A JOURNEY INTRO THE RETROVERSE

It’s a typical freezing wintery day. A group of hungry papa bears wander into a cave to get away from their mama bears for the night. It’s a lavish cave. Huge. There’s lots of cozy corners to rub up on and it even comes with infinite honey!

Unfortunately, an ice storm blocks up the entrance and traps the bears inside. They decide to wander deeper into the cave to hunt for another possible exit.

As they venture into the deep they see a soft pink light coming from the distance. Everyone erupts in excitement but one hesitates. “I don’t know you guys, something feels weird.”

“Stop being such a square and come on” Pushin’ Bears replies.

The hesitant bear bows his head in shame as the others begin to run full force towards the light. By the time he looks up, it’s too late. Everyone has disappeared!

Meanwhile, all the other bears enter a wormhole that will change their lives forever. They start ageing backwards, their hairstyles change, new clothes zap onto their bodies and PLOP, PLOP, PLOP, PLOP–they land in a giant pile on the pavement of the Retroverse.

The Retroverse. A not so distant land both futuristic and vintage. Filled with endless entertainment, music, food, fashion, and a strange radioactive honey.

The bears unanimously decide to stay forever and name themselves after their one lost friend, Square Bears.
