So I have started working on a dog (creatures, but right now there is only a dog) petting game, thinking that that would be a good hook, since people often likes to pet dogs in games and the only games to develop this (as far as I know) were nintendogs and a couple of very small indie games.
I have teamed up with an animator and put together the mechanics and a very basic reaction. I decided to record a few seconds and post it on several places (reddit, twitter, tigsource...) to see if it had any traction. Responses were minimal everywhere and I am trying to find out why. This is the video (i post it in gif form in most places, though).
What do you think? Do you find it difficult to understand what is happening, the idea is attractive but the presentation is not or viceversa, it is just not remarkable enough in any sense...?
Thanks for your opinions.
