DISCO DOG!!!

Hey! I played your game on stream and had a blast. Loved the concept, reminded me of the move "The Thing" (which is my favorite horror movie). I liked it a lot! The different endings were nice. I made a vid, hope u don't mind!

Hi, great game !
I was wondering what kind of speech synthesizer you used at the beginning of the game ?

I believe it is TruVoice!

Sounds like MS Sam

Strange, but fun! ^_^ I played both games together. It was fun finding all the different endings. I really loved the disco dog ones lol

This was pleasantly fun!

I found all the 3 endings. The game is simple and fun!

After playing Doghouse 2, I just had to know the origins of this legendary franchise.

I loved this silly game! The game was short and sweet, and the little elderich puppo was a delight! The third "secret" ending is definitely my favorite ❤️ gotta love funky monsters!!

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8y497PlwQZb_RsFQ9kKHWw/videosI played the sequel to this game, it was both scary and funny at the same time. But this game is entirely different and still gave me a couple of scares.

Great Game/Recommended/Promoted 

I messed up the comment and I can't seem to fix this without re-typing everything... 

(+1)

..it's too much trouble to retype 30+ words?

(+2)

Both games were amazing and I enjoyed both of them! They were very interesting and I had lots of fun. I Can't wait until I play more of your wonderful creations.

It's not often that I don't get to write a very long winded review, but this game.....

You make a dog house because you love your dog, and he clearly isn't some kind of disco-loving, Eldritch horror or anything. What glues this all together is that you shouldn't go into this house

All in all, dog is god backwards, and you should play this game :)

My playthrough (1&2):

(+2)

can you make doghouse1 and 2 for browser?

(+2)

I plan to remaster these games eventually; whenever that is, I will make a browser version for each of them.

for how short the game is it really was a good one! not many horror games that I've seen or played uses a dog the way you did! Definitely will play Doghouse 2! 

(+2)

Oh yeah, this one was useful too.

I knew I picked a good obscure one. The 3rd ending is by far my favorite. I'm already off to play the second one! Good job dev! <3

Played this game on my Channel's Series called 3 SCARY GAMES! It's the 2nd game I played in the video starting at 7:23!

This game is proof that games don't be long or full of backstory to be truly unsettling. I thought everything about this game was amazing, and was worth the wild ride!
