Disco Bear was a four month long class project. Under the guidance of professor Richard Lemarchand, Katie Pustolski and Brian Handy aimed to create a brand new type of interactive comedy – or at the least, polish an idea out into a bigger, more fulfilling experience.

Together with the help of Bill Piyatut H, a composer met through a music and cinema school collaboration project, and Eileen Mary O’Connell, a Los Angeles comedian and consultant to the project’s humor, they created Disco Bear. What started as an interactive implementation of Collin’s Bear (the hit Youtube short on a dancing bear) with Katie’s prototype led to the foundation of this experience. Expanded over two months to become an epic following a classic movie arc of the retired and disillusioned professional, Disco Bear was finished in time for the class final and has been surpassing expectations ever since. With no funding, few resources (we spent many hours finding and photoshopping bear photos ourselves) and an intensive but effective schedule, Disco Bear is a proud creation even with its primitive graphics. The fanbase continues to grow in size and enthusiasm every day, much to the surprise of its creators! Disco Bear is now available to play for free at discobeargame.com
