One of my favorites from this jam! I loved the art style and humor of this game! I think it would've been fitting if there was a time limit before the owner got back to make it a bit more tense but other than that I really enjoyed it! Also so sorry to hear what happened to your dog.

Developer

One of your favorites! wow, thanks :) Adding a timer to make the game more tense is a good idea. Also thanks for your kind words regarding my dog.

I am the 100th rater! Congratulations! I saw a youtuber play this and thought it looked fun so I gave it a shot. Really simple premise with a control scheme that feels like you have just enough control for it to not be frustrating. Excellent job!

Developer

Thanks for playing and for being my 100th rater. I am glad to hear that you like the controls. I tried hard to make them feel out of control without being frustrating.

Submitted

Ooooh, rip Sonni ;(

Such a cute game with a cute concept. The controls are a bit too floaty for my liking. Also, I'm so sorry for you dog :(

Developer

Thanks for playing, your feedback, and your kind words. I tried to make the controls feel a little out of control. It is a hard line to walk and they sometimes get a little too floaty. Again thanks for playing :)

Fun little tasks. Not many dog games out there so this is special. I wish it was longer with slightly more tasks but this is solid for a jam. Good job!

Developer(+1)

Thanks for taking the time to write a comment. I would also have liked more tasks but ran out of time. I had plans for the dog to ride a skateboard and to put out a fire.

Submitted

Understandable! Those tasks sound fun.

Submitted

The movement was a bit slippery, but overal a pretty nice game.

Developer

Thanks for playing and your feedback. I want the controls to be a little slippery, but I ended up making them a little too much sometimes :)

Submitted

Amazing work with the aesthetics, premise, and humor of this game! I didn't expect tank controls, but I deeply appreciate how easy it is to slip around the room. I'm sorry for your loss of your dog, but you did a great job with this entry.

Developer(+1)

I am glad to hear that you like the aesthetics and humor of the game. I wanted the controls to be a bit slippery so nice to hear it worked. Thanks for your kind words, they are much appreciated.

I have to admit, jumping on the bed gave me a very strong simulation of the feeling I get in real life.

Also, the fact that you always had the camera be focused towards the door, it was almost menacing! I thought, now he is going to come back, now he is going to come back NOW HE IS GOING TO COME BACK!

Developer

Thanks for playing and writing a comment. I am glad to hear you liked the game :)

Submitted

That was a fun and meaning fun game! I enjoyed it, the only feedback I have was the controls were very slippery, great job! 

Developer

Thanks for your comment. I wanted the controls to be a little slippery so you felt more like a dog out of control, but sometimes it gets a little too much. Glad that you enjoyed it :)

Submitted

Well that was a wholesome experience. :)

Developer

Thanks for taking the time to play my game and writing a comment :)

I LOVE IT !!!!!   It is so much fun, I enjoined the background, I enjoined the music , I enjoined the tasks it is so funny, and I enjoined that I got to see your dog at the end . I LOVED IT.

Developer

Thanks for playing. I am super glad to hear you loved it :D 

Submitted

Fun lil jam game! Wish I would do the tasks out of order and the ui was a bit bigger, making it easier to read but over all this is a fun lil cute game about a dog out of control! -Zane

Developer(+1)

Thanks for playing and your feedback. The plan was that you could do the tasks in any order, but it was creating many problems. I decided to make them sequential because of the deadline getting close. Again thanks for playing :)

Submitted

Really good aesthetics and cool mechanics. I'd never leave my dog home after playing with this. :D Great game!

Developer

Thanks for playing. Glad to hear you like the aesthetics and mechanics :)

Submitted

Love the style, it is very cute. Really cool idea similar to some other games but i like the camera and perspective gave a slightly differnt take on it. Great job!

Developer

Thanks for playing my game. I am glad to hear that you like it :)

Submitted

This is a really cute game that fits the theme well! I really like the low poly style. I had a lot of fun running around enjoying the life of a home dog :).

Developer

Really nice controls and visuals. A very polished, amusing experience. Also, sorry to hear about the loss of your dog.

Developer

Thanks for playing. I am glad to hear that you find the game amusing. Thanks for your kind words they are much appreciated.

Submitted

Absolutely love how the dog controls, very awkward but really fun! Would be nice if there was some way to control the camera but that was a minor gripe. Great job!

Developer

Great to hear you like the controls. I wanted them to feel a little out of control because you are a dog. A couple of hours before submitting, I tried some different camera controls, but everything resulted in the human animations looking bad and wall clipping. I am not sure how I would give the player more control over the camera, but I agree it would be nice if possible. Thanks for playing and taking the time to write a comment :)

Submitted

Cool game! Very polished. Well done.
