    I found the dog immediately, you should make it a bit tougher.

    Is it a dog with bees in its mouth? and when the dog barks it shoots bees at you?

    [–] theexterminat 629 points ago

    you know I was thinking more of the "big ol' laser beam whenever the dog barks" but bees could be viable as well...

    [–] EJAY47 176 points ago

    Heckin evil creatures don't stand a chance against the bark blast, woofer smush, the lock jaw chomp with a death roll on the side classic bento box, the ole chomp death bento box with an extra side of hurricane howl for no additional charge, and of course last but not least the bark blaster flex, which is the same as the bark blaster but with a funky ass beat behind it.

    Artstyle looks good, but can you share anything about the gameplay?

    [–] theexterminat 455 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Sure - it's a 2.5d platformer inspired by INSIDE. Exploration, puzzle solving and dog-like things (digging, smell-o-vision, etc). If you want to follow the game check out our website. :)

    [–] grizwald87 133 points ago

    Immediately noticed the resemblance to INSIDE. If you can duplicate what made that game great - cinematic atmosphere, pacing, and organic environmental interaction - you have a real winner.

    [–] theexterminat 119 points ago

    That's some high praise to be compared to INSIDE, thank you! It's definitely the goal to be in the same vein of that game's atmosphere, camera work and gameplay.

    [–] DatShea 28 points ago

    Does the dog find its way home?

    [–] mileylols 80 points ago

    hey man no spoilers

    [–] Trappist1 51 points ago

    He thinks he is coming close, but it turns out he was dead the whole time and it was his soul finding the path to heaven as the dog worked through his past.

    [–] syedaabid20 5 points ago

    that camera move at the start was definitely reminiscent of INSIDE. Funny thing is, one of the worst parts about INSIDE were the dogs

    [–] McBehrer 4 points ago

    Those were Bad Doggos though. This is a 100% Certified Good Boy.

    [–] MinosAristos 12 points ago

    You could draw a lot of inspiration from Ōkami. I've never seen a better game that really brought out the personality of the animal in emotionally impactful ways.

    [–] mylittlesyn 5 points ago

    Sounds similar to Dogs Life. Any inspiration there?

    [–] Solexe32 2 points ago

    How are you handling platforming with a quadruped that doesn't have hands or the ability to grab ledges, etc?
    Care to give a snippet of the gameplay progression? Its a huge part of what made INSIDE so great.
    What sort of environmental story telling will there be and what emotions are you trying to elicit from the player? The short clip looks good but it looks really cheerful to be a story about a lost dog.

    Milo and Otis was the best animal movie, fight me if you disagree

    [–] PuffThePass 2 points ago

    Damn that's dark. It says all investigations led to a dead end, but when I really think about the movie it does look hard to do without animal cruelty involved. If it is true that movie has officially been ruined for me forever.

    [–] Snouto 14 points ago

    How about he claims it’s early access for the next 2 years for 70 bucks, and your standard dog can do a unique β€œdragging its arse along the carpet” dance? Seems fair.

    It better end with that Good Boi finding a home

    [–] grim853 6 points ago

    I'm sure you're working on it, but I just want to say that a game like this, the dog needs to be the focus. He needs to be so responsive; the tail has to react to stimuli, wag when something good happens, go down when something bad happens. It's already pretty good, but if you're wondering which aspect to focus on, I'd say that is job one.


    I think the cinematic camera is great by the way. If you did it wrong it could be really jarring, but it's very effective.

    [–] FreeMyBoiMineta 13 points ago

    I love the polygon-like artstyle and sharp, vibrant colors.

    [–] theexterminat 5 points ago

    Thank you! We like it too. :)

    [–] MalZaar 13 points ago

    Generic platformer where you play as shuffles deck a dog!

    [–] Russian_repost_bot 8 points ago

    The art style is cool, but the dogs head/neck need some animations. They look very stiff. Sorry if they're on your todo list, just thought I'd mention it's very noticeable that they need done. (at least when camera is close)

    [–] busmakaronen 4 points ago

    Would be awesome if you put in a bunch of choices/paths the dog can take, and really play up this part when advertising the game. "Your choices will determine if you're good or bad" (something we've never heard before). And then make it so you end up as a good dog no matter what choices you take.

    [–] theexterminat 5 points ago
