bear Care?I wanna share the lovely story  with furrys in China.If you agree and want to talk about it,may I have your any social media account or contact details?Or I can just make one attached with author and original address of the game when I share the game

Thank you for your kind words! You are welcome to make a fan translation of Bear Care as long as you credit me as the original author. ^^

(+1)

Thank you for your permission!!

The content of Yoga Bear really actractsed me.And I enjoyed the interesting content of Bear Care too!Thank you for making the visual novels we love!

(+1)

I'm so happy you continued this story as I loved Yoga Bear, and became so invested into characters along with the story. I really enjoyed this game too. I can't wait to see where it goes next. The art is beautiful as ever! Fantastic job!

(+1)

Hi! Thank you so much for playing! I'm really happy you're enjoying the sequel, too! ^^  

(+3)

This is the best visual novel I've ever seen, and the ending shocked the hell out of me. as soon as i saw the "to be continued" i was almost about to cry because of that last frame.

This is just beautiful if had to rate this 1-10. I would give this 100/10.

btw Take your time this is art at its finest. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this! keep up the good work! (^v^) 

Thank you!! That's such high praise! <3

(+1)

this is really really special to me...so glad i found this. i'm astounded at how well done this series is. so much talent showcased here, you should be very proud <3

Aa, thank you again! ^^ I'm so happy you enjoyed the sequel, too! <3

(+2)

wow this is such a great story and I have never seen a visual novel that played with my emotions this much it's just amazing

Thank you so much!

(+3)

I just had my heart crushed by the last frame.

on another note, the mc is waaaay delusional. The bear did say he was up for fun and not for any comitment sort of things

(+1)

He'll be a lot less delusional once I finish the next update! ;3

(+1)

well its goes without saying i guess. Still, damn that was rough. 

I guess echo wasn't enough. this one really felt like icy needles stabing my spine

(+1)

Ouch! The first was a really nice meet-cute but dang, this hurt. I've been on both ends of similar kinds of feelings and wow. That's rough. Looking forward to seeing how things pan out for him!

(+1)

Thank you! I've certainly been both Bear and Deer in a situation like this myself. ^^'

Hey, may I ask for an Android build, so I can play too? ^^

(1 edit) (+1)

Hi! Mobile support is in the plans, but won't be available for a while, sorry about that! PC and Mac builds can be created with the press of one button,
but mobile support requires extra steps.
I will also try to optimize the build a little better for mobile, so this will take additional time. 

(1 edit)

Thank you for the reply, I wouldn't mind playing on PC, the problem are my parents, even if I'm 22, I prefer to read alone. ^^ If you creating your vn with Ren'py, then maybe I can give you a helping hand about how to make an android build, because I was struggling with it a lot. :s (Luckily, I got proper help in other dc servers)

Though I can't guarantee, because everybody's pc is different, for an example mine is in a horrible condition, so I spent days to figure it out what stuff I need to have, like java or dunno. :D So for 1 word's end with 100, android build is a tricky one, but once you figured it out, it will be easy next time.

So if you need help with it, just ask for my discord, maybe I will be useful for once in my life.

Hi again! It's more of a time & energy issue than a knowledge issue.

When it comes to Bear Care, my number one priority is finishing the story. The VN was originally intended to be playable in a single session. I only released the incomplete demo because I ran into the jam deadline. I think you will have a much nicer time playing the completed version. ^^

(+1)

Yeah, that's kinda right. :D Thanks for the reply. :D

(+1)

Someone hasn't toyed with my emotions like this since my ex! Nice work!

Thank you! It's about to get even more emotional! ^^

(1 edit) (+1)

Yaaaay ! a new update ! I just read the rest of it  and i can't wait for more ! It feels nice seeing the bear smile again :)

Aww, thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it!

(+1)

It's really cool, I love the story UwU

(+1)

Thank you so much!

Android ver?

I'm currently focusing my energy on finishing the game. I'll work on an Android-compatible version after the full game is complete. :) 

Wait, so you mean like, no more updates full? Ending story full? 

Yeah, I will complete the desktop version 100% first.  :) It's a lot of work to make a video game on your own, so I'm trying to keep things as simple as possible. This isn't a very long story, though, so hopefully it should all be playable on both desktop and mobile before summer. 

(+1)

duude this final, i must say it caused fellings, not spoiling thoo

The feelings have just begun. :3

(+1)

very very cute. I have to say the main character reflects many stereotypes of guys a bit anxious that sometimes go too fast with their minds and they generally are puppies to take care of. the idea is good and I guess there is behind the personal experience, the fact that he draws and you too, as for the phone... see if he answers.. every two minutes, I imagine you check our comments to see if it liked, for many people this is considered anxiety.. for me it is also a search for confirmations, having a sensitive soul and much more. I like it... a very personal work.. You’re exposing yourself, I think, and I fucking love it. You got balls! you have all my respect continues so

"every two minutes, I imagine you check our comments to see if it liked"

(thanks for the comment for real though!! <3)

(+1)

oh I hope you didn’t take it wrong, I think you check the comments etc. It’s just that you’re putting so much into this project and it makes me see you as more altruistic and sensitive, nothing more than nothing less <3

Oh, no worries! I was just joking around since I happened to be checking itchio just when you posted and it was a funny coincidence. ;D Thank you for the kind words!!

Update soon?

Yes, now! ;D

(+1)

This is so good! Can't wait for another update

Thank you!

it would be better if you show how mc and bear interact in first person perspective rather than mc recalling it (*^_^*)

Don't worry! You get to interact with the bear in first person before the story is over!

Makeup runs are the best runs.
We are looking forward to the update :D

Great Job. Keep it up. Proud of you ~

There won't be any explicit content. I intend to keep the game safe for streaming :)

(+3)

even so this game is very cute



so wait they went from strangers to boyfriends? (i played the sequel but it just stopped at the intercom) so im like confused to what happened

(+1)

The story is told out of chronological order. The flashback that explains what happens between the end of Yoga Bear and start of Bear Care starts when the harp sound plays and the background changes to abstract clouds. The next update will see the entire flashback completed. Hope that clears things up a little!

(+1)

is this going to be a small vn or one of those bigger  vns? :3

It'll be relatively short (around 6000 words) :D

(+1)

when will it launch for Android?
(+1)

I don't have an exact timeline, sorry! I plan to finish the full desktop version first (before January) and then I'll start working on the mobile ports. It will probably take at least a month or so, since the custom user interface doesn't play nice with mobile, and all the assets need to be re-optimized, etc.

That said, it should be done somewhere between November and March.

(+2)

Can't wait to play this masterpiece on my phone :)

(+2)

The sprites are just so damn expressive they're my favorite part of this. Also this poor deer is getting way ahead of himself in ways I think we can all relate to.

(+2)

Thank you! There will be plenty more sprites before this ride is over. :D

(+4)(-1)

Really looking forward to the second part of this gay-panic deer’s morning emotional rollercoaster, so far it’s been a really enjoyable read! Great work!!

(+1)

Ahh, thank you! I didn't originally plan to release the story in two halves, so I was really worried if the first 2000 words (it's over 6000 words in full) would be a satisfying read at all ;'D
