How does your game fit the theme?
The game's feel and subject matter fit the theme. You must maintain control of walking your 4 dogs. When they're distracted, they can run away. Their distractions are represented through micro-games, and you'll eventually have to juggle playing multiple games at once.

Thank you! They're based on my actual, easily distracted dogs.

Nice work! Love how you implemented the theme in this one. And nice touch that the character is wearing a mask. Bravo!

Developer

Thanks a lot!!! Can't walk your dogs today without wearing a mask.

I tried really hard to get 4 dogs but for some reason in the last sequence, sometimes button mashing just wouldnt do anything for lick eat and dig up. Shame. Art is great, gameplay is just stressful enough, and music is fitting. Really echoes how uncontrollable dogs can be haha.

Thanks a lot for the comment. First, I'm glad you played it and enjoyed it. Also, thanks for letting me know about the bug you encountered. Were you using a Mac or PC, and was it a laptop or desktop, and were you playing on a keyboard or gamepad?
I only got to test on one device, a PC laptop, so for me it worked well with keyboards and gamepads.

Amazing art! I really love the characters and adding animation to them just makes the presentation so polished looking and gives so much character. One of the visually best games of the jam!

Developer

Wow!!! Thanks so much. Reading this made my night.

That was quite fun! It's a shame there couldn't be one more gameplay variant so that two games were not both mashing, and it could have been a little more immediately clear how "Sit, Stay" worked, but when I figured it all out it was quite a fun little romp.

Developer

Thanks for playing it, the nice workds, and for the feedback. Yeah, I plan on adding a few microgames with different variants. For now, I have 2 button mashers, one where you have to hold down a button, and one where you have press the button at the right time. I also want to randomize them.

Wearing masks is a plus in terms of artwork. The bass brass seemed a bit strong in my opinion.

Nice artstyle, aswell as original idea ! Maybe changing which action goes on which control once in a while can make the game a bit harder, as you begin to repeat the same pattern without thinking after a while :)

Developer

Thanks so much for playing it, for the nice comments, and for the feedback! Yes, as soon as the voting process ends, I'm gonna polish it and incorporate that idea.
