'Bubsy: Paws on Fire!' (ALL) Coming This April, Kickstarter For More Content - Trailer

The world’s furriest egomaniac is back in an all new platformer/runner with more thrills, more friends, and more excitement.

Choice Provisions is  partnering with Accolade to release Bubsy: Paws on Fire!, an auto-runner featuring nobody’s favorite mascot!

Bubsy is back in his greatest adventure yet! Featuring four playable characters with their own unique playstyles, new moves never before seen in a Bubsy title, and over 100 levels, Paws on Fire is a game for Bubsy lovers and haters alike!

When I told my agent I wanted my next game to be my best yet, he reminded me I was no longer his client and had his number changed. Luckily the suc-... er, developers at Choice Provisions still agreed to partner up with me. It’s amazing what a couple of sharpened claws can get you in this world!

After some productive meetings and even more productive face scratches we agreed to work with Bubsy on creating an auto-runner worthy of his stature. And when that was done we scrapped it and made a good game instead.

Accolade will launch a Kickstarter campaign for Bubsy: Paws on Fire! today, February 5th, 2019, at 10:00am PDT, and is centered around DLC for the game.

Backers will be rewarded with game codes, an OST, a limited edition physical PS4 version of the game, and the aforementioned DLC. They may also receive emails from Bubsy himself, though for some reason they always end up in the spam folder.

The Kickstarter goal is set at $25,000, with several stretch goals set to unlock more DLC content for the game. This includes a secret, mysterious playable character you’ll never be able to guess within a few seconds of thinking about the main character of most of Choice Provisions’ games! 

A Word from our Bobcat...

A Kickstarter, huh? Say, aren’t those a ton of work?! Well, if it means people have the chance for more me, who am I to say no? I would move mountains if it meant all you wonderful people could get a little more Bubsy in your lives! Heck, I’d even scale the mountains after I finished moving them! Anything for my adoring fans.

Fortunately, the kind folks at Accolade have agreed to run the campaign for me. You’re safe for now, mountains...

Paws on Fire! marks Choice Provisions’ first foray into the highly competitive world of bobcat-based video games. It’s also set to be Bubsy’s biggest adventure yet, with features such as:

  • Four playable characters, each with their own unique mechanics! Fly and shoot your way through the air as The Woolie, take it underground with Arnold’s bonus levels, or run your way to victory with Bubsy and Virgil Reality
  • An all-new story featuring the unlikely alliance between Bubsy and his archrivals, The Woolies!
  • Over 100 levels set across three different worlds!
  • Three boss battles!
  • A unique combo system and set of leaderboards for every character!
  • A shop with costumes and cosmetics, all of which players can unlock just by playing the game. There are no in-game purchases!
  • Unique character dialog for every level!
  • A variety of collectible types, ensuring maximum replayability!
  • The return of Oinker, Terri, Terry, and many other characters from previous Bubsy incarnations! We’ve even included Virgil Reality from the Bubsy pilot--we dug deep!

Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC in April 2019.
