The bear cubs don't want to hibernate, they want to stay up and play! But try as they might, they just keep nodding off...

How to Play

  • Delay hibernation as long as you can by waking up sleepy bears!
  • Click on an awake bear to wake up bears around it.
  • Choose a shape to wake up different surrounding bears, using your mouse or keys 1-4.
  • Every turn, some bears will randomly get sleepier.
  • A bear that's asleep will hibernate next turn, and then it can't be woken up at all.

I honestly love how even in such a dark-sounding challenge, you two still make such an adorable mini game.

Played a few games from this challenge and was really excited to see you had entered! The game is really fun, beautifully drawn, and honestly quite the challenge. Never would I imagine that keeping a group of baby bears awake could be so troublesome. Well done!!


It's a really cute game.  

I like the mini goals, but would like more scenarios where I didn't feel like it was hopeless. 

When I end up making a grid where all the bears are awake only to go to *another* grid where most of the bears are gonna sleep and I have to survive, it feels like someone took away all of my progress.  If the grid had a different shape/different background color it wouldn't be so shocking.

great game, very cute :D

Neat game. Cool take on the theme and an interesting puzzle mechanic (cute as heck too).
