Bernie Needs Love is, in essence, a simple and lighthearted platformer in which the player must guide Bernie, a nice but anguished old man chased by death, towards his girlfriend — while avoiding the many hazards of a poorly maintained yet beautiful city and collecting blue 'love-enhancing' pills to make it an extra-special night!

In a time of eye candy and accessibility over gameplay and personality, Bernie Needs Love truly stands out from the crowd with its charming retro graphics, lovingly composed chiptune music, and hardcore difficulty level — which are sure to satisfy players who grew up in the 8-bit era.

Well, it looks like launching the game from the Desura client should work fine now. Thanks, Desura staff!

If the game fails to launch, please try reinstalling, and please let us know if any issue comes up.

Have fun!

Hi friends!

The good news is that the update to version 0.805 is online! Widescreen and all!

The bad news is that there's been some executable naming errors and, thus, both the Windows and Linux Desura clients fail to open the game when it's launched. We are already talking to Desura staff in order to fix this, but, for now, there are three ways to circumvent this problem:

- you can rename the executable accordingly to the warning message;

- you can simply double-click the file itself;

- you can play the standalone builds, which are also updated.

We expect this error to be fixed very soon.

Thank you all for the support and have fun!

You might want to think about providing a 64bit version. I have been installing libraries to get the 32bit version to work for over half an hour now lol

Hi paperjon,

We're very sorry for the trouble and also very glad you told us about it: our Linux test machine is 32bit, so thank you for the important feedback!

The next update — which should be available in a week or so — will be 100% focused on bug-fixes and new features, and we'll be sure to do add a 64bit Linux build along with the 32bit version. Just for the sake of completeness, would you mind sharing with us the OS you're running?

That said, we truly hope this unexpected library-installation session does not detract from the game experience.

Once more, thank you for informing us about this and be assured we'll do our best to fix this issue on the next update.

Until then, have fun, take care, and please let us know is any other issue comes up!

Hi,
Thanks for the reply,
Its not your fault, I am running Arch Linux but am almost certain every 64bit Linux distro will have some of the 32bit libraries needed.

I look forward to the update and the 64bit version,

Thanks again for a great game.

Jon

This is a really cool boss fight. I've been stuck on it for almost two hours and I still feel like I'm refining my strategy and improving my timing rather than just banging my head into a wall. Good stuff.

I finally got the [SPOILER] to [SPOILER] all of the [SPOILERS] and... wow, I guess there's a Phase Two? Then I got scythed in the face. Back to this later.

Hi there!

Thank you very much for the kind comment! We've put a lot of effort in this boss fight and it's a great joy for us to know you are enjoying it!

This week, we'll probably publish another update with a couple of bug fixes so that we can start implementing stages 2-1 to 2-10.

Until then, take care and, once more, thank you very much for the kind support — now go show that Reaper who's the boss! ;)

That's great news, my friend!

Thank you very much for the support and for the uplifting compliments! It made our day!

As for Avast, there might be a way to add the game to a safe list so that you can leave it running, keeping your system protected. Usually, these programs keep some sort of log of blocked executables, so that might help setting it up.

Once more, thank you very much for the kind support and have fun!
