Where did that ball go?
I want what dad is eating!
Running away of a machine of immense power that is sucking away the life off of floors.
Help me HIDE from the vet!
How to PROTECT the house from EVIL EVIL MAILMEN?
And MORE

Lot's of zany cute Good boys/girls with problems. UNIQUE PORTRAITS AND TOTALLY NOT A RECOLOR. (okay, I lied about one or two.)

ImageImage
(AND MORE because there's way too many dogs in the picture already and Squeezing in all the dogs would make it hard to see them.)
BUT WAIT HERES MORE:

Evil. Sassy. Cats
(well, they aren't totally evil but let's not pretend they are good. )

Also note: her "hair" is not a dye job but like some colors of Afghan Hounds
have that kind of coloration.

Image

(I'm planing on doing a sequel which will include cat problems, Birds, fish, lizards, rodents AND SNEKS...but only if people are interested.)
Completed:
~Writing- (Got the summary and the first chapter done. Game will be short so I can finish it!)
~Sprite Art---99% (I'm actually done, but there would be times where surprised! I need another expression. so leaving this at 99%)
~Illustrations -
~Background art -
~User Interface 100% (YAY)
~Coding ~20%

Link can be found Right here!
OR
HERES A MIRROR

Questions:


Is the art okay? Is flat coloring okay for this or should I shade this? (I actually never really drew dogs, cats that often....I'm actually usually drawing people.)
Would you play something like this? (it's not a otome or bishojo novel and you don't romance anyone except doggy treats.)
Do you like the characters so far?
What would you like to see from this game?
Any general comments?
The demo is short but is it interesting? Did you like any of the dogs?
It's my fun, silly game, hopefully the comedy isn't cringey.

1. Art is okay. Flat color looks good enough... well, if unsure, try shading, if unsure even after that show it people around and let them decide. But I'm okay with the flat color. it sorta fits.
2. Lol yes. Even if I'm not really the dog person. Though romancing dog treats?..
3. Yuuuup.
4. Honestly? En Dachshund viz terrible terrible German accent for ze love. And hopefully not only phone action. I mean, it's not a bad thing, but well, field operations would be good as well.
5. Nothing really.
6. Demo is good. Needs more dogs, so far Sean and Tarzan would be around "best".

Good luck with further development!

Is the art amazing? No, but it seems fine and even charming for the concept. I guess the cover image/main menu pic is the weakest for me.

Well, I did try to download the demo, so I'm clearly interested, unfortunately the way you classified the "pc" version means the itchio app doesn't let me download it because it's "not available on windows".
Not all stories need to be romance. I like the idea, and the unique perspective of having it come from a dog's view.
Do you like the characters so far?
Sure. They're more fleshed out than I was expecting from a pitch like this.

Can't really comment on anything else until I've played the demo.
(I could download it outside the app, but then I'd never get around to playing it)

:D Haha, Basically that was my thought process as well! I didn't shade them not for lack of talent insert messy colored thingy here (Warning curse words.) I wanted to kinda do flat like tom and jerry or loony toons but I didn't know if people might not like it. Like say sometimes certain styles would turn people off and I wanted to avoid that but if flat is working then it's great for me!

Eh, It's not really romancing haha mostly a one sided love where a dog would stare lovingly at the doggy treat but alas it's on top of the kitchen counter and it's a really beautiful and sad story where the Dog Romeo cannot meet his beautiful and precious Juliet. ISN'T IT SO TRAGIC?!

4= OH MY GOD I DID NOT INCLUDE A WIENER DOG THAT SPEAKS BAD GERMAN I HAVE TO FIX THAT ASAP. THAT IS AMAZING. As a Agent, hmm I have to see if I can use him for something!

5-Sean is one of my favorites. I love writing his interactions with Rex. A dog that speaks in all caps. He's crazy. "WE MUST ELIMINATE THE SQUIRREL THREAT"

Also, I want to ask you if you tried to "send in the hounds" at any point? My sister said that people might abuse that.

OMG I AM SO SORRY! it's my first time using itchio (Literately just made an account so I can upload this game somewhere.) I think I fixed it. I didn't know I had to classify the games. haha. I just uploaded it and thought I was done. When you commented, I JUST NOTICED THAT I COULD CLASSIFY IT. haha

and I also took a precaution of uploading on my drive as a mirror here.

Hopefully, you can play it, now. Thank you so much for telling me! I would have never known about the classifying things.

The storyline is pretty light-hearted and well not too serious.

I finally got around to playing this, and I ended up absolutely loving it!

Everything is bright and cheerful, but most of all, Rex's emoting is soo good. It made him immediately endearing to me - especially his pouty face and his aggressive/engaged face.
Have to confess though, I just solved every situation by sending in the hounds, because it was just too much fun. Owner in bathroom? SEND IN THE HOUNDS! Ball gone? SEND IN THE HOUNDS! :lol:

Also really intrigued by what happened with Rex's father. Conspiracy? Frame-job? :shock:

Gonna play through it again and actually try to answer the calls properly this time..

Keep it up!

Writing is good, there's some mistakes and misspellings that look like they were just not caught in editing, but overall not much to note.

This looks hilarious. Campy comedy games like this are so much fun, especially as a break between playing longer, more serious visual novels. I played qualifiedbadger's "Date a Fidget Spinner" games the other day and I figure I can expect something just as entertaining here. ^_^

also i would totally play a cat sequel after this one is finished
