I love the graphics and the mod you achieved with the snow! Just walking with the scroll parallax feels great. The animation of the dog is very good, and the dash effect is really cool. I also liked the effect of shooting when you bark from behind, feels very powerfull.

At the beggining the snow looked a bit strange for me, but after playing, I think it has a lot of personality and it gives the game an unique style.

The idea of the bottom text  is great, and I think it has potential to tell a good story, I hope you continue with the idea! Congratulations for the game!

PS: Did Insterestellar inspired the song?

PS2: I liked when you barked the human and appears a heart :)

Looking forward to seeing where this goes! 

This is great!  Especially for a first time using PICO-8.  You absolutely nailed the theme, and it is a very fun game, with plenty of strategy and difficulty.  Alas, I did not last long, but will have to play some more to get used to the controls and to build a strategy for myself.  I appreciate the strategy guide in your notes - I should replay with that stuff in mind.  I love the dog walking animation as well, and the mountain bg with snow is great!  Nice work!

This is my first ever game jam, and first time coding for PICO-8 and also my first time coding in LUA!


Thanks for checking it out! And remember, "You are not the hero. You are dog."
