WARNING: Contains mild violence and drug use

PHOTOSENSITIVE SEIZURE WARNING:
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching video games.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects.
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms - children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures.

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by taking the following precautions:
• Play in a well-lit room
• Do not play when you are drowsy or fatigued
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.

Boy. Excuse my yarn-stringed review here, never written a steam review before. May as well post one here, I like this game, and enthuse about it to my friends, not only because if they don't like it they don't have to waste a bunch of money, but also because it's a fun pick up and play game.

I picked this game up ages ago back when it was Domestic Dog Simulator. A lot of my friends bashed it at the time, I'm kind of frugal/poor and saw this cute atari-style game for cheap during the sale. Don't regret picking it up way back when.

It's funny, but humour is subjective, either you find it funny, or you don't. People are individuals, we all have different tastes, so it's not like we can expect everyone to find the same things funny, on the same note, people most definately can have tastes in humour that lead them to find this sense of comedy boorish, unfunny, etc.

It all boils down to what kind of experience you want from a game. If you were looking for a real dog simulator game... This really isn't that great, tbh. It's almost taking the ♥♥♥♥. It's definately good for a bit of fun, a lot of bang for your buck. There's minigames, lots of things to do, too.

Honestly? I can't really write a majorly convincing review for this game as to why you can buy it, because it'd be like trying to convince you to like MY sense of humour, which is pretty impossible.
Just don't take it too seriously, it's not that deep fam.

I don't understand all the hate. In order to play this game you need to turn your mind off and just enjoy the humor and silliness. It's definitly not a game that you should take seriously. I recomend it if you're looking for something to just chill with, not spend hours and hours on end with. If you're looking for that, The Elder Scrolls are right down the hall, to your left.

Not bad for $2. A great game to farm achievements on, decent sim mechanics, nice aesthetic even for the typical indie pixel game.

Has an even better dedicated ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ button than Postal 2, and you can eat your own ♥♥♥♥.

Could benefit from being more regularly updated and extra content, psuedo rpg elements and save files would really make this a 10/10 in my opinion.

Overall rating 7/10.

Poor effort.

Another player described this game to me as "Youtube bait" and i totally agree. There is no obvious objective nor is there a storyline to follow. You walk around and pee on things and thats pretty much the whole game.

Look, I was going to write a dumb sarcastic thing in all caps about how wacky this game is and all, but I just don't think it's worth the effort. You deserve better, Mr. Discerning Steam Customer. Here's the real ♥♥♥♥.

This game isn't good. People enjoy quirky, gimmicky games like Goat Simulator and I Am Bread because there's something substantial and replayable behind the silly premise. You buy, let's say Surgeon Simulator, because hahaha that's not how you do a heart transplant, but you keep coming back because you're getting the hang of manually controlling your hand and manipulating your tools, and you begin to do it more for the fun and challenge of it than the joke. Above all, you keep coming back.

On the other hand, underneath the skin of Dog Sim is a bunch of tedious ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. You have, I kid you not, like five meters to keep track of. You need to babysit these meters constantly. When your food or water meter depletes, your actual, time-until-you-die health meter begins to slowly tick down, and I could not find a way to restore that for the life of me. Unfortunately, your sleep meter decreases every time you eat or drink to increase those meters (or do anything else), and depletion of the sleep meter causes you to pass out for several seconds, during which you may be robbed of all of your dog money by a passing raccoon, or killed instantly by a car if (God forbid) you passed out on a highway. This may sound pedantic given how much the developers stress that lives in this game are fleeting and easily lost, but there is progression here. You don't want to die while you're playing an arcade game or sussing out an easter egg, right? You end up so busy monitoring your health that you don't have any time to actually explore, so what's the point in trying?

In conclusion, savee that $4 and get yourself a little extra bacon on that next burger instead. Oh sorry, what I meant to say was LOL I PEED ON A FIRE HYDRANT AND GOT RUN OVER 11/10 GOTY. I ATE CHOCOLATE AND POOPED ON A HYDRANT AND THE POOP EXPLODED 5/5 MMM I LOVE WACKY JOKE. YUM YUM PUT THE MEMES IN MY MOUTH AGHLGLGLGL GOD YES. I AM A HUSK OF A HUMAN BEING AND ONLY THE SHALLOWEST OF JINGLE-KEY CLOWN GAMES CAN FILL ME. PLEASE, SURREAL DISTRACTIONS, SHAPE ME INTO THE FUNCTIONING ADULT MY PARENTS WISH I WAS

If this looks like Pewdiebait to you, you are probably right. I usually suck at distinguishing pewdiebait from real games, but this game is not very interesting when you start playing it. It's more like having to do chores as a dog. Boring as hell. Sure, there are some fun dogs, but as soon as it dies it's gone and you will have to hope for something that doesn't suck as much. It seems alright at first, but soon you will start to notice that within every 5 seconds you have to fix one of the bars that's down to red. You will have to eat, sleep and poop so frequently you start wondering if this dog has any sense of time. Thanks to the lack of explanation you are also left in the dark as to what you should do to fix something, how to keep on sleeping until the bar is full (It interrupts at irregular intervals) and how much food you actually have. You will also notice a vicious cycle of I have no food -> I have no money to buy food -> I dig for money -> I need more food but I have no food -> I have no money to buy food and so on and so on and so on. The game contains some fun easter eggs here and there but without a real goal and seemingly effectless shops the game will bore you before you even started to like it. It's cheap, so if you really need to kill some time you might want this, but you're better off doing almost anything else.

a game that was meant to be played by overrated youtubers who appeal to fans with a demographical age of 8 years olds

...

it's kind of hard to judge a game that is meant to be stupid and is 2 dollars, so if you are dying to spend money on something then go ahead, its right here

Should've been a flash game, don't waste your money on this :/

There's literally no point to this game, you get to pee on stuff yay. You require more maintenance than a tamagotchi when you were five, yay. You get to play "fun cool retro games", yay.

I don't know what I expected, yet I am still disappointed.
