A dreamlike tale of a Monkey and a Bear, June 26, 2016

This game follows fairly closely the story of a song called Monkey and Bear, whose lyrics you can look up online.

You play as a dancing bear, muzzled and wearing dancing clothes. Your compatriot monkey helps you escape and run away to the hills.

This is a shuffle comp game, which means it was created in a fairly short time period. However, most of this time seems to have been used to take a short concept and make it very polished, with innovative setting and writing, an XYZZY-nominated NPC, and text effects.

A short game, and an interesting one. I had some trouble guessing commands, but that was my only hangup.
