Wet developers building Naughty Bear

A2M's next project puts PS3, 360 gamers in control of scorned ursine protagonist that will scare the stuffing out of its own kind.

by

The last game from Artificial Mind and Movement, better known as A2M, was Wet, a stylishly violent shooter about a sexy mercenary out for revenge. The developer's next game will be about a teddy bear upset after not being invited to a birthday party.

Naughty Bear will not sell you fabric softener, but he might make you drink it.

505 Games today announced that it will publish A2M's Naughty Bear for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime in 2010. The game follows protagonist Naughty Bear in a quest for vengeance on the bears who snubbed him, encouraging bad behavior as players engage in both conventional and psychological warfare with the other inhabitants of the Island of Perfection.

According to 505 Games, Naughty Bear will use weapons, objects, and scare tactics to unlock rewards. The game will also feature 30 levels, with distinct weaponry for each stage.

A2M has previous experience with cute-yet-combative wildlife, having developed 2008's Kung Fu Panda: Legendary Warriors for the Wii and DS. Other recent projects from the studio include Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, MySims Racing, and the upcoming PSP version of Dante's Inferno.

@Amaurid96- They were making a game like that called "Manhunt 3". It got banned and therefore, they said stopped making the game. So good luck with that idea.

@Amauris96- That could get it an adults only rating. Meaning it will be banned in most countries, and cannot be bought at a gamestop or many stores.

They should make a game like this only the people are humans and it shows everything that happens to a psychopath or an insane person.

Lol, sounds like someones acid trip. Very hilarious and fun premise though. "Both conventional and psychological warefare with the other inhabitants of the Island of Perfection....." I'm in.

The entire idea of this game seems incredibly ridiculous and pointless... which is why I'm interested. Can't wait to see a Panda bear skin.

every time i am reading Naughty Bear i am reffering to Naughty Dog make me confused. i can't expect anything about it, except a Conquer BFD inspiration... because they did not do anything that i liked. and Dante Inferno seem's cool

Seems interesting shame it's not in a toy story type setting sneaking around humans to hunt down enemy toys with lighters etc

A2M has made plenty of terrible games before Wet, and it looks like they're on track to make plenty of terrible ones after.

Please tell me this is a poorly conceived joke...

makes me think of conker as well as razes hell (whole island of perfection/bday). that being said makes me think of fun. way to go a2m. still like to get virtua cop 3 though -.-

i liked Wet's style and soundtrack, but gameplay was mediocre at best (go get Stranglehold for better play mechanics and its cheaper), and it got SUPER repetitive... if they add some better mechanics and some more variety (and no button mashes to open pointless doors!) I will be interested.... Sounds like a fun idea.

I'm going to say this because it hasn't been said yet, but It reminds me of Conker. *Sarcasm* lol :D

Kinda sounds like Conker's BFD, except... only a tiny bit of it.

Cool, I actually liked Wet. I like the sound of a psychopathic teddy bear on a rampage with guns blazing.

Raze's Hell was cool if you want to kill critters that look like teletubbies

@gnfbd Understandable. The creators of Uncharted 2 are Naughty Dog.

Hahaha! This games sound like it could be quite fun. I can't wait to see Naughty Bear chainsaw another teddy and watch it's stuffing spill out all over the floor. Teddicide! I love a bit of bad bearhaviour! :)

yeah, I agree with many of you, this does sound sort of like a Conker's kind of game, which I love; hope to hear more soon

Sounds like an interesting concept. Kind of like Conker, but different.
