Bear & Butcher is a boss rush bullet hell. You play as Bear (Jack), a closeted gay male who is trying to escape a family reunion to meet up with his lesbian friend Butcher (Alexa). The bosses are your homophobic family members, and the bullets are the harmful words that they casually say to you. However, in this bullet hell, and like in most family reunions, you can’t fight back. Instead, you have to have a thick skin and dodge bullets until you’ve run out the clock enough to make a graceful exit.

This game is meant to be completed in one short session.

This game is concerning more on your behalf, the creator. Hopefully everything is alright on your end. Years late, but something...

As for the game, its an alright attempt for a 'bullet hell'.  Unfortunately there isn't much room for dodging, and the letters can be quite random to dodge(making it hell) more than actual skill. The bear icon you control would be better if you could use the mouse, or was smaller to give more chance to dodge the letters. Otherwise interesting concept, and design choice. Thanks for the game~
