Bearzerkers is the full featured spiritual successor to Pandamonium, or in more detail:
BEARZERKERS is a unique take on the local multiplayer genre, with a focus on indirect combat. What does that mean you say? The goal of the primary mode in BEARZERKERS is to be the last Critter left with the Bear through manipulating the environment around players to their doom. Trap other players with your rock walls and use your powerups at just the right moment on your way to killing the hell out of everyone. Think of it as part Tron Light Cycles, part Nintendo Land and all chaotic multiplayer nonsense.
Holy shit, bears! Anyway, the PC demo is available on its Kickstarter page. Bearzerkers is in the works for PC, Mac and Linux and is expected to release approx. November 2014. Here’s a feature list:
- Up To 4 Player Local Multiplayer! Challenge your friends to be the last alive in various deadly arenas.
- Multiple Game Modes!
-An updated classic mode from the original Pandamonium
-New mode that allows players to take on the hunt as the Bears.

- Modifiers! A plethora of match options and tweaks to vary the game up every round!
- A pounding tribal soundtrack composed by Tommy Gough
