The cure for social anxiety is Puppies!

This was a fun game! For some reason the game audio didn't get recorded in the video even though I heard it while I was playing. But other than that, this is a neat game that I had fun trying to get a pup petting streak!

This was a very cool game!  I really enjoyed playing it awesome job! :D 

My friend and I drank and played this game, its so cute!!! 10/10 one of my fave games ever.

No idea if this is just me, but it's not working. I click on it and open it up, which works fine, but once opened no words popped up, the title screen was white and purple and black. Thinking it was a glitch for the title screen, I clicked on, and the house was one room consisting of grey walls and a purple floor, and moving makes the room just grey. Any suggestions on what to do to fix it? Or is this only for me?

oh goodness, i've never heard of this before! what machine/OS are you playing on?

I’m playing on a laptop with Windows 10. If you would wish to have more information feel free to ask. (I just noticed while looking around my computer there was an update on it that has been there since possibly before I went to get your game. I don't know if a computer with an update could mess up parts of a game, but perhaps that’s it?) Thank you.

Markiplier just played this game and I thought it looked pretty cool. I like that fact you're kind of collecting the dogs you pet and they have bios. 

The game starts at 22:22

whoa, amazing!! thanks so much for letting me know!

(+1)

Awesome arcade style game that makes you want to run and, pet doggos over and, over again. Being parties are lame but, doggos are forever!

woo, doggos for life!

(+1)

Ive Never played a game like this. I had a good time with it and im looking forward to your next game

so glad to hear! thanks for playing!

(+1)

I had a very fun time with this game aswell as some difficult moments but I overall enjoyed the game very much! Hope to see more games from you!

thank you for playing!

Saw this was on SGDQ last week and had to take a look. I think we can all relate to finding some good pups at parties - although the game also advocates cat pictures (blasphemy!) The procedural generation was neat; I liked the labyrinthine setup of the house. Does it keep generating as you go, or is it limited in size?

Anyways, I had fun with this one so I condensed my time with it in to a short video. Thanks for putting it out there!

(+1)

so glad you liked it! yep, each house layout is procedurally generated but limited in scale, size, and room possibilities based on player progress!

Ah, makes sense. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!

(+1)

This game was perfect. It was about my exact favorite thing to do :D

woo, thanks for playing!!

(+1)

I made a video on this game!

It's a good video, I promise!

thank you!!

You're welcome!

(+2)

I saw this speedrun at SGDQ and knew I wanted to play it. I wish you allowed for inverted y-axis. 

thanks for playing it!! yes, i've gotten some requests for that – one day i hope to crack this guy back open and tweak a few things under the hood.

This is adorable and fun! This house is crazy large and apparently everyone I try to talk to swears at me. I dig it

(+2)

thanks so much!!! ❤️❤️

Such an adorable game with a fun concept! The art style pulled me in immediately and I can TOTALLY relate: petting puppies is always a highlight of a party.

Thanks for making such a wonderful experience ♡ ♡ ♡

I am not able to play the game, although I have unzipped all of the files. Where do I send the crash report?

oh no!! so sorry for the trouble -- is the game crashing on you when you try to open it? what OS are you on?

The game crashes as soon as I try to open it. I am on Windows (specifically Windows 7.) Thanks for the speedy response!

ahh that's so strange! i haven't encountered any crashing issues -- very sorry it's giving you trouble. is it giving you an error message or just crashing straight to desktop and closing the game?

It gives me an error message as well as creates a file titled as the current date (presumably a crash report.) Thanks for the help

very sorry for the delay! can i bug you to email the error message and crash log to: will@likethefish.net? i'll see what i can figure out!

(+1)

Fantastic art style and a cute little soundtrack that matches well with the environment as well as the puppers! All I can say is, it may not be the next Fallout 4 but it sure was a great way to spend 20 minutes!!! :D 

(+1)

This game is great! It reminds me a lot of Mission Hill.

(+1)

thanks so much!! and yesss, mission hill for life!

(+1)

This game was sooooo cute, and I love the design of all the puppers. Had to give my dog extra tummy rubs after spending so long with these virtual doggies.
