A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Made by Vidar Nelson, Mikael Hällström and Mattias Granat for ludum dare 33

You play a kind but slightly silly monster. You really want to hug everyone you see. The problem is that you are a monster and people tend to run away from you. You need to sneak up on them to be able to hug them. Unfortunately you always hug to hard and crush them. You get really sad for a moment, until you spot another human to hug.

How to beat the game: Hug all humans to death!

--- Important ---
Once you grab a human, keep the hug button pressed to crush them.

We had a great time making Hugs and it will be very interesting to hear what you guys think of it.

Special thanks to our friend Markus Kothe for creating the music and ambient sounds <3

I like the objective of the game and the description of the game was pretty funny which made me check this out XD

Maybe different songs for different levels, Power ups to hug 2 or 3 at a time(Only cause he's a monster)XD.
