HRBR

HRBR is a 3D time-travelling action-adventure extravaganza, harking back to the N64 days of tunic-wearing dungeon thwarting.

Rude Bear, having defeated his mortal nemesis, is trapped in a small medieval town, in which he stumbles upon a curious device – an arcane, spinning sundial with a gnomon for a staircase – which allows him to time travel between different eras.

Through history he must peruse the town, affecting the lives of its citizens to aid their troubled descendants. And moreover – in each era he must discover hidden dungeons, unearth mighty artifacts, disentangle perplexing puzzles and conquer formidable foes.
