Bernie Needs Love

Go Bernie! Your girlfriend is waiting and death is nigh!

Developer's Description

Bernie Needs Love is, in essence, a simple and lighthearted platformer in which the player must guide Bernie, a nice but anguished old man chased by death, towards his girlfriend — while avoiding the many hazards of a poorly maintained yet beautiful city and collecting blue 'love-enhancing' pills to make it an extra-special night.

In a time of eye candy and accessibility over gameplay and personality, Bernie Needs Love truly stands out from the crowd with its charming retro graphics, lovingly composed chiptune music, and hardcore difficulty level — which are sure to satisfy players who grew up in the 8-bit era!

We are currently adding features and designing more levels, and we expect to release the full game around March/April 2013 with 30 challenging stages. For now, if you buy the Windows version, you get a 50% discount off the full price, immediate access to the current beta (which is bug-free, as far as we know), and frequent updates with new levels as we add them along the way.
