was a rather short-lived series of children's games made by Humongous Entertainment
, which was later bought by Atari
. Unlike most other franchises of the company, Fatty Bear lasted one adventure game and two spinoffs (though technically one since the other one was just an Updated Re-release
). His games consisted of Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise
, Fatty Bear's Fun Pack
, and Putt-Putt & Fatty Bear's Activity Pack
. He was also playable in Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon
's minigame Bear Stormin'
(which received a standalone release at one point). After those games, he was reduced to being a simple cameo character for other Humongous games. According to one of the original workers, the person who owned the rights to him had no interest in making any further games. Due to this, he eventually faded into obscurity, but his games, despite there being so few of them, are still well-known by the fanbase.
The only main game in the series, Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise
, centers around the titular character trying to prepare a birthday party for his owner. It goes well until he releases a puppy, who begins to cause trouble for everyone.
