Developer Gummy Cat has today shown off a new development diary, centering around its work on its upcoming hotel-management-except-you’re-a-bear sim, Bear and Breakfast.
Revealed as part of The Escapist’s Fall Indie Showcase, Gummy Cat has shared an insight into the driving force behind the highly-anticipated title.
In the candid video, the developer discusses inspirations, trials, and tribulations – from life in the studio’s home country of Romania, to ecological concerns, to an innate desire to avoid “wasted potential”.

As the business expands, so do the mysteries of the forest, and Hank soon finds himself uncovering a plot deeper than the wilderness itself.
