Business Dog

bizdoggif

This weekend I participated in a 48hour game jam.  Each participant was randomly assigned a game idea.  I received "Business Dogs...? F###, I don't know."

So I designed a game where you acquire knowledge so you CAN know, and in doing so eventually get hired to be a BUSINESS DOG. (If you know enough human business knowledge, people won't realize you're a dog!)

Sneak around and find business knowledge to win!

Release notes

  • Compatible with WASD or X360 controller (you could also rebind Horizontal, Vertical, and Look Axis in input options during startup).
  • On the part with the six rotating guards standing around pillars, sometimes they get out of sync and it can make things really difficult / impossible. Sorry.
  • Designed for 720p/1080p. Not sure what'll happen on other aspect ratios

The Implausible Zone

Over the weekend I participated in the LD34 gamejam.  I wrote and made some art for a short Comedy/Adventure game, which was produced in roughly two days.  It's pretty rough, but people at the jam site seemed to think it was funny, so hopefully you will too 🙂
