I loved this game!! This is prob how I would actually be at a party anyway.. Haha. But really, I had a lot of fun with this. Def try it out!
Here is my video if you want to watch
Amazingly cute and stressful - Really enjoyed it
my highscore is 7 pups peted
My working theory is that this game takes place on an Earth where the Earths rotation has stopped, making it so one side of Earth is really hot and one side is really cold. This house is situated directly in-between both sides making it the perfect party. Hence why there are infinite party-goers who are blue (from being too cold on their side) and pink (who are sunburnt from their side)
This is perfect. This has everything I could ever want to do at a party! On the Linux version on Fedora 35, I ran into an issue after petting the third pup where nothing would generate besides the doors and I would just fall and I had to restart. It happened twice, but other than that this game is perfect!
love this game!! unfortunately it won't go full screen :(
i really enjoyed this game, keep up the good work dev's
Incredibly fun and expressive game. Excellent aftercare after playing dark souls.
Do you like puppys? Do you like kittens? Well, you've come to the right place! Pet the Pup is a first person party simulator where you (the anti-social animal lover) have one simple task:
Pet the Pup (or Cat)!!!
The premise of the game is really simple, you run around from room to room, trying to find the new pup/cat that spawned in the level to pet. There's not much to it, and with each room, guest, obstacles, and pet being randomly generated, no two levels will feel the same. Also with directional hearing, as you approach the pet in the level, you will hear them bark in the direction that they are located (a really nice touch)
A few issues I had with the game are as follow:
- Speaking to party-goers does nothing but increase a counter when you run out of time; it doesn't increase or decrease your time, doesn't stop your character from moving, and really does nothing. I feel like this was a missed opportunity as it could've been used to stall the player or have nice mini-games
- You will run into duplicate pets..... a lot; because even the pets in the levels are random, and with there being 50+ pets to find and pet, you'll find yourself playing this game a lot just to find newer pets to pet.
All in all, this is a nice time spender that will keep you entertained for an hour or so.
It wont let me play it only lets me download the file i need help
there are cute pups. you should play it.
go pet them!
super cute game, i love the concept and the design!! the gameplay is very simple, but in a good way! you can tell there was a lot of effort put into it. :) loved this game, keep up the good work!! <3

Super adorable game!! It's too stressful for me but it's super adorable loop game! Highly recommend.
I'm not sure if it's a a bug but when i pet 9 pups the game glitches so there' no walls, floor, people, or even the pup. Its just a door and i keep falling and getting teleported back to the ceiling. Yeah fix this
Edit: I restart the game and it's fixed lol

A fun game with DOGS!!! <3
Was simple, was fun and was amazing! The pups were absolutely adorable and the art style was so cute! The simple mechanic of the whole game with some extra depth really went well together as a whole and made this such a great game! This was... Paw-tastrophic. *badum tish*
my experience with this game: the whole time i was like "where's the good boi" and "oh you are so cute"
A very wholesome game indeed!!!
This has to the cutest most stressful game. I LOVE IT!!
