The story begins in the summer of 2013. We spent our lunch break discussing how so few mobile games is utilizing the incredible touch screens we have nowadays. Many games is just about tapping and many even resort to on-screen gamepads as this is the easiest kind of input to imagine for those of us who grew up with game consoles. This led us to indulging in brainstorming sessions of how we could make a game, using intuitive touch gestures that actually had an in-game analogy.

The idea of Rafting Bears was born. As the title might reveal, this is a game about river rafting. The player control a set of paddling bears floating down river on a raft, fighting the current and hazardous obstacles. Swiping on either side of the screen will cause the bears sitting on that side of the raft to paddle. This gives the player a great degree of freedom since both sides can be controlled independently and the bears can paddle both forward and backwards.

The game in its current form is made up of 5 rivers, each with 20 levels. Completing a level unlocks the next and 1 to 3 honey jars can be earned depending on time used. Fish that is caught in the river can be spent on new and better rafts and equipment.

Crondale is a 3 man team located in Norway. From day to day we work on different software projects, but during the dark winter nights, we put on our cloaks and masks and develop games as "Crondale Games". We are proud to announce Rafting Bears and hope you will enjoy the game. We definitely enjoyed making it!

>> Released on Google Play now!

The game will be released for iOS on App Store as soon as it has gone through the review process.

We are going to begin marketing the game very soon, but would love some early feedback from the Community.
