Sortie de la version 0.4

complets, une refonte du tutoriel, deux nouveaux ennemis, trois pouvoirs
combinables, un pouvoir d'invincibilité, des objets à ramasser, plus de
musiques, y compris pendant l'écran titre, une petite introduction de
l'histoire, un nouveau personnage, de nouvelles animations pour Plee et une
nouvelle action : il peut maintenant s'accrocher aux murs. De nombreuses
nouveautés qui, nous l'espérons, amélioreront l'expérience du jouer.... read more

have an easy-to-use system to force an item to follow a path, the collision
detection is more efficient, the friction with the grounds are better handled
and we can apply different frictions to the items in different areas of the
level.... read more

Release 0.2 is out

Three months have passed since the previous release of Plee The Bear. Three
months during which we worked hard to finally arrive to this new version.

The great new thing is the coming of the level editor, named "Bear Factory".
Thanks to it, it will be a real pleasure to create the levels, as soon as we
will have some images and items to put into.

The new version of the game is not exempt of new things. For the visible part,
some new images replace the drafts of the previous version ; and we have a real
title screen :)... read more

his leg in the honey pot... empty! Moreover every single honey pot in the house
is empty. "One more trick of that kid", he thinks. "I'm going to give him such
